For today's random craft, I found this perfect little notecard folder online last week. We will be making this for stamp club in August using a variety of colors and stamps. This is the perfect little gift! For my folder, I decided to pull two retired, but still loved colors, Strawberry Slush and Pistachio Pudding!
Dimensions for folder and box are as follows:
-- 9-1/4 by 5-3/4 inches
-- Score on the long side at 4-1/4 inches and 5 inches
-- Round the corners if desired (I just did the top corner)
Box for cards
-- 8-7/8 by 3 inches
-- Score on the long side at 3-5/8, 4-1/8, 7-3/4, 8-1/4 inches.
-- Score on the short side at 1/2 inch
-- Assemble with a strong adhesive
Before attaching the box for cards, add a piece of ribbon on the outside of the folder. I used some retired Crumb Cake ribbon. (See pic above) Once the ribbon is in place, attach box to inside of the folder. You can also make a sleeve to hold your envelopes using a simple piece of cardstock. I cut mine to 1 1/2" x 11". I wrapped the cardstock around my notecard envelopes, score, and attach to the folder. I don't have precise measurements for this one.
For my notecards, I cut some Whisper White to the notecard size (3 1/2" x 5"). From there I added some simple stamped images from Timeless Textures, a sentiment from Suite Sayings, and a butterfly from Papillon Potpurri. I went simple. Two cards are done in Strawberry Slush and two cards are done in Pistachio Pudding. This gift is so perfect to make in bulk for friends and family. I'm certain I'll make a few different variations.
