December YouTube Videos and Instructions

All occasion and Christmas cards.  Gift card holders

The images below correspond with the YouTube videos you should see to the right of my blog under Creative Crafter videos.  If you do not see them you can view them on your YouTube search .
These card holding folders are 3 of 6 created for a bazaar.
Some have ribbon closings and others left open.
The Card stock can be plain and embellished as you wish after completing
the completing the pocket holder.
Each folder is made from one 8 1/2 X 11" sheet of Card Stock.  The heavier weight CS works best
but standard 65 lb.  will do fine as well.
Using you score tools score (from top to bottom) on the 8 1/2" side at 3/4", 5 1/4", 5 3/4" and 10 1/4"
Flip CS to the 11" side and score (top to bottom) @ 2" and 2 1/4" .
To help not make mistakes Cut from the outside edge on each side to the 3/4" score line and from the 11" outside edge to the 2 1/4" line.  Now score your last (Pocket) lines on both edges the 11" side at 1/2".
Zoom in on the photo above to get a close up if this confuses you.
If you want a ribbon closure make a small slit in your side fold to feed your ribbon through.  apply adhesive (I use score tape for its strength) to the top 3/4" score lines first, fold with your scor bone tool (securing the ribbon ties).
Score the remainder of the score lines, apply adhesive and fold in place.
If you wish you can round the inside pocket edge to give a finished look.

 These are other card examples From 2 other folders. These make a great friend/teacher's gift for any occasion. I'd love to see a photo of your completed folder and cards when yours are completed.

 The Following are the dimensions for creating more than 15  cards from just 3 12X12 sheets of card stock. The instructions and the patterns below are taken from the Close To My Heart Christmas 2012 workshop.
