Gift cards and cash are super popular gifts. But don’t give it in a boring envelope. Make it fun by adding it to an adorable gift card holder DIY using an upcycled men’s shirt! This is not just a Christmas gift card holder either. You can use this for birthdays, father’s day, etc.
Gift Card Holder DIY (using Upcycled Men’s Shirt)
SUPPLIES needed for Gift Card Holder DIY
- Upcycled Men’s Shirt – check out the thrift stores!
- Fabric Scissors
- Hot Glue Gun or Stitch Witchery
- Gift Card
Step 1. Use your fabric scissors to cut along the cuff of the men’s shirt. You can see where the threading is and cut just below that.
STEP 2. Place the gift card in the center of the cut shirt cuff to use as a template. Run a bead of hot glue along the edge and secure.
STEP 3. Place stitch witchery or hot glue on the inside of the shirt and fold the shirt in half. Use a hot iron for about 10-15 seconds to fuse the fabric together.
STEP 4. Place the gift card inside your new gift card holder and close the buttons that are already on the holder from your upcycled shirt.
Another great thing about this holder is it can be reused again and again. Though, I don’t think I would want to part with it if I received one.
That’s all there is to it! I made 3 of these holders in no time at all! If you’d rather give cash, you can also fold that in half to fit in the holder.
