Small folder for A2 cards and Blog hop!!!

Hi everyone here is a A2 card folder I made. I made this so I could give A2 cards as a gifts or to hold coupons etc .
Here is a tutorial on how I made it. Cut a piece of cardstock 6 inches by 12 inches. Score at 4 1/4, 4 1/2, 8 3/4 and 9 inches. Then fold on all score lines.
When it is folded. It should look like this.
I used the MS deep edge flower bed punch on the flap of folder.
I cut (2) pieces of white cardstock 4 inches by 8 1/2 inches for the sides of folder. Score the (2) pieces of cardstock every 1/2 inches all the way to end. Then fold on all the score lines.
When folded the (2) pieces should look like this. Adhere these (2) pieces inside of folder on each end.
It should look like this. When sides are adhered.
I took the Crop A Dile to punch a 1/8 inch hole and set 1/8 inch eyelet. I tied a 6 1/2 inches of round elastic cord inside of eyelet. This will help keep folder closed. It's not perfect, but I like it. The folder size is 6 inches wide by 4 1/4 inches height.
For this project I used:
(1) 6 by 12 inch card stock. The card stock is Martha Stewart (Bright paper).
(1) Eyelet.
(1) 6 1/2 inch of round elastic cord.
(2)cut pieces of 4 inch by 8 1/2 inch of cardstock
Crop- A- Dile II Big Bite to punch holes and set eyelet.
Martha Stewart (scoring board).
Martha Stewart Deep edge punch (flower bed).
Provo craft paper trimmer to trim paper.
