Beautiful In-Colors and a cute note holder

ETA: Here are the measurements to make this simple note holder.
Melon mambo cardstock: 4 1/4" X 11" score at 4 1/2" and 6 1/2"
Pink pirouette inside tray: 4"X5 1/4" score 1" all around, cut a slit on each corner and join to form box. Attach to middle section of melon mambo cardstock.
Other: soft suede top note, score in half

Hello Friends! I've been MIA for a few days but I just HAD to get my act together to cut all of the kits for my class this coming Saturday and Sunday! Discipline was in order and that meant that I couldn't be on the computer at all! Tough, I tell ya! Well, in between cuttimg kits, I needed a break and I wanted to make this cute note holder with 3X3 cards. The idea started brewing when I saw the cover of the SU demonstrator publication called Stampin' Success. Well, they had a cute noteholder on the cover similar to the one I ended up creating. For some reason, I didn't like the one that I first created, so here's the one that I ended up making. I used the new in-color cardstock, Melon Mambo and Soft Suede. Love these new in-colors! By the way, my class this coming week will feature all of the new in-colors! I used a new stamp set called Circle Circus, which I almost didn't order and stamped color on color (melon mambo ink on melon mambo cardstock). Here's a side view of the note holder.
Here's what it looks like opened. It was kind of humbug to open this up because I had to cut a slit in the middle of the top note die to get the ribbon through to the top. I think I wil skip using the ribbon for the next one I make. I used a piece of velcro to hold the flap closed (and that's why I would omit the ribbon the next time).
Here are the cute 3X3 cards with envelopes that I placed inside of this holder. Let me know if you are interested in the measurements of this holder.I hope you all enjoyed your 4th of July long weekend. Mine was very hectic with all of the planning and oh, there's so many things to do before the crafting can begin. Thank you for coming for a visit today! I appreciate you!
