Gift Card Holder

At Marie's workshop last night, kindly hosted by Jodi we made a gift card holder that Marie wanted to make.  She also requested the bird punch so I incorporated the two and came up with this. 

Here are the instructions I promised everyone.  Cut your card stock 4 1/4 x 11", score 3" in from each end and also in the middle at 5 1/2".  Fold this so that you end up having a "W" shape and then you will see where you need to put your double sided tape or glue and where you will need to cut the opening for the gift card.  Remember to put your adhesive on the edges so you can still slide the gift card in.  Punch or cut slot large enough to fit the gift card.  In this case I used the word window punch and the circle punch.  After you have created the card you can design the front however you like.  Just remember that the ribbon to hold it together should be put on before you adhere your layer or images.

Oh and if you really want to have fun.........cut out the circle but not the slot, then put the gift card in the other end and watch the recipient try to get it out!  I can't remember who said that last night but it would be fun to watch.
