Unfold the sheet to its original position.
Now, you should glue the sheets of paper together, following the instructions shown in images below.
To do this, apply glue as shown in the images below and glue the sheets to each other.
Cut out a paper strip measuring 21 by 2 cm and glue it at the crease of the card.
Cut out a paper strip measuring 2 by 10 cm.
Make marks at a distance of 5 mm from the left and right edges of the strip.
Draw lines connecting the corners of the strip to the marks you have just made.
Trim the corners of the strip along the drawn lines and fold it as shown in the images below.
Prepare small pieces of double-sided duct tape, stick them on both sides of the folded strip, and remove the protective paper layer from the tape.
Glue the adjacent strips of the sheet to each other using the previously prepared paper piece.
Prepare 8 similarly folded paper pieces.
Glue the paper strips to each other in the same way as shown earlier.
Do the same action with the remaining paper strips.
Tape them to each other in the same way as shown earlier.
Cut a strip of double-sided duct tape and stick it in the specified location on the top edge of the paper. Peel off the protective layer of the tape, then close the gift card and firmly press the paper together.
