An ORIGINAL gift card holder tutorial...

This year...gift card holders have been a great deal at my work...my boss and my co-workers love the idea and have asked me to make a few...I have been looking around for different styles and then I decided I will come up with my own...I am so proud of myself. So here is the tutorial for this gift card holder...I hope you will use it and give me credit =)
First, cut your cardstock to 4 1/4" height x 8 1/2" width...
with an 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock, you can make 2 of these gift card holders...
I used real red cardstock for this demonstration.
score at 4 1/4"...(picture above)
then, score @ 3" the long way...
cut the left side off...
cut the scored line of 3" till you meet up with the 4 1/4" scored line.
crease the scored lines...fold up the right side
(which will be your pocket for your gift card)
you can use brads to hold the pocket in place.
decorate the front to your liking...
I used the sizzix santa, DP paper from SU and ribbon.
Here's what the pocket (inside) looks like.
I chose to use sugar coated brads to hold the pocket in place.

I hope you were intrigued to try something simple and easy to make.
Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!
Have a great Wednesday!!!
