Gift Card holder for Christmas ...

This is what it looks like finished
here we have our 8 1/2 X 4" sheet . Score 3 1/2 " from each side and then 1 1/2" inbetween those two lines(so you end up w/ 3 score lines total. Fold it accordion style. Then i took my library card, traced just the tip of it and cut out w/ a scissors. Then punch a 1/2" circle w/ your 1/2" circle punch for a cute tab.
When you seal the bottom of your pocket to house your gift card make sure you only tape the corners or just put a wee bit of sticky strip along the very bottom... you have to allow room for your card to slide in the pocket!
I used the Jumbo wheel bold snowflakes to roll along the front and back using tone on tone in this case elegant eggplant. The old olive belly band holds it all together w/ the ornament punched out from the stamp set definitely decorative(In the xmas mini RIGHT now)! For the belly band I just took 1"X8 1/2" strip and fold it around and taped on the back side, you will have to snip a bit of your extra off... and then this slides on and off for easy opening! Enjoy!
