Gift Card Holder

I have a really easy tutorial for a gift card holder using 
BASIC GREY's
new "B-Side" collection and embellishments.

  This only takes a few minutes to whip together, so make several to have on-hand!

 First, cut your favorite pattern of “B Side” paper to 4 1/8” X 12”. 
 Place the paper horizontally onto a scoring board.  
Score at 2.5, 3.5, 4.5, 5.5, 6.5 and 9.5 inches.

 Fold along the lines in the above fashion.

 Turn the paper over so that inside pattern is facing down.  Place a high tack adhesive tape along both sides of the 4.5” score line.  Tape each piece to the opposite side.


 Turn the paper back over so that the inside pattern is facing up. 
Place a small piece of high tack adhesive tape along the two edges of the
 tabs as shown above.  You now have a secure slot/pocket for any standard gift card!

If you would like to add a tab closure to the front: 
Use a 1” round die and tape it to the top of a piece of ship board so that only
 HALF of the die is exposed to the paper.  Secure to the bottom edge of the
 flap with washi tape and die-cut. 

Corner round the edges of the front flap if you wish.  Decorate with various
 embellishments from the collection and it’s ready for giving!
