Christmas Stampin' All Year Long

 It's the first Friday of Summer vacation and I'm soooo looking forward to sleeping in!  It's also challenge day over at CSAYL and our fabulous sponsor this week is none other than PINK CAT STUDIO.  There are 5 free digis up for grabs, so be sure to play along!

Our challenge this week is called "A Little Something From Me to You".
Create a gift card holder.
You can make up your own design or use a favorite tutorial.

Here's what I came up with using an image called "Lily and Tweet in Presents".

The finished project measures 5" x 5" and only took minutes to make.

Start with a 10" square of cardstock and score at 2 1/2" and 7 1/2".  Then rotate ninety degrees and score again at the same measurements.
Cut off the four corners and pre-fold on your score lines.
Without using any adhesive,
fold down the top section as shown.
Then repeat with the right side.
And the bottom.
And finally the left side.
To hold your packet closed, fold the top part of the left panel underneath the first fold that you made.
Clear as mud?
Then decorate each section with a 2" square of patterned paper.
When you open all of the folds, the inside will measure just under a 5" square.  This leaves loads of room to decorate your little heart out and insert a gift card.  Thanks for stopping by (sometimes I wonder if anyone ever does).  Be sure to hop on over to the CSAYL blog to see some awesome samples from the dt and our guest designer!

I peep in all the time. Love your cards and your "cabana boy" headings when you travel. Your children are lucky you make such nice gifts for their friends and teachers.
