Pretty Petites gift card holder

This cute little gift card holder uses 1/2 sheet of  A4 CS & 2 pieces of DSP that measure 7 x 10cm to decorate the front & inside.
Fold your CS in 1/2 as you would a std card then open & fold in 1/2 again the other way so you end up with 4 rectagles.

Fold the card in half (folded edge is along the bottom) & cut a triangle 2 layers of CS at once as shown in pic.


Place cut off triangle piece folded in the embossing folder, & run through the bigshot with no tabs.
Tip: Trim the longest edge of the triangle a little prior to embossing or you will have to trim all 3 points to fit nicely as pockets in the holder later.
Apply sticky strip to the 2 edges shown in pic below & adhere the triangle embossed piece so it is in place on the sticky strip then fold up the card holder & adhere to form the 2 pockets.

Adhere the DSP to the front, cut the other piece in half diagonally & adhere those to the inside.

Tie some ribbon/twine around the entire front piece to keep the middle triangle piece in place as it is only adhered with a small amount of sticky strip, it will also keep your gift card from falling out.

Decorate as desired. Holds a tea bag & note card nicely.
