There is nothing like a last minute gift, and gift cards are perfect. Today I'm going to share a simple project with you that will really take your gift cards to the next level.
Step 1: Cut a piece of card stock 4 1/2 x 10 inches and score at the 3 inch, 4 inch, 5 inch and 8 inch mark.
Step 2: Fold as shown below and use your Scor-Pal Tool to make the edges crisp.
Step 3: Round the corners on the outside edges
Step 4: Cut the following designer card stock pieces and corner round your end pieces
(4) 4 x 2 3/4
(2) 4 x 1 3/4
(2) 4 x 3/4
Note: this will decorate the outside and the interior of the wallet
Step 5: Flip your wallet over the the outside and apply a line of Scor-Pal Tape to the very bottom of the score line between the small peaks that are going to form where the gift card sits. Apply the to peaks together.
Step 6 : Flip back over to the interior and use a Spellbinders Die to line up just on the edges of the small pop up flap. This will make a slit for your card to sit in and when the wallet is opened the gift card will flip up. TIP: if the die doesn't cut all the way through just trim it up with scissors as the score line will be embossed enough.
Step 7: Slip your gift card in the open notch
Step 8 : Apply velcro tabs to the flap of you wallet to open and close. If you don't have velcro tabs you could easily use ribbon or twine to close the wallet.
Decorate your wallet as desired and give away with love!!!!

I made some quick and easy last minute gifts with Fancy Pants' Hopscotch papers (absolutely fun prints!) that would be perfect when you need a "little something" for a coworker or friend. The folded papers hold 2 cookies and one or two tea bags. I chose to add a teabag in one side and a little tag in the other to write a short note.
The original design is by Debi Pippin and can be found here. Another tutorial with pictures can be seen here. (In step 3 of that tutorial, ignore the 6" score as it must be a typo). I took a few photos along the way as well... Start with an 8 1/2 x 12 inch piece of double sided patterned paper. Using a Scor-Pal, score the 8 1/2 side @ 2 1/2 and 6.
Crease all scored lines and unfold. Next you will cut 2 rectangular sections from each corner (cut a 2 1/2" square from each corner) to look like this...
Fold the top and bottom in. They will overlap each other a bit. I added a bit of glue here but it's really not necessary.
When cutting the "tag shape" on the top, first fold the top flap down on each side. I added a bit of adhesive underneath. Then I measured 3/4" in from each end and made a mark.
Decorate and fill as desired. I used some adorable Magnolia Minis from the Magnolialicious store.
A view from the side... fill a 4x6 cello bag with 2 cookies, add a twist tie to the top, and insert so the baggie is between the ribbon tied at the top.
And here's the back... I added a tag but you could add a second teabag here. Some Fancy Pants stickers adorn the tags.
The buttons are also from the Fancy Pants Hopscotch line, as well as the "believe" banner and "peace" sticker.
