Matchbook gift card holder (Rachelle Green)

Matchbook gift card holder
by (Rachelle)

Start with a 4" x 11" piece of paper. Score 4 1/4" from one end and 1 1/2 from the other end. Fold as scored. With a standard punch, punch two holes 1 1/4" and 3/4" down from top on upper flap through all thicknesses. I use a template I made previously which speeds up an already fast process.

After folding matchbook, I used Simple Stories Homespun and Carta Bella "It's a Celebration" design paper. Add large eyelet into the punch holes. It holds the top of the matchbook secure which will also hold the lower portion of the matchbook in place. You can easily decorate the matchbook anyway you like.

I stamped the faces on the Helium Balloons (FRA-Die19-186) and then layered them together. I added the Tim Holtz Filmstrip Ribbon (ADV-TH-92028) as fun element. Last but not least I used the Happy Birthday Line (FRA-Die-09182). I use removable tape to adhere gift card or cash.

Try it. I'm sure you like it!
