This is my first step-by-step tutorial so please be kind
I designed this cute little project after flipping through one of the fundraising gift wrap booklets my 3 year old little boy brought home…..Now, YES I did order a few items (my first year to be supportive) but I saw these "gift card" holders in it and thought I could come up with a much nicer version…..so off to the basement I went to create my prototype and here is what I came up with.
Step 1 – Cut cardstock 5 X 8 1/2 ( you can get 2 holders per piece of 8 1/2 X 11)
Step 2 – Using your Scor-Pal , Score at 3 1/2, 4 1/4, & 5
Step 3 – Fold the score lines as shown
Step 4 – place the fold side along the longest side of the Top Note die
Step 5 – Be sure to place the folded edge just inside the perforated lines
Step 6 – Run the die through your die cutting machine
Step 7 – Use the gift card to make tiny marks and with a cutting knife, slice the center fold line from one mark to the other
Step 8 – place one strip of sticky strip on the BACK side of the folder on the outermost edge.
Step 9 – Seal the back fold together and ensure your card will fit
Step 10 – Decorate the front
Step 11 – Add velcro tabs to the inside at the points
Step 12 – Don’t forget to decorate your envelope too!! ( SU’s gift card sized envelope shown here)
