Card Folio Hostess Gifts - October

Check out these adorable card folios that I will be giving away to my hostesses this month (October)! I saw them demonstrated by Michelle Sturgeon at Stamping Palooza last weekend and just had to make them. They are SO easy to make!
Here are the measurements for the folio.

SCORING - 1-sheet of 8.5 x 11 cardstock
On the 11" side, score at 5.25" and 5.75"
  Turn cardstock and on the 8.5" side, score at
  2.25" and 2.5"

* On the 11" side cut out the rectangle piece
  (starts at 5 1/4' and goes 5 3/4"). You will cut
  out the middle up to the last horizontal score
  line. You will end up with what looks like
  Sponge Bob Square Pants.

Fold up on the 2.5" score line.
Fold up on the 2.25" score line.
This will create the 2 pockets that hold your cards
Fold in on the 2 vertical score lines - this creates the book.
Cut 2 pieces of DSP at 2" x 5" - adhere to inside pockets.
Using the piercing tool, pierce a hole at the top outside cornet of each pocket. Secure with a brad.
Cut a 24" piece of ribbon and adhere to the outside of the folio. Finish as desired.
