How To Make An Ornament Gift Card Holder Out Of An Embroidery Hoop

Learn how to make an adorable ornament gift card holder out of an embroidery hoop – everyone will love it!

Hello! I’m Michelle back from from Our Crafty Mom with a fun embroidery hoop Christmas ornament that serves double duty as a gift card or money holder. While I made this ornament with my little nieces in mind, you can easily change out the colors and image used for something more neutral.

If you are giving gift cards or cash this holiday season, step it up a notch with a cool DIY gift card holder. It’s so much better than just handing over an envelope. Plus, you can personalize it with the recipient’s favorite animal and colors. I could totally see a fun superhero like spiderman or batman for the boys.

One of the things that’s great about this gift card holder, is you can really use whatever supplies you have on hand. While I used felt, you could also use fabric scraps, or even book pages if you want.

cut out the vinyl image with your cutting machine

I used my Cricut Joy to cut an adorable floral deer SVG from Cricut Design Space. But, you can use whatever cutting machine you have and whatever graphic you like.

Attach the SVG to the front center of the felt. I used permanent vinyl, so it was very easy to secure it.
