I am so excited to share today’s pattern … this adorable Santa crochet gift card holder! Awhile back I shared my patterns for these basic crochet gift card holders. And when I saw how Nicole Gerbe added a Santa twist to the pattern with her gift card holder project here on Ravelry, I knew I wanted to share her idea with all of you as well. So with her permission, I worked up a pattern for you to make one too. Hope you enjoy it! Thanks so much Nicole for the inspiration!!
