Set this up by your craft table and let's start making my Surprise Gift Card!
First, you will need a piece of CS that measures 5 X 11. This needs to be scored on the long side at 4 1/4 and 8 1/2. You also need a piece of DSP that is 4 7/8 X 6 3/4. This one needs to be scored on the long side at 3 1/2. Choose a back and front side (if it is double sided). The one side is 1/4 inch shorter, and you need to draw a line at 6.5 inches from the end, like in the picture. Make sure you do this on the BACK SIDE!
You place the flat edge of the slot punch on the line, and punch above it. You need to punch twice, about an inch in from each side. Then cut 1/4 inch off each side up to the score line, as pictured above.
On the small flap of CS, you need to put some sticky strip. I had 1/4 wide , but I cut it in half with my craft knife right on the roll. Then fold it in to make a pocket. Take the DS, and add glue to the side that is NOT cut and punched.
Glue the DSP to the top of the card (not the pocket). DO NOT GLUE IT TO THE SCORE LINE!! You need to glue it about 1/8 of an inch down from the top (it should have an even border along the top and sides). It will be about 1/2 - 3/4 of an inch shy of the score line. You want it that way, and you will see why soon.
Tuck your gift card under the punch flap, then tuck the DSP with the card inside the pocket. Now, go ahead and close it...
The card will tuck inside the pocket, as you close the card. When the card is opened, it pulls the gift card out of the pocket - HOW COOL IS THAT!! I got the idea from another gift card, and had to figure out how it worked.
Have fun and happy stamping!!
