How to crochet a gift card envelope

17 June 2020

Are you the kind of person who likes to give gift cards? But you don’t want to give them in the standard presentation envelope? I am that kind of person. So I designed a nice envelope myself. Next time you’re giving a gift card away, you know you’ve got an original gift ;-).


Left over yarn is perfect to make this project! I’ve had some Royal yarn left (comparable to worsted weight yarn) and some Yarn & Colors Cotton for the finishing touch.

Used stitches

CH – Chain
SC – Single Crochet
HDC – Half Double Crochet
DC – Double Crochet


Front envelope
R1 – Chain 25 and make 23 SC, chain 1
R2 – 18 – 23 single crochet, chain 1

Back envelope
R1 – Chain 25 and make 23 SC, chain 1
R2 – 20 – 23 single crochet, chain 1
R21 – Decrease 1 DC, SC, *DC, SC*. Decrease 1 DC (21), chain 1, turn.
R22 – Repeat row 21 (19)
R23 – Repeat row 21 (17)
R24 – *DC, SC*, repeat till end. You will end with a double crochet in the last stitch.
R25 – Repeat row 21 (15)
R26 – Repeat row 24 (15)
R27 – Repeat row 21 (13)
R28 – DC, SC, DC, SC, DC, SC, CHAIN 1, SC, DC, SC, DC, SC, DC. Chain 1, turn. (the chain will be the hole for you flower button.)
R29 – Repeat row 24 (13)

Crochet 15 SV in a magic loop. Next: chain 1, 1 HDC, 1 ST, *2HDC, 1ST* . Repeat till end and close with a slip stitch. Fasten off.

Take the front and back of your envelop en lay them on top of each other. The back is two rows longer, so make sure you see those rows at the top of your front. Attach your cotton thread, while crocheting your boarder you will crochet the front and back together.

R1 – SC, close row with a slip stitch, chain one.
R2 – HDC, close row with a slip stitch and fasten off.

Short side front: 20 stitches
Long side front: 23 stitches
Crooked side flap: 16 stitches
Straight side flap: 13 stitches

Your envelope is almost finished. The only thing you need to do is to attach your flower on the front, so you can use this as a button.

To personalise your envelope even more, you can use slip stitches to make a text of simple figure.
