This crochet gift card holder is quick and cute. The easy to crochet heart shape creates a sweet place to hold that gift card. Secure it with a button and it’s ready.
If you’re in need of a last minute teacher gift, or a Valentine’s Day gift, then this crochet heart gift card holder is just for you! It’s the perfect way to personalize “just a gift card” gifts!
It’s quick to work up, so create a few for Valentine’s day, birthday gifts, mother’s day, graduation, father’s day… any time is a great time to give a little handmade heart!
I love the combination of classic pink and the little teal button. So Sweet.
And of course, your crochet heart would not be complete without a gift card from your teacher’s favorite restaurant.
Or maybe she needs a gift card for her favorite place to shop for school supplies… or just for herself.
This crochet heart got outlined in a contrasting lighter pink. It really sets off the shape.

work two stitches into the point of the heart, chain 4 (or more if using a large button), sc a 3rd time into the point of the heart, securing the chain button loop,
and continue sc around the heart, slip stitch and fasten off.
