Gift Card Holder

Hey there. I hope everyone had a great Christmas. I just wanted to show you guys a gift card holder that I made for my brother. He's one of those people that only wants outrageously expensive gifts, that he's very specifically picked out. Mmm, yeah. So, he got this instead. I got this idea from Patty Bennett's blog and I just love this version. It's an open-ended envelope folded in half to give you a 3x3 card. And I had to use one of my favorite color combinations, Baja Breeze & Chocolate Chip. (ok, you got me. pretty much any color I love paired with chocolate chip is a favorite color combination.) Same papers on the inside and out, just reversed the layers.

Just one note should you decide to copy this idea. Please don't be a dork and put it together backwards. Yeah, I really wanted the pullout to be on the right side. Before I put the papers on the outside of the envelope I actually checked myself and was all, "Phew! That was close! I almost did it backwards!" And somehow, it still came out backwards. I really have no idea how that happened or what I was thinking. And I couldn't just fake it and flip it around, cuz the brads were attached to the paper before I covered the envelope, and they would have been on the back. Um, yeah. Loser. Anyways, do people really care about this when you're giving them money? I say no.

Ya gotta love the color combination, and I love the whole design idea. But, like Kaleb, I am completely baffled how this goes together or how it works or how you did it. So if it's "backward" to you, it's still a mind twister.

That is really cool! Love the design and who cares if it's backward. Maybe not to someone who's left-handed...???
