I wanted to make a couple of gift card holders and was inspired by this one from Sue Bayliss that looks like a gift box and the faux bow is cute. I have kept the same gift box look, but I have constructed the inside differently as I wanted to have somewhere to write as well. The Jolly Holiday DSP and matching Cherry Cobbler cardstock give a really bold look, so I kept the decoration simple. Here is the closed up view - the finished dimensions (excluding the faux bow) are 5" x 4 1/2".
This is the magnetic closing - they are really thin - not more than the thickness of a dimensional when closed and they open really easily, so there is no pressure on the cardstock.
