On the 11th day of Christmas .......

Shelly's Images gave to me.....a super easy tutorial to make a simple tag holder card!

(Please remember that our challenge that began last Thursday is a two week challenge.)

Please enjoy this freebie tutorial and send all of your friends in right away to enjoy a special gift from us.

How often have you received a card containing a gift card in the folder and envelope from the store?
How often have you received an envelope containing only money with the greeting hurriedly scribbled on the outside?
I have created a card that will remain a treasured keepsake, undamaged, once the gift card or money is removed. There is a separate tag with a little envelope behind the card, which also serves to hold the card closed.

Here is how it's done:


Use double sided cardstock and cut a sheet (landscape orientation) 7½ inches by 10 inches
The horizontal fold is a mountain fold 5 inches from the top
The vertical folds are valley folds 2½ inches in from the left hand edge and 2½ inches from the right hand edge
Cut off the triangle from the bottom left and bottom right hand corners.
Fold it into the card shape and it should look like this:

Decorate the inside and outside of your card.

Create a tag and paste a small envelope to the back in which you can put your gift card, atc or a folded bank note or two

Place the tag in the front of the card to finish off your fabulous creation!

That wasn't too difficult, was it?
