Easy Gift folder

Hello everyone! Happy Friday to you all. It is Kylie here with a tutorial for you to make a very easy Gift folder.

First, gather your supplies... You will need:

Taking your first piece of 12 x 12 Cardstock, score it in half at 6 inches

Turn this cardstock 90 degrees, and score it at 6 1/2 inches

Your cardstock sheet will look like this:

Fold the cardstock in half at the 6 inch score, and place this in your paper trimmer, and cut diagonally from the score intersection back to the corner edge of the cardstock of the shorter 5 1/2 inch section

When opened out, your cardstock should look like this with the two rectangle sections at the top measuring 6 x 6 1/2 inches and two triangle pieces at the bottom measuring 6 x 5 1/2 inches.

Apply some extra tack adhesive tape to the sides of the triangle ends

Cut two Magical Tags from your coordinating cardstock and trim one of those tags about half way along. Then attach this half tag to the edge of your right side rectangle section half way along the edge. I trim the tag so that it doesn't interfere with the card when it is inserted later on.

And then remove the backing tape from the adhesive tape and stick the triangle sections to the rectangle sections lining up your edges carefully

Decorate the inside of your folder, keeping in mind that you don't want it to be too bulky as you need to be able to insert your card and gift and close the folder

Then create a topper for your folder and decorate it making sure to attach your other Magical Tag to the side of the topper exactly in line with the tag below

From you second sheet of cardstock, cut it at 5 1/2 inches and score at 6 inches so you have a card measuring 5 1/2 x 6 inches that will fit neatly inside your folder. Decorate this card to match your folder cover, but again ensuring that you don't have extra bulky embellishments that will hinder the folder closing neatly.

Stamp your "Seasons Greetings" frame onto white cardstock, than add your sentiment from your "General Sayings" set and line up your clear die guide and mark the small dots, align the die and cut out your sentiment.

And here is the finished card and folder and the inside of the folder with some yummy caffeine goodies.

These folders also make cute covers for sending stash out to your crafty friends! I hope you find this tutorial useful and have a wonderful weekend!
