1" hole punch
scissors or Stampin' Up word window punch
sticky tape adhesive
Step 1: Cut the cardstock into a strip 4 1/4" x 11":
Step 4: Fold the score line in the middle of the center panel upward to create a "mountain":
Step 5: Flip over and attch sticky tape (red line) to the top, right side and bottom of the middle piece. DO NOT put tape along the fold!
Step 6: Fold the panel with the adhesive to the left and press down. The piece of cardstock should look like an upside down "T": This middle piece is where the gift card goes.
Step 8: Using a 1" hole punch or slightly larger, cut a notch in the center of this panel. This is to help pull out the gift card.
Step 9: Cover with designer paper. You will need 2 pieces cut at 3" x 4 1/2". These are for the front and back "covers". Adhere and ink the edges. Now you'll need four contrast pieces cut at 3" x 4 3/8" for the inside panels. Adhere each piece to each outside panel but do not put the paper against the fold--this will cause bulk and the card will not close properly.
For the center panels, you'll need to trace where the notches are. Cut out and adhere:
Here's what it should look like with the card:
I also found that this card can be used on layouts and mini albums for tags. Just put a tag in the middle panel and journaling spots on either side or leave as is for photos. That is what I plan to do for my next mini.
Have Fun and Have a wonderful Monday!
