Gift voucher folders

Hi everyone

Today I wanted to share with you an easy way to present vouchers, which are becoming a really popular gift option now!  We surprised our kids with a short cruise for Christmas, a last family holiday before Tom joins the Navy as an officer, and I made these folders to pop the boarding passes in!

Start with one 12x12 and fold at 7cm to create the top flap. 
Fold again 18.5cm from the top to create the pocket.  For these ones I folded it back on its self twice (1cm folds) so that you could see what was inside the envelope.
Add some double sided tape on the sides to seal the edges.

To create the belly bands, cut a strip of paper 30cm x 9cm and another strip in contrasting paper, 30cm x 5.5cm.  Stick the two together, wrap around the envelope and secure on itself with some more double sided tape, ensuring that it's not so tight that it cant slide on and off easily.  Embellish with a tag and some matching twine. 

I also made some of these using Christmas paper too!  You could try them for any occasion and with any embellishment!
