Creativity Prompt #26 – Card Set Holder

November 21st, 2008 by Avital

Card Set Holder

This card set holder is the perfect handmade token of appreciation to anyone you would like to give thanks to. It takes minutes to assemble and you can use inexpensive envelopes which are available at any convenient store and a couple sheets of cardstock (each sheet yields 4 cards, measured 3″ by 6″) and the holder accommodates 5 cards & 5 envelopes. The holder itself is made out of one sheet of cardstock.

So without further ado lets jump right into this week’s tutorial:

Instructions –

  1. Download the card set holder template. Note that the template isn’t scaled but only designed to give you an idea of the measurements of all the folding and cutting that needs to be done. So don’t print out the template.
  2. Trim one sheet of cardstock to a 9″ by 12″ piece.

    • Along the 12″ side, score your cardstock at 1/2″, 1″ on each side.
    • Flip your cardstock to the 9″ side and score at: 4″, 4 1/2″, 8 1/2″, 9″.
    • Trim along the one inch score line on each side and keep only the 3″ flap at the very end.

  3. fold all the scoring lines and burnish with a bone folder.
  4. Apply double sided tape to the two outer flaps.

  5. Adhere the outer flap to the inner part of the first 4″ section of your cardstock. Repeat on both sides. That would form the pocket of your card set holder.

  6. Use a circle punch to punch out half a circle from the middle of the pocket. That would give your card set holder a finished look.

    [You could, and perhaps should, punch out the circle before adhering the pocket. It would be much easier to punch your cardstock while it’s still flat…]
  7. Insert the envelopes and cards inside the pocket and your pretty gift is ready to be given.

  8. For an added interest and a finished look you can embellish your cards and envelopes to match by using the same design on both.
