Even though gift cards aren't exactly as thoughtful as a handmade present, they are definitely convenient! I personally love getting gift cards. Who doesn't want an extra $20 to spend at their favorite shop? So, since they are lacking in the handmade department, I thought it would be fun to tuck them inside a knit or crochet gift card case. This way the recipient gets something handmade and they can store all of their gift cards in one place!

Add something embroidered to the front of one of the pieces. I used chain stitch for the heart. Sew the two pieces together leaving the top open. Weave in ends.
