Embroidered Leather Gift Card Holder

If you're getting gift cards for friends and coworkers this year, make the gift feel more unique and personalized with this embroidered leather card case. This tutorial will teach you how to embroider on leather (it's not as tricky as you'd think!) for a wallet-like feel to the case. It's pretty, elegant, and much more meaningful than a paper envelope.

Think embroidering on leather is too difficult? This tutorial will show you how easy it is. Soon you'll be stitching on all your favorite leather items. You can even get started right away by making a leather card case. Similar to embroidering on wood, the secret to hand stitching leather lies in pre-poking the holes. Once you do that, the embroidery is easy.
