OMG- You have to see Patty Bennett’s blog with these adorable pocket note card holders. To Stinkin Cute! Here was my 1st attempt at casing. I Used K& Co Wild Saffron Paper (from the stack) and Stampin Up Sage Shadow. I used this paper because I was afraid to mess up a full sheet of my SU paper! LOL. If this ended in the trash- I would not care! The Stampin Up version is further down in the post!
How I made Mine. NOTE: I am not sure how Patty made hers– but this is my look at the picture and fake it version. Thanks Patty! This was way fun, and a challenge to figure it out! I hope you don’t mind me sharing with my readers your fabulous project.
I used 2 Sheets of double sided paper(save your scraps!), 2 sheets of Sage Shadow card stock (save your scraps here too!) and some scrap very vanilla paper and embellishments. The Envelopes are the SU small note cards that measure about 3×5.
Cut the 1st sheet of DP 6×12 and score at 4.5″ and 9″, fold to make the base of the holder. from the 2nd piece of 6×12, cut 3 strips in the following sizes: 2.5″ x 6″, 2.5″ x 6″ and 1.5″ x 6″ attach these to the base with glue on 3 sides to make the pocket. You can use Sticky strip– but I used the liquid Mono Multi- a very thin line/strip very close to the edge. That stuff holds GREAT!
My card base is 5×7 folded to 3×5. This is the same size as the Stampin Up small note cards that Patty used in her version. I prefer colored cards and I have quite a few of these sized envelopes on hand. The belly band is the scrap (1.5 x11) from one of the sheets of card stock after it was trimmed to make the smaller card size. The rest is decorating – the 2nd piece of designer paper was used for the card fronts. Lovely Labels is the stamp set. The flower is from the pretties kit, died right on the sage shadow ink pad.
Top pocket is for stamps (none shown in my pictures), next pocket is for the cards and the 3rd pocket is for the Envelopes. This can hold 4 lightly Embellished cards and envelopes. the pockets are pretty tight.
Now Here is my 2nd version:
This version I used flat note cards, which means they are like a piece of stationary that does not fold. Perfect for a quick note. These fit very well in the holder. Here I used Summer Picnic paper, Bashful blue and old olive. Because there is no designer paper on these flat note cards I was able to make this whole set from 1 sheet of summer picnic 12×12 paper and 1 sheet of bashful blue and 1 sheet of whisper white. the embellishments and the belly band came from scraps in the drawer.
What great gifts these will make. We do a lot of teacher gifts at the end of the year. These whip up in under 1 hour!!!!!!
Want this as a class? Leave a comment or send me an email. If I get enough requests, I can fit this into the schedule! Enjoy!
