I first created a top-folded 5x7 card and rounded the corners. I opened the card and cut two slits at the top fold to insert the ribbon, twine or cord (whichever you prefer) so you can hang it on the tree. I then cut a piece slightly smaller than the card from patterned paper to fit just inside the opened card. Then taking your gift card ( or in my case this junk Discover card) take a craft knife and measure to cut four slits into the patterned paper only where you can place your gift card. I then added just a small piece of Velcro at the top and bottom to make sure the card stays shut until the right time!
