    Using a ruler measure both length and width of your gift card. Mine measures 4" X 5-1/4". You will need to cut the card stock 8-3/4" X 5-1/4"

    Cut the card stock at 5-1/4" by 8-3/4". I doubled the width of the gift card and added the 3/4 inch to allow for folding and creating the tab to glue sides together.

    Using a scoring blade, you will score the longest size of the card stock, that is the 8-3/4" side.

    Lightly score at 4-1/8" and at 8-3/8"
