Gift Card Pouch – Scrap Busting

I’ve just given this tutorial a bit of a facelift!

These gift card pouches are so cute and and a bit more personal that a gift card on it’s own.

The best thing about these is you can use scraps!

Cut out:

(2) 3 ¼ “x 4 ½” pieces of your exterior fabric
(1)  3 ¼” x 3 ¾ “piece of your pocket fabric
(1) 3 ¼ “x 4 ½” piece of thin fusible fleece

You can use ribbon or cut an extra 1 1/2″ x 5″ piece for the top loop.
