Simple Card Holder Tutorial

When I posted this cute card holder that my GF Lynnelle made for me, I got a bunch of emails asking for measurements and more info on how to make this cuz it's so cute! Thanks again, Lynnelle, for this really neat card holder and for the inspiration!!Since Lynnelle was not available over the long weekend to get any measurements from, I decided to try and figure it out. Here's my take on the card holder. I made it a little smaller to fit the standard card size cards.
Love this SU speciality DSP. This one is called Parisian Breeze. Oh, speaking of DSP, it's only a couple more days, but I totally forgot to mention that SU is having a DSP special...buy 3 packs and get one FREE! We like free, right? If you are interested in catching this awesome deal, you can click onto my SU website to place your order :)
Okay...on to the tutorial...for the box, you will need one piece of cardstock cut at 8" X 10 1/2". Score one inch on both sides, turn the cardstock and score at 4 3/4" and 5 3/4".
Cut as shown and set aside.
Adhere sides in place.

Attach a jumbo eyelet on each side. Insert ribbon. Length depending on how long you want the handle. (Sorry, I forgot to take a pic of the ribbon being put in).
Now to make the cover. you will need a piece of DP 6" X 8 1/2". Score at 2 3/4" and 3 3/4". Corner round the corners as shown.
Add adhesive to the backside of the cover, on the bottom only!
Adhere to the box as shown.
It should look like this. (Mine is missing the ribbon here). You are done! Embellish as desired. Wasn't that easy??!! Hope this inspires you to try making one!
Here's the finished cardholder again...I used my Sizzix butterfuly die and the stamp set is called Simple Friendship.
Thanks for coming by for a visit today. It's been a busy week so far. I have a couple of raks to share soon and some creations using some new stamps that I received in my rak!! Have a wonderful day!
