Origami Gift Card Holders

I learned how to make these cute origami gift card holders by looking at a few tutorials then I combined what I liked best into some simple instructions.

 Start with a 7" x 10" piece of paper.  Fold in half lengthwise and widthwise:

Next fold each edge to the center...widthwise:

and lengthwise:

Open the paper up and fold each corner to the first fold line, as shown below:

Fold each long edge to center line: 

 Flip paper over and fold both ends to the center.  Cut a contrasting piece of paper measuring 
3-3/8" x 4-7/8" and fold in half.

Place the insert into the gift card holder, as shown below:

 To make a greeting...cut a piece measuring 2-1/4" x 3-1/4"
