paper and cut it in half 4 1/4" x 11
Score at 3 and 8. Flip the paper over and Score at 51/2
This is how you want to fold it. You can kinda make out in the picture that I placed some sticky strip tape on either side of the paper. I use sticky strip because it has a stronger bond for this project. You do not want it to fall a part when folks are reaching in to take their goodies out.
Now when you adhere the two sides together it will form this "T"
Here is where you will use the word window punch. It gives your project a nice professional look. At the top of the "T" slide the folded piece of paper in to the punch just like the picture shows. The punch is Strong enough to go through the fold.
This is what it will look like when you are done.
Now take the 3/4" punch and slide the punch into the open area and punch half of a circle. TIP this punch is not Strong enough to go through both pieces of paper. That is why I went in through the middle first.
Flip the paper over and you can see the half circle that was just punched. Line that up with the punch and punch out the remaining paper.
This is what it will look like.
TIP now is the time to make sure that the opening you punched will fit your gift card. Gift cards are a standard size so you can use a credit card to judge if it works or not. If not just line up your word window punch and punch just a little off the end.
Cash-o-la also works!
There you go, another way to make a gift card holder. Please let me know if you have any questions or email me a picture of your creation and I will post it here on my blog.
