While going through my pictures I found another project that I made for the holidays. I found the idea originally at Infarrantly Creative so I made my own for some friends and family. The no-sew part didn't agree with me - I burnt the felt so I went ahead and stitched it up, which I think I like even better because I could use different stitches. The snowball ornaments were part of the same post and super easy to make.
I also found the idea to make my own gift card holder out of leftover felt scrape....I am horrible at keeping track of which blog I find the ideas but it is not my original idea, sadly. So somewhere out there in blog land is a great little gift card holder tutorial but I do remember that the post did not use felt.
I basically cut two pieces of felt into rectangles, on one of them I cut a slit large enough to slide in the gift card, sewed the two together (I decided to leave a raw edge). I used some more scraps to make a little 2" circles and layered them, then hot glued a bell to the middle as I gathered the fabric around it. I then used hot glue to attach it to the felt.
