Paper Bird (Gift Card Holder) Ornament

Paper Bird (Gift Card Holder) Ornament

Supplies:  heavy cardstock paper, ribbon and/or embroidery floss, scissors, hole punch.


start by cutting these 2 simple shapes 
Step 1
Cut out shape 1 the bird body.
Make this large enough to conceal a standard size gift card. (The bird's wing will aid in concealing the card.)

Step 2
Cut out shape 2 a wing.
This shape should be just large enough to snugly fit a gift card like
an envelope would.

Step 3
Attach the wing to the body. Stitch wing on using a large needle and
embroidery floss, using a running stitch. Take care in the placement
of the wing to properly conceal the gift card from the front yet roomy enough to easily pull out from the back.

Step 4
Loop a ribbon and attach to top for hanging.

Step 5
Add embellishments of your choice; thread, glitter or ink markings,
anything you like.


You may decide to present this hanging on a tree branch, popping out
of a stocking or tucked into a (large) card.

here is a slimmer bird body
