Christmas Present Utensil Holder

As promised in the Bunco ornaments post, I am sharing how I made the cute little present silverware / utensil holders. They were very simple to do, but since I made 24 of them it took me several hours to get all the way through them.

Present Utensil Holder


  • Two 4" x 4" felt squares. These were designed for plastic cutlery, you should make them caller if you are planning to use these for your regular silverware. 
  • Five 4" strips of ribbon. Two for the present and three for the bow
  • 1 Button
  • Sewing supplies


  1. One the front of one square, sew the ribbon in a cross pattern. I measured 1" from the right side, and 1" from the top. I sewed one stitch line down the center of each ribbon.
  2. Sew the two felt pieces together with a zig-zag stitch on the very edge.
  3. Glue the remaining three pieces of ribbon into loops.
  4. Glue the ribbon loops to the felt where the ribbon pieces intersect.
  5. Embellish with a button in the center. 

I only had two of those cute little swirly buttons, so for the rest I used just regular 4 hole buttons, I had in my stash.  Here is the whole place setting again. I really loved the square embossed plates I found at Hobby Lobby. The only problem is that the main course was soup. So I went with the small dessert plates for the desserts and appetizers that I served. The polka dot napkins came from Walmart, although Hobby Lobby did sell some similar polka dot napkins too.

Thanks for reading! I can't wait to tell you about the fun food we had at Bunco.
