Be of Good Cheer Paper Gift Card Holder...

Here is a cute card which also is a gift card holder - perfect for Christmas!  It is very easy to make with just a few score lines using the Simply Scored.

 Here's what you need to make this card:
  • Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper
  • Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler & Very Vanilla cardstock
  • Cherry Cobbler classic ink and Gumball Green and Cherry Cobbler Markers
  • Jolly Bingo Bits and Petite Pairs stamp sets
  • Simply Scored
  • Diagonal Plate for Simply Scored
  • Scallop Circle Punch
  • Small Scallop Circle Punch
  • 1 1/4" Circle Punch
  • 1/4" Circle Punch
  • Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding ribbon, Gumball Green Stitched Satin ribbon and Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine
Here's the backside of the card and the gift card holder.  I used the slot punch which is retired to attach the gift card although you could use a temporary tape on it to hold it to the cardstock.
Here's how to make this card:
  1. Cut a piece of DSP down to 8" x 8".
  2. Place it in your Simply Scored with the diagonal plate.
  3. Score from the top left corner down to the bottom right corner.
  4. Without moving the paper, score diagonally at 1 1/4"
  5. Flip the paper over, keeping the corner score line in the same place.
  6. Score again at 1 1/4".  You will now have three parallel score lines.
  7. Now turn your paper 90 degrees so the bottom left and the top right corners have the score lines.
  8. Score at 2 3/4".
  9. Flip the paper 180 degrees so the other non-scored corner is in the top left.
  10. Score at 2 3/4".
  11. Fold along the three score lines so they make a mountain in the middle with valleys on both sides.
  12. Open the paper back up and fold both of the 2 1/2" score lines to the inside.
  13. Fold back up along the three score lines.
  14. Hold the paper together at the top corners and punch a hole using the 1/4" circle punch.
  15. Insert ribbons through hole and hold together with Baker's Twine.
