Gift Card Holder Handmade Butterflies ~ Les Papillions
Hello bloggers I hope you are well and enjoying the weekend. Today I have a card with a difference for you, it's a gift card holder or could also be used to gift actual money.

This gift card holder began as a 12x12 sheet of doubled sided card stock. I then cut it to 5" x 12". Next if you are using doubled sided paper with different patterns on you will need to decide what pattern you want as the main feature. I chose the butterflies, so with the butterflies facing down I marked 5" in from the left at the top and and 5" in from the right at the bottom. Now I scored from one mark to the other to create the first fold line. Reinforce the score line by burnishing it with an embossing tool. Next I scored from the bottom left hand corner diagonally to the top right hand corner, again folding and burnishing as I went.
Next I folded my card stock along the lines I had scored to make the gift card money holder. I then decorated it with a butterfly using Spellbinders 'les papillions' die set using some scraps of pink paper and pink mirror board. Once die cut I shaped them and layered them up before adding them to the front flap of the holder. I then used some more pink mirror board and Tattered Lace 'die block sentiments' dies to cut out 'happy birthday'. This was adhered to front of the card holder. I added a tag from my stash and put it in the front pocket leaving the inside pocket for money or a gift card.
