Beautiful Ride Beetle Gift Card Holder in A Box!

So here is the other version of the explosion box with its tutorial posted yesterday... 
Half my ladies did the boat...and the other half did the Beetle Gift Card Holder....
Everything was the same apart from that centre square... so go here for the main box tutorial (ignoring the For the Boat parts) - and here is the Gift Card holder bit...

1. Cut a piece of 13.2 x 6cm Bermuda Bay cardstock (5 1/4" x 2 1/4")
2. Score PORTRAIT every 1 cm (ie 54321) ( 3/8", 3/4", 1 1/8", 1 1/2", 1 7/8")
3. Concertina fold ( note-valleys on outer and central section)
4 Adhere outer sections on the back .... and about 1.5 cm (1/2") on inside from either side of central section
5. Cut squiggly paper square diagonally
6. Adhere diagonal to outer sections of the gift card holder
7. Trim at ends
8. Adhere to Bermuda Bay Square
