"Card Holder Tutorial"


You asked for it. Here it is!!! This is a tutorial for the card holder using the Scor-Pal. If you do not have one I will also give you the measurements for the Fiskers Cutter which is what I used before I got the Scor-Pal. Printable directions are at the bottom of this post.

Step 1: Line up your paper at ¾ inch and score at 1 1/2, 2, 8, and 8 ½

Step 2: Flip paper and line up at ¼ inch and score at 3 ¼, 4, 8 ½, and 9


Step 3: Cut along the scor lines so it looks like this










Step 4: Round the corners of the smaller panel











Step 5: Flip around and put Scor-Tape on the back of the flap not rounded




















Step 6: Fold and put together

Step 7: Cut strip for mat 6 x 1 ¾ and another one you will stamp on 6 x 1 5/8

Step 8: Stamp image and adhere to mat

Step 9: Cut inches 11 ½ inches of Ribbon and adhere to the center inside of the card holder and wrap around back and adhere to front flap. I use Glue lines to secure ribbon.

Step 10: Adhere mat and stamped image to front flap and add Velcro dot to close card holder. Depending on the thickness of the cards, this card holder will hold 6 cards with envelopes.

Thanks for the directions. I like to make boxes but HATE to figure them out myself! I may do a box like this for class sometime.

Do you like your scor-pal? Do you use it much? I have been thinking about getting one.

Have a great week!
