Fold sides in so that the spaces marked A and B in the previous picture match up. The corner spaces at the sides should match up with the ch-1 sps on either side of the flat corner. Use stitch markers or safety pins to hold corners in place. Place gift card into pouch and make sure it fits. If it doesn’t, adjust folds until it does.
