August Stamp Club - Part 2

The 3rd project in our August Stamp Club was the Card Holder.  You could make these for any occasion, holiday, or celebration! 
I started with one sheet of 8 1/2 by 11 cardstock and some coordinating Designer Series Paper and another color of solid cardstock.  I also used ribbon and the Mixed Bunch stamp set as part of the decorating, which you will see in the finished project.
Take the 8 1/2 by 11 cardstock and score it at 5 1/4 and 5 3/4 on the 11' side
 Then turn it to the 8 1/2 side and score at 2 and 2 1/4 
Cut out slit from bottom up to the 2 1/4 score line.  Fold along all the score lines to begin the shape of the cardholder

Take a solid color cardstock that measures 11 by 2; score at 5 1/4 and 5 3/4
Notice it fits around the outside of the cardholder by being scored at the exact measurements on our full sheet of cardstock.  Adhere both pieces together
Adhere your Designer Series Pieces to the inside flaps of the cardholder.  Then punch a hole thru all layers and use Sticky Strip to help hold the flaps down
Add ribbon thru the punched holes, tie a knot on the inside.  Add cards to the cardholder! 
See the other cardholders below!

I hope you try making one of these cardholders!  It would be nice as a gift or even just for yourself to hold some of your favorite cards you have received.
Happy Stamping,
