Reindeer gift card holder

Since a lot of gift cards don't come with holders anymore, I wanted to make something to put one in for a Christmas present. Luckily, I know people who collect patterns to all kinds of things! My mom made a bunch of felt Christmas ornaments a few years ago and in with all of her felt, there was a pattern for a reindeer gift card holder. Even better, she had kept the original website with the pattern, so I'm happy to share My Little Mochi's felt reindeer pouches pattern with you! It was originally posted in 2007 and it looks like since then there's been a lot of other freebie patterns posted on the site as well as some books and even a shop where you can buy some of the more complicated patterns. I tweaked the reindeer pattern a bit since I was able to find buttons for the eyes and nose and substituted a button closure on the back instead of a snap. Probably a bit too late to be much help for anyone else for Christmas this year, but there's always next year!

Do you have any creative gift card holder ideas?
