Use the scoring board and/or tools to score the cardstock as indicated in the
diagram. First you will score at the 5” mark straight down, creating the center fold of the card. Next, you will be scoring at the 1”, 2” 3 ½” and 7 ½” marks.
Place the scored card on the paper trimmer with the 5” edge along the top and the scored side 4” in from the cutting edge. Align the trimmer blade so that you can just cut a vertical slit between the 1” and 7 ½” score lines.
Fold up the scored side of the card, accordion style, to resemble the pictured sample.
Take the 2”x 3” cardstock and on one 3” edge, use the 1” circle punch to make a half circle in the center. This cut-out makes it easier to pull the gift card out. Place double stick tape along the other three edges. Place the pocket inside of the card on the unfolded side and tape in place.
Embellish the card as you desire using stickers or stamped images, etc. Place the gift card in the pocket and you’re done!
