Sew and Tell: burlap gift card holder

Have you jumped on the burlap crafting train? If so, and you have scraps of burlap, you can make some quick and easy gift card holders.

Just cut a piece of fabric measuring approximately 3.5” x 8”. Fold the bottom and the top to form an envelope and iron.

Sew the edges together using a straight or zigzag stitch.  

Insert a gift card and tie off with a piece of twine.


  1. sweet idea, it looks so thoughtful! And gift cards are sometimes the gift of last resort, but this makes it such a nicer option :)

  2. That's so cute Carolyn! Really pretty! Thanks so much, I'll be linking in, thanks for the how-to!

  3. What material you use for doing this? I hope Gift Card envelopes you will do something on it.

  4. Simply STUNNING work Dear, LOVE all those details, layers and gorgeousness!

  5. What a great idea! Simple, fast, and effective. Way to put those fabric scraps to (gorgeous) good use. I know my readers at AllFreeSewing.com would love these gift card holders, especially with the holiday approaching!
