Are you giving gift cards or cash this year for Christmas? You can still add a bit of handmade charm to your gift by crocheting these Mini Present Pockets to put them in. Embellished with a bow, just like a real parcel, these Gift Card Holders look great hung up on a tree as an ornament or even tied onto a bigger gift as a gift tag – just slip a piece of paper with the recipients name into the pocket.

If you are super organised, get started on next years advent calendar and make 24 to hang on a tree or branch. Add little treats and activity ideas to each pocket. What a fun idea!

I’ve used Lily Sugar’n Cream from American Yarns for this project. There are several festive colour combinations in the range and I’ve chosen the classic, red, green, and white of Ombre Mistletoe which pools into a spiral around the pouch.

Other fun colourways to try would be Ombre Azalea (Red & White like a candy cane) or Stripes Holiday (pictured below).

Of course this is a perfect project for using up leftover yarn and ribbon scraps. Have fun making Gift Card Holders in a rainbow of your favourite colour combinations.

6. Turn inside out and flatten. You can slip a card in at this stage to test if it fits.

TIP: If it’s too small you can either add an extra stitch to the initial chain or use a larger hook. If it’s too large, make your initial chain one stitch shorter or use a smaller hook.
