DIY Gift Card Holder : Cute Santa Gift Card Bag Idea

I don’t know about you guys, but when I’m giving a gift card I am always looking for a clever way to wrap it up.  I am always on the hunt for a cute gift card holder or gift card bag ideas…something that makes a pint sized gift look fun and exciting.  I was at Michaels the other day and found these cute red drawstring bags and had an idea for a fun DIY gift card holder.

Cut a strip of black felt about 3/4 of an inch wide and the same width as your bag.  Glue the black felt to the bag as shown in image above.  Cut a small rectangle from the gray felt (about 1.5 inches x 1 inch) (shown in the image above) and cut a square out of the middle of the gray piece by folding it in half as shown in the image below.
