Great Tutorial--I need a "larger version" of this for cards that are oddly sized--6x6 and 8 1/4 x 3 1/2...Does anyone know how to apply this project to a larger size?

Thank you so much for this project. I was thinking of making sets of cards for Christmas gifts but was not sure how to present them. This is perfect!

I was just wondering what size punch did you use for the corner punch and where did you get your tag punch? Love this idea with the card pouch and it has given me some ideas and it looks easy to make and hopefully it is. But, I do have the video to fall back on so that is a plus. Thank you for the inspiration! =)
