I will be posting handmade Christmas gifts each week on Monday from now until the week of Christmas, yes I’ll still be working on my gifts right up until the week of Christmas, don’t act shocked a lot of you will be also.
This week I’m going to do a card folder. I have two examples to show how the ideas are limitless…I of course used all Stampin’ Up products (Blaise gave me the one on the left and I’ve been addicted to these things every since) and would be happy to help you do the same….email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you may have. Directions with measurements at end of post……
If you are a paper crafter, I bet you have EVERYTHING to make this gift. I am using it as a hostess gift for Christmas parties, teacher gift, etc.
- 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock for folder
- 4 8 1/2 x 11 pieces of cardstock for cards
- Pattern scrapbook paper and cardstock to decorate front
- 24 inch piece of ribbon
- Eyelets or brads
Take a piece of cardstock and score it at 6 inches and 6 1/4 inches.
Once you have your paper scored you want to cut from the bottom of the piece of paper to the top score line, measure 5 1/4 from each side of your paper and cut. It will look like this.
You are almost done! Fold the tab up secure with eyelets or brads, I like brads a lot less noise.
Ok for the outside you want to cut a piece of cardstock 5 3/4 and a piece of pattern paper 5 1/2, add your 24 inch ribbon to the back (sticky tape works best to hold it in place…you know the red kind on the roll). Add your cards to the pockets and you have a great gift.
Stop by each Monday between now and Christmas, I’ll be showing off Wooden Signs, Ornaments, scrapbook project, letter photography and a sewing project if I can get my crafting buddy Sherri to help me.
