Father’s Day Gift Card / Money Pocket

Father’s Day is just around the corner and today I have a quick and easy card to make with a pocket inside for a gift card, check, or plain ol’ cash!

My friend, Val Stangle, made some awesome cards here.  I just slightly altered her measurements to make mine a 4 1/4″ square card.  She tucked money inside but mine will hold a gift card to Bass Pro…my FIL loves to fish!

The card is very simple and super quick to make with the Scor-Pal and some Scor-Tape.  It took me longer to find the corner punch I wanted to use on the sailboat image than it did to make the whole card.  lol.

To start, score a 4 ¼ x 11 piece of cardstock at 4 ¼ and 8 ½.  The small flap will attach to the inside and become your pocket.  (You can turn the card so the pocket will be on the left or the right side…or the bottom!)

Next, punch a half circle on the end of the small flap.  Place double sided tape on the top and bottom sides of the flap.  Adhere flap to the inside of the card.  The finished card size is a 4 ¼” square.  Here’s the inside.

Note:  instead of having a square flap with a half circle punched out, try cutting the flap on a diagonal, from corner to corner.  Only one side needs to be adhered with Scor-Tape.  You can easily create a patterned paper layer for the triangular flap by cutting a 2 1/4 x 3 3/4 piece of paper diagonally, corner to corner.

I really like the sentiment…so true!  Have an awesome day!
