Last Minute Gift – Card Folio

For my post today, I’m sharing a quick and easy, yet impressive-looking card folio. This is great last minute gift. I’ve made mine using Christmas design paper, but you could use any designs for different ocassions.

I have used The Gift of Giving Collection for my creations.

You can fit around six cards in this card folio – three each side.


You will need a sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock to create your base. Cut and score as follows:

12″ x 8 1/2″

Score at (long side):  1/2″   5 3/4″   6 1/4″   11 1/2″

Turn your cardstock to the short side and score as follows:

2 1/4″   2 1/2″

Using the leftover cardstock, cut a piece that is 6″ x 3″

Score at (short side):  1/2″   1″   2 1/2″

To embellish your card folio you will need design paper as follows:

Four pieces for front, back, and inside cut at:  5″ x 5 7/8″

Two pieces for the side flaps:  1 1/4″ x 5 7/8″

Two pieces for the pockets:    5 2/8″ x 2 1/8″



I have made a video to show you how to make the folio. For the video, I have added ribbon for something a little different.

  1. Beautiful and a great idea. Years ago I made card folios similar to this. I gave them as graduation gifts along with postage stamps.
