Whoever the brilliant person was who came up with this idea, I bow to you most humbly and in awe. I love it! I am making them by the dozens! This one is for a former customer/friend who was kind enough to jump through hoops for me. I hope the Post office doesn't Smoosh it!
Also credit to those whose ideas I've cased and combined into this particular creation. None of these ideas are my own on their own. Just the end result.

Okay folks, I have looked and looked to try and find the original owner of the idea because they had a great PDF doc that has the instructions with pictures. If you know who you are, please help us out and post it again!
Otherwise you all are stuck with my version.
Cardstock: 4 x 2
crystal effects or other strong bonding agent
Fold the 4x2"cardstock to make a 2 x2 square. With the fold at the top, line up the punch so the fold is about 1/8th inch under the top of the punch.(You want to fold to stay, not get punched off.) Stamp if desired either before or after you punch. When you have your folding tag, you punch the hole at the top for the ribbon, then attatch the magnets inside, with the bonding agent, one on each flap. I like to attract the magnets together first so they dont oppose when you try and close it. Let set, Then decorate. I made asmall pocket card to hold mine, that was 6 x 3 folded to make 3x3 then 1" fold down to make the flap. The corners are rounded and the pocket is held together with the ribbon. This is the short sweet summary. Feel free to ak questions and I will answer as best I can. And Again if anyone knows who posted the orignal or good instructions please share! The document said bbutler in the author description if that helps.

Nice soft colors... I think i like the inked ribbon the best... what a great idea. For some reason I look at some stuff and just miss all the little possibilities. That's one reason I love this site-- I see alot of great new ways to use stuff I already have and them have something new! Thanks for sharing this great card-- I really love it!
