Easy Fabric Card Holders Tutorial

Have  you noticed how beautiful the designer fabric is now? I fell in love with Amy Butler and a few others not long ago, and bought a bunch of charm packets to use for quilting. Needless to say I never got around to making any quilts, just a runner for my dining room buffet. Still I’m always thinking of ways to use this pretty fabric.

Fabric Card Holders

Learn how to make simple card holders from 5 in squares of coordinating fabric. Use for business cards or a gift card package.

These fabric card holders can be used for your own business cards. However, I think they also make a beautiful gift card holder.

Fabric Card Holders - Charm fabric squares

Materials:

The Process
