I have a fun Video Tutorial for you today!! See below for the Note Card Holder Video!
I saw this fun project on Di Barnes blog and wanted to give it a try. It uses one 12x12 sheet of cardstock, you measure, score and fold and you get this adorable little folder to put whatever you want inside... photos, gift cards, note cards, tickets, Project Life cards.. you name it!
So I made this one using her instructions and the Season of Cheer 12x12 paper:
I made a tag with the Christmas Cuties stamped image that I colored with my Copic Markers.
I wanted to fill it with note cards, but it only really holds 2 note cards:
So, you can watch the video below and see how I made the holder a little differently to hold 4 note cards with envelopes!
If you are unable to view the video, watch it HERE on my YouTube channel.
I decorated the note cards with some Season of Cheer paper and stamped snowflakes from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set.
I wanted a holder just like this but with "thickness" to it so that it would hold a set of 4 note cards.. so, I adapted Di's instructions and instead of the score mark at 6", I scored at 5-3/4" and 6-1/4".. that gave it a 1/2" thickness!! Voila!! :)
Check out Di's blog post and download her instructions HERE and then you'll see what I mean about scoring it in 2 places instead of at 6". I also explain it in the video above.
You can see the "thickness" in the photo above.. that is how I altered my version of this project.
Isn't that little reindeer and tree too cute?? It was actually a sweet little 3x3 card from Eva Davalos and I mounted it onto my note card holder!!! :)
So now the holder easily holds 4 note cards and 4 envelopes!
Who are YOU going to make one for!?
Above: this holder is created using the Home for Christmas paper from pg 9 of the Holiday catalog, and stamped with the Santa's Gifts stamp set, pg 68 in the Annual Catalog.
(all supplies shown below in the online shopping guide)
Below: this holder is created using the Season of Cheer paper from pg 29 of the Holiday catalog, and stamped with the Reason for the Season stamp set, pg 31 of the Holiday catalog.
For the sets of 4 note cards in each holder, I used the Stampin' UP! Thick Whisper White note card pack and decorated them with 2" wide strips of designer paper, punched out gold stars, metallic doilies and stamped greetings. All supplies may be purchased by clicking the photo links at the bottom of this post.
I'm just in love with this darling holder. I think it will make terrific teacher gifts, treats for employees at a bank, post office, beauty salon, co-workers, etc.! Create them for any time of year! See ALL of the patterns of 12x12 designer paper available from Stampn' UP! here!

What a great idea. It went together so easy and looks so cute. I used your version and love the extra space for cards. It will make great little gifts for my Bible Study group and other too.

I love how you've added depth to the folder, Patty. Such a simple change, but brilliant & offers so many possibilities. It means a lot to me that you shared my tutorial info with your followers too. You are such a gracious lady & it's no surprise that you're such an inspiration to so many people.
Warmest wishes, Di
