Gate Fold Cards

It seems as though I've been seeing gate fold cards everywhere lately, so I thought I would make that the focus of a set of cards I was crafting for a friend. There are a few different ways that you can "close" a gate fold card, two of which are pictured above. The first is using ribbon to tie the card, and the second is making a paper ring to slide over the card. In addition, you could attach a button to either side of the card and use string to make a figure eight around the buttons. This would work with large brads also. Or, you could stamp a large image, place it in the center of the card, only attaching it to on side. There are many, many options to explore with gate fold cards. I'd love to see pictures of what you create!
