        Envelope Punch Board File Folder Gift Card Holder Tutorial

C    Crumb Cake dimensions: 4 3/4" x 5", scored at 2 1/4 along the 5" side. This will make the front flap of your file folder narrower than the back flap.

       Adhere 2 1/4" x 4 3/4" piece of Season of Style Designer Paper on corresponding flap with SNAIL.

       Adhere Season of Style Designer Washi tape to the opposite flap.

       1. Line up the left corner of the paper with the left edge of the Envelope Punch Board punch as shown.

            Punch once to start the curve of the folder tab.


      2. Slide paper over to the 2 inch mark and punch again.


      3. Line up the center of the punched "valley" with the trimmer blade track. Cut up from the center to the

          top of the paper as shown.


      4. Smooth out any rough edges with your fingernail or Paper Snips.


      5. Repeat these steps for the back flap of folder, turning the paper over so you will be punching the

          opposite end.


      6. Round remaining corners of the file folder with the corner-rounder punch of the outside edge of

          the punch board.


      7. This is your file folder card open and flat;




     1. Wrap right end of ribbon over left end. Pull left end up and right end down tightly (this is the beginning of the phrase you have probably hear before " right over left, left over right ...")


    2. Bring top ribbon end down over bottom ribbon end as shown:

    3. Wrap top end down and around bottom end as shown. Pull top end through

         the loop you created. Pull ends tightly.


      4. Trim ends at an angle with Craft Scissors.


     That's all for now! Later than normal, but hopefully worth the wait!
