Tutorial Tuesday - Gift Card Holder

Welcome to Tutorial Tuesday at 2 Cute Ink! It's Judy here with you today and I am going to show you how to make a super easy (and quick) gift card holder.
What you will need:
One piece of double sided pattern paper cut to 4 x 7 1/2 inches. 
Paper scoring tool
Small circle punch
And of course, your favorite 2 Cute Ink image. 
Step 1: Score pattern paper at 1 1/2 inches and 4 1/2 inches.
  Step 2: Using a circle punch, punch a half cirlce notch on the edge of the paper, below the 1 1/2 inch score line. I used a 1 inch circle punch, but smaller or larger would work too.
Step 3: Apply adhesive to sides of the paper below the 1 1/2 inch fold line.  Keep in mind that your gift card will need to slide in this pocket, so only add adhesive to the very edges. 
Step 4: Fold the paper over and press it down. Now you have the pocket. 
Step 5: This is the most important step....don't forget to add the gift card! :-)

Wasn't that easy?  Now you can decorate the front any way you like. I used Happy Birthday Penguin and colored him up with Copic markers.  I am giving an itunes gift card in the picture, but I think a gift card to an ice cream shop would be perfect with Happy Birthday Penguin, don't you? 
Have a terrific Tuesday!
