1 more sleep till Disney!!

I cannot wait for our vacation and it starts tomorrow! Many were concerned I would not finish my 12 Days of Christmas Inspiration (I was too) but I think I’ll make it by squeezing these last 3 days into posting all on the same day. 🙂

A few weeks ago, I made a matchbook card at my mil that was just precious.

I want to share one with you that is similar but smaller, the perfect size to hold a gift card.

Cut a piece of cardstock to 8 1/4″ x 11″. Score on short size at 1″, 4 3/4″, 5″. Turn to long side and cut in half at 5 1/2″.
Then cut that in half again at 2 3/4″. Cut the other half. So out of one piece of cardstock you end up with 4 of these holders.

Then fold on all the score lines. Staple short bottom flap in the middle at about 1/8″ from the bottom.

Cut some designer series paper at 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ and another piece at 2 1/2″ x 3/4″. Adhere to outside of matchbook.

A tied a bow on the top flap and will use that to hold my gift card in. Next cut a white piece at 2 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ for the inside. And here it is all put together.

I will insert the gift card on the upper flap under the ribbon and write a message on the white part. Super cute and easy to mass produce these and add that personal touch to a gift card!
