Gift Card Holder Photo Tutorial

June is full of graduations. Not including my own gradution, I had several to attend this month. Gift cards are the perfect gift...they are never the wrong color or size. We made a gift card holder for June's Stamp Club project.

Starting with your favorite cardstock or DSP (here I'm using First Edition) cut to 6 1/2 x 5 1/2.
On the 6 1/2 side, score at 1/2" and 3".

On the 5 1/2 side, score at 3".

Add Sticky Strip to the 1/2" flap.

Fold over and adhere.
Looks like a flattened tube.

Fold up on that 3" score line.
You should have 2 "pockets"--one for a piece of cardstock to add a sentiment
and one for the gift card.

This is a view of the "pockets" from the other direction.

Crease your folds.

Stamp as desired.  Here I'm using a butterfly from Papillon Potpourri in Gumball Green.

Stamp your cardstock insert (Very Vanilla 2 1/4 x3 3/4 ).
Stamp whatever greeting you desire, or write your own note to the recipient.

Add ribbon (Gumball Green 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon), cardstock insert and gift card.

Happy Stamping!  Bye for now, Maria
