Tent Topper Gift Cards

While at convention I received a great Tent Topper Gift card holder from Rhonda Beadell using the new Three for you Punch Box. I decided to use Rhonda's card for my inspiration in creating these great Tent Topper Gift Cards using Fast and Fun Notes for a customers party tonight....

The base of the card is 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" (when scored it measures 2 3/4" x 4 1/4")








View opened



To make the score marks to hold your gift card properly, simply place the gift card - centered in the bottom portion of the card - draw a line with your bone folder on each side of the gift card













I drew lines on the back side of my punch with a sharpie marker marking the middle and side center's of the punch (indicated by the notches on the punch). Place the punch into your card stock (punch side up) - match the black line with the line you drew with the bone folder and punch - repeat for the other side. This gives you the perfect spacing to add your gift card.






ETA - Here's a few samples to help answer the following question:


"How do you get an envelope to fit them??? Do you just make it yourself or what?? "



As you can see by the photos - the actually do fit in the standard sized envelopes - you can leave them folded or open them up (it's the same size as a card front - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" when fully opened).
