Package Gift Card Holder

Hello everyone!  I went to my Rapid Stampers Stamp Club meeting last night and made this great little gift card holder.  Isn't it adorable?
Here's the inside (you just flip open the lid)

The red square in the middle is what the gift card is attached to.  You could also add money or any other flat or semi flat object to it.  This pattern would also be great for birthdays.  I love the bow.  I don't have the complete tutorial for this yet, but I can tell you how to make the ovals for the bow.  Using the SU small oval  punch, you punch out an oval.  Next, you take the same paper containing the oval hole and use the medium SU oval punch.  You center the medium punch over the hole and punch.  Voila!  You get one piece of the bow! Make as many as you want!

As soon as I get the tutorial from my up-line, I'll be sure to post it for you.  I can tell you these little tidbits:
 - base card dimensions:  cut 8"x4" strip. On the 8" side score @ 4" for a 4x4 card.
 - lid:  cut 3" x 4 1/4" strip. Score on the 3" side @ 1 1/2" for fold
 - bows loops were added using a brad.
 - When attaching bow loops to card adjust them so that the whole "package" will fit in a standard A2 envelope (4 1/4 x 5 1/2)
 - Velcro tabs were used to secure flap of lid.

That's it for me.  Again, I will post the complete tutorial once I get it!
