Stitched Stockings Treat and Gift Card Holder

I have told you every day how much fun I have had making this week's projects, but this one was really the funnest! I know, that's not a word, but you get the point... This amazing project is a card, a gift card holder and a treat holder all in one. Many thanks to my sweet friend Donna for directing me to this project, and big thanks to my fellow demonstrator Glenda for sharing the tutorial.  I already have several recipients in mind for this project, so I will be making more of these for sure. 

The new Simply Scored Scoring Tool makes assembly of the box a breeze. Inside are ten Designer Paper covered nuggets, yum! 

Open up the card atop the gift box and you will find, not only a greeting, but a gift card! What a perfect holiday gift. OK, so now you want to know how to make this... Here are the directions:

For tray, cut card stock 5" x 7 1/4". Score at 1/2" and 1 1/8" along all four sides. Trim the corners according to photo, above. Apply Sticky Strip along four edges, as shown where x's are. Crease along score lines, tuck in tabs, remove Sticky Strip and assemble.

For sleeve, cut card stock 5 1/8" x 7 5/8". Along the long side, score at 5/8" and 3 1/2". Turn 180 degrees and repeat. Adhere with Sticky Strip.

For card, cut card stock 4 3/4" x 7". Score at 2 3/8" and 4 3/4".  Cut a 2 1/2" corner out of the right side. Round that corner with a corner punch. Apply Sticky Strip and adhere.
