Step 4: Add the Squash Folds

Now take the top flap and squash fold. Repeat on the other side.

Step 5: Folding... Again

Take the outer flap created from the squash fold and fold on top of the other flap. Repeat on the other side.

Step 6: Create Mini-folds

Open up the paper, but not completely, just enough you see the two folds created from the squash fold on the outside. Repeat in the other side. Now take the top flap and fold it in until the top meets the fold line created from opening the paper. Repeat on the other side. Then close the paper back and repeat on other side.

Step 7: Finishing the Cardholder

Take only one of the big flaps (there should be only two... separated by a fold in the middle... also the fold that makes the space for the cards) and fold it hot-dog style. Then you are finished! Adjust and/or write your name on the back flap (to use dual job) as needed.
