Card Holder!


Happy Sunday everyone~
Hope your weekend was awesome and you had some extra time to craft.  It's another gorgeous hot day as always on the Big Island from my end of the island anyway.  
Here's an Accordion Style Card Holder that I did this morning - easy peasy!  I played around with this spare card stock that I had just to see how my first take on this project would end up looking, and I'm amazed how pretty in real it is.   You can find the tutorial here and I was surprised how quick it was to put together.  It actually can hold up to 9 - 12 cards plus envelopes  in this card holder.  And it fits perfectly with the basic 4.25 x 5.5 cards.  Depending on the thickness of your card too, these would make perfect gifts for the upcoming holiday's or any occasion.  They would be great for those craft fairs that's being going on!   If you can't sell all those accumulated cards you have stashed, well here's one way of giving them as gifts.  That's what I'm planning to do this year.   
So hope this idea gets you inspired and of course use your wild imagination and design it any which way that pleases you..  Here's my take:

Recipe for my card holder:
Papers - no name bought it  from a sale bin
Ribbon - velcro closures, 
Martha Stewart border punch

Thanks for taking a peek ~ enjoy your day/evening!
