Peppermint Twist

Happy Wednesday crafty people!
Today is challenge day over at the Inky Impressions Challenge Blog and this will be my last project as an Inky team member.  The challenge today is called "Peppermint Twist" and we want to see how you interpret it onto your holiday card or project. 
Got any red and white striped twine? 
Cute candy embellishments?
How about a fun candy cane image?
I decided to use some cute candy themed patterned paper and make a 4" x 4" gift card holder.
Here's a peek at the inside...
The best part about this project is that it's QUICK and EASY. 
(My two favorite words when it comes to crafting) 
You can get three of these babies out of one 12" square of cardstock!

Here's how to make one...
Cut cardstock to 4" x 12" and score at 4" and 8".
This will leave you with three 4" sections.

Next, score the middle section diagonally, starting from the top left corner and ending at the bottom right corner.

Fold on the middle score line and this is what you'll have.

Next, fold over the right section as shown and adhere.

Then fold up the bottom square behind the diagonal fold.

Now you have a pocket. 
Adhere where needed, being sure to leave room in the pocket for your gift card.  Then embellish your little heart out and make someones day!
