Back to School at Craft Us Crazy!

The new challenge at Craft Us Crazy is Back to School!  Our sponsor for this challenge is Meljen's Designs.  I used the Back to School circle sentiment to create a teacher gift card holder.  Nothing like giving a little gift to say looking forward to a great year! 
This gift card holder is very easy to make:  Cut a piece of 81/2 x 11 paper in half lengthwise.  Then score and fold at 2 3/4 inch intervals.  Bring the middle sections together and glue or sew around the edges. 
 Die cut an opening large enough to slip in a gift card. 

Cute and easy!  Be sure to check out the Craft Us Crazy blog for all the prize and challenge details.  And, of course, to see the other DT projects.  Hope you're having a wonderful week!
