Giving gift cards or cash for Christmas? Have you seen the prices of gift card holders? Here's an inexpensive way to present them for Christmas. Using felt sheets, double over and lay a gift card on it as a guide. You can get two stockings out of one 8x11 sheet of felt. Cut out a stocking shape allowing for small seams on sides. Use decorative scissors on raw edges. Sew or glue all edges except the top of stocking. Decorate these with beads, buttons, cinnamon sticks, small wrapped candies, etc (again let you imagination go wild). Insert gift card or money inside and these can be hung from the tree by adding a string for hanging or they tuck nicely into a card. Just a little added touch to your gift.
