Gift Card Holder

OK - here goes... (keep in mind I'm winging this - any advice would be appreciated)

Start with a 12X12 piece of 2 sided designer paper. You need to score at 1/2", 3", 6", 9" and 11 1/2". Turn your paper the other direction and score at 3 3/4" and 8 1/2". Fold in the two 1/2" sections and then fold in the corners to the next fold line. Crease all folds really well with bone folder. (Should look like the first picture)

Now fold the 2 dog-eared sections in, turn over and fold bottom part up. Crease again with bone folder. (picture 2)

Fold the top section down and fit it INTO the bottom section. (pic 3) Yes, crease again.

Fold in half and crease. Open it back up and you can easily slide a ribbon through the middle opening. Fold again and tie the ribbon to hold it closed. Add any extra embellishments on top, but if you use the designer paper you won't need much! So, clear as mud? Let me know. : )
