Frosty & Ginger Gift Card Holders!
People, we are down to the wire! If you haven’t finished making your gifts, consider giving a gift card, cash or IOU and inserting them in these adorable Frosty & Ginger Gift Card Holders. It still has a hand made touch, but you could knock these out in a few minutes and move on to the cookie baking!
I worked these with scraps of worsted weight yarn, so I’m not sure how much I used, but I believe it’s under 30 yards total for each. Use buttons or googly eyes for the facial features and tie the “scarf” to hold the contents in place. You could even crochet a long chain across the top and hand them on the tree!
Whatever you do, enjoy the holidays!
