Diy Christmas Gift Card Holder

I can’t believe Christmas is just a few weeks away.  I put up my Christmas tree last week and couldn’t wait to start filling it with presents. One of the easiest gifts I love giving during the holidays are gift cards. But I hate putting them in cards, I’ve never been a fan of cards so I just don’t give them. Target challenged me along with other bloggers, to create a unique way to give a gift card to friend this year.





Spending under $25, I started to think about the foodies in my life and what they would want. Using your standard pot holder as an envelope, you could fill this up with a Target GiftCard® along with a few kitchen accessories and a recipe card. The recipe has almost all of the tools needed to make their favorite Christmas cookies thanks to you. Target now allows you to purchase gift cards online, so if you don’t have a location near you and want to make this gift card holder you can just buy everything at
