Happy Birthday Card Holder

Happy Wednesday everyone! It is raining here today but we need rain once in awhile.

Today I'm showing you a card holder that holds 4 cards and envelopes. It is a nice holder to give as gifts. I'm using up my retired designer series papers which I've been hoarding for a long time to make this holder and cards. Got to use up all the old DSP so I can get new ones.

How to make this card holder:

-8 1/2" x 10" piece of cardstock for cover

-With the 11" side going across the top, score it at 5 1/4" and 5 3/4"
-With the 8 1/2" side going across the top, score it at 6" and 6 1/4"

-5 1/2" x 4 3/4" piece of cardstock for cover
-5 1/4" x 4 1/2" piece of designer series paper for cover
-two 2" x 5" pieces of designer series paper for inside pockets
-17" of ribbon
-2 brads to hold the pocket

Start with Cover and fold on all score lines. Cut on the 5 1/4" and 5 3/4" score lines from the bottom up to the 6" score line and trim off the tab in between to create the inside pockets. Use brads to hold the pockets in place. Wrap ribbon around the holder in line with the brads and adhere a glue dot to back of the brad and place ribbon over the brad to hide it.

Enjoy and have a great day!

Happy Stamping!

LOVE IT!!! That paper ROCKS!!! I know what you mean about hoarding the paper...I think of it as a "collection"! If someone asks if I collect anything I say - "Designer Paper"!!!
