How to make a Toilet paper roll Good OL Sport gift card holder with stand

Hi everyone :-)
Here is a tutorial on this toilet paper roll gift card made with the beautiful and colorful Good OL Sport collection from Graphic 45.
  Graphic 45 DT project
Picture of the finish card front.

Card slides out from each side and here is a pocket for a gift card picture or a congrats note.

 Without the card.

Back side.

 There is a stand on the backside so the card can stand by it self

This card can also be made in a more feminine style and here is a link to my video tutorial on how to make it,

Press a toilet paper roll flat ( wet it a bit and lay something heavy over for a day)
Cut it in 2 even parts and paint around.
Inside: Cut 2 1/4 x 4 but here you have to measure your paper roll. mine is 4 1/4 x 2 5/8.
Glue on seam binding on each side.

Glue on front paper and if you want a pocket score and glue the hinge under decor paper.
Glue down the pocket sides.Also cut out a football and glued it on the left side.

Stand: Cut and score as show on the picture.

Fold, glue and cut of x

glue o the backside of the card and put on decor paper on each side.

Pull the card through the roll so 1/4 inch is inside and fasten the seambinding.

Do the same on the other side and pull the stand inside. Glue paper on the paper roll ends.

Some suggestions what to use.

I used Vintage photo, Black soot and also aged mahogany distress ink.
3D foam dots on the go team. Also cut out a tiny football.

On the front
Distressed twine and wrapped it around. Fussy cut out some images and popped up Big score that I first glued on black paper to give it some depth. 

Supply list,
Good Ol Sport 12 x 12 paper collection, Scor buddy and tape, glue,black cardstock. Distress ink,3D foam, twine and stamp tool.
