Gift Card Project

Tonight we are Stampin' and Scrappin' so we picked a gift of cards for our card project tonight.
We received something similar as a door prize from our last gathering with SU demos from SCS. Of course we're still stuck on brown but no pink this time. These are super easy to make for gifts-quick and easy.
First you will need the following items: 1- 12"x 12" Chocolate Chip card stock (cut to 8 1/2" x 12") 3-8 1/2"x 11" Naturals Ivory card stock (cut to 5-A2 cards & 1-3" x 3"), 1-8 1/2" x 11" Cool Caribbean card stock, (2-3 1/2"x 5 1/2" & 1-3 1/4" x 3 1/4"), SU's Happy Harmony (Sell-A-Bration 2007) Chocolate Chip and Cool Caribbean classic ink, Taupe Grosgrain (grow-grain) ( ribbon (each piece is 8"), eyelets (2) and finally 5 Naturals Ivory medium envelopes. Cut the 12x12 card stock to 8 1/2" x 12" and score on the 12x 12 side 2 1/2" in (this makes the folder part the holds the cards and envelopes. Then score down the middle so that you have 6 inches on each side of the score mark. Fold all of the score marks. On the folder flap in the middle you will need to cut a narrow triangle to split each side. Lay your paper flat with the scored 2 1/2" section closest to you, measure 1/2" on either side of the middle score line and draw an angle up to the 2 1/2" score line to make a narrow triangle. Cut this piece out. Now its time to glue in the back panels of Cool Caribbean (3 1/2" x 5 1/2" pieces). Then you only need to glue outer edge to hold the folder flap closed (use Tombo Mono Multi). Make your eyelet holes and place your eyelets 3" from the top and inset between 1/4" & 1/2". All that's left is to design your cards and envelopes. You can put this wonderful gift in a cellophane baggy and tie with ribbon.
(A2 card is a standard card size - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2")
