How to make a Card Folder....

It's tutorial Wednesday at Catch-The-Bug and it is my turn. I always struggle as to what to show you, I was browsing on Pinterest one day and found this cute little card box/folder so I decide to make one. This box was originally made by Jill Hilliard so Kudos go out to her.

First you need a sheet of card stock 6 x 10.25 inches; score at 4 1/2" and 5 5/8".

Next you need a sheet of cardstock 4 x 11 "; score at 2 1/4, 3 1/4 and 7 3/4, 8 3/4. Turn lengthwise and score at 1 inch.

Cut the little tabs as shown above and use a border punch along the top to make a decorative edge.

Fold along score lines to make a box-seam goes in the back.

Tape box to the inside of you base. Decorate box any way you wish.

I used flower pot 5 from Bug-A-Boo Stamps, colored with copics and the paper is from DCWV. This box will hold 4-6 (A2) cards depending on how many embellishments you put on them.

I added a white bow to the front to help hold it closed.
