You will find Glittered Animal Print papers in the Wild About You, Zimbabwa and Calgary Stampede Collections over at The Robin's Nest Store.
To create this set of gift cards I have teamed the Glitter Brown Animal Print Paper and some Dew Drops from The Robin's Nest with some Chocolate and some white cardstock along with some fun animal stamps from Stampin' Up! I have simply stamped these with black ink on the white cardstock. I made my card bases to fit into this Mini Magazine Holder by cutting my chocolate and white cardstock into 12.5 x 8.75cm (5 x 3 inches) when size pieces when flat. When folded the are 6.25 x 8.75cm (2.5 x 3 inches), or ATC Size.
You can buy Note Cards Envelopes which fit this size card with room to spare. The ones I have used measure 10.1 x 7.1cm and I purchased these from my local stationery store.
I have put my very CAS cards together by layering some of the Glittered Animal Print Paper under the images and finished with a few Dew Drops for a bit of color and sparkle. The Men's Dew Drops go perfectly with these papers.
INSTRUCTIONS TO MAKE A MINI MAGAZINE HOLDER
Start with a piece of cardstock 20.5cm x 17.5cm
Working across the width score at 7cm and 10.5cm then rotate the cardstock to work across the length and score 8cm in from the left side and 4.5cm in from the right hand side.
Taking your paper cutter cut in along the score lines you have just created to the first score lines you made across the width of the cardstock do not cut pass this score line. Repeat on both sides.
Your piece of cardstock should now look like this. After cutting these lines, the smaller section will become the bottom. Along the top edge of the cardstock mark in with a dot 3.5cm from each side.
Again taking your paper cutter, from the dot you have just marked cut on the diagonal across to the bottom side of the top section.
Now with the center section, score a line in from each side at 2.5cm
You are ready to start assembling, apply tape along the score line you just created and outer edge of the centre section. Folding up the bottom section towards the centre, the piece you just applied tape to will go over the bottom and hold it in place as shown. Repeat on the other side.
The top section now folds in towards the centre to create the back side and high side of our magazine holder.
So apply tape along the bottom and approx to the height of the centre section as shown.
You now have a mini magazine holder which you can decorate as desired.
This Mini Magazine Holder really is a cute way to give a set of gift cards, and you will find it is also perfect to hold a mini album instead of the cards to give as a gift. I love them because you can decorate them however you like and coordinate them to suit your cards or other included gift ideas.
I hope you all enjoy your Sunday!
