A "Handy" Gift to make and give

At the end of every school year, I make a little "thank you" gift for the school lead secretaries who have supported me throughout the school year. We are talking 30 schools, so it needed to be a quick, easy and inexpensive. Taking advantage of  Bath and Body Works Semi-Annual clearance sale and tweaking Dawn Griffith's pattern, I made these for the ladies and they were a huge hit. One can never have too much hand sanitizer. These are super-fast to make. Make extra to have a gift on hand for any occasion.

An 8-1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock will make four holders.  The Simply Scored tool makes this extremely easy. Place your "Place Markers" on the 1/2"; 1-1/2"; 3-3/4"; 4-3/4"; 8"; 9" score lines. My quick easy tip for this project is to score first cut second. Score your full sheet (11" side) and then cut the 8-1/2" in half at 4-1/4", then cut the 4-1/4" pieces in half at 2-1/8".
