Quick and Easy Christmas Projects Day 3

Hi everyone.  Christmas will be here before we know it.  The last six years I've blogged about last minute Christmas ideas you could make in under 60 minutes.  Well, it's that time again and I've got some new projects to share.

Today, I'm sharing some really quick and easy gift card holders.  These are really easy to create, and if you use a sturdy double sided cardstock, it's already decorated!  I used Graphic 45's Joy to the World Collection.

Start by cutting pattern paper 5" x 9 3/4".
With the long side at the top edge of the Scor-Pal, score at 1 3/4", 4 1/2", 5 3/4" and 7".
You can get 2 gift card holders from one sheet of 12" x 12" of paper.

Fold on the first and last score lines, then create the mountain fold with the middle scored lines.  Use the Scor-tool to burnish the fold lines.

Turn the piece over and add Scor-Tape along the middle section, being sure to add Scor-Tape to what will be the bottom of the holder.  The Stacker is perfect for this as it holds your tape while you  have both hands free to place the tape.

Once the middle section is adhered together along the bottom edge, use an oval punch or die to create the opening.  If necessary, carefully cut along the fold so your gift card will fit. 

Wrap the gift card holders with ribbon, and add a phrase.
