Stationary Card Set

I did not get very much done today. I have so much that I want to do and my mind is constantly going--and I have not taken the time to sit down and jot anything down....I need to take a moment to breathe.....
I am not accomplishing much and this weekend I have a very "BIG" list of things to complete....I know that I will get some things done, but right now it does not feel like it.......After all the things that I wanted to do, this is the one thing that I did complete....(or did I?????) I keep looking at it , thinking, "is there something else that I need to do with this card set"? So....... I will just set it aside until I decide whether I am finished with it........But you can take a peek.....HeHE....(I even included instructions......)

This card set can hold up to 10 cards and envelopes. I only made 5 cards and the envelopes are store bought. This is NOT even a part of my Weekend Challenge..... I hope I get that done by the weekend...... (haha......)

Supplies
1 sheet of 8.5" x 11" cardstock
Paper Trimmer
Scoring Blade/tool
Long Reach hole punch/eyelet setter
Papers & Stamps for decorating
Ribbon- about 18 "
Instructions
Step 1: Holding cardstock with longest side horizontal, score at 5" & 6"

Step 2: Turn paper so long side is vertical and score at 2" and 2.5"

Step 3. Cut out the shaded area (see below) (or cut score lines and fold back to 2.5" line .)


Step 4: cover your card holder with papers or stamps (as desired).
Step 5: Cut (2) pieces of paper at 10.5" x 2".
Step 6: Score both strips at 5" & 5.5.".
Step 7: Fold up the bottom two flaps of holder and adhere one strip of paper to first inside flap and around the front. Adhere the other strip to the other flap and around the back of the holder

Using a card (size that will go in the holder) punch a hole/eyelet on both sides of the card.



Step 9: Run ribbon through holes starting from the right side hole on the front and go to next hole weaving in and out AS SHOWN ABOVE.
