I have a confession. I’m not the most timely when it comes to making handmade holiday gifts. No matter how early I vow to start my crafting, you’ll find me locked in my room on the eve of any given holiday, juggling a glue gun in one hand, paper cutter in another, painting chipboard and stringing bunting until the sun comes up. In between cooking, decorating, and last-minute place card additions, time can fly by faster than the Polar Express.

Bitty Bag Gift Card Holder
