DIY: Crochet Gift Card Holders.

Seeing as the holidays are swiftly approaching and I thought I'd whip up a Christmas Holiday themed project where you can utilize this project towards your own gift giving items. I love the idea of giving gift cards to those and offering them the liberty for them to choose their own gift. The idea of crafting a cute little holder to go with it, adds a little handmade touch, so it doesn't feel like you just handed over a card. So here is fun project that will only take a few minutes to make!

The Ingredients
>>3 Colors of Yarn/Red/Green/White all from Red Heart Yarn Super Saver Bundle
>>Yarn Sewing Needle
Crochet Techniques with abbreviations:
