A Stampin' friend of mine (Hi Tami!) recently introduced me to the circle card case. It's such a cute card and holder - it's perfect to attach to a gift or even just to send a special message to someone in the mail. It's similar to the carousel note holder that has been floating around on various sites and blogs, but ultimately different. Take a look. The finished size of the card holder is 3 x 4 1/8 and the insert is 2 5/8 x 4 These are very simple and quick to make and can be made to accommodate different size cards/inserts.
The first step is to cut a circle. I used my Stampin' Up! Color Coach as a guide. The Color Coach is 8" in diameter. This size circle will fit an insert measuring 2 5/8 x 4 (as indicated above). Anything round will do. I know a lot of people use plates or various other round kitchen items. I used Le Jardin designer series paper for this project. You can use cardstock if you choose, but I find the designer paper is so much easier to work with. (click the thumbnail images to enlarge)
Adhere double stick tape (Sticky Strip works best) on the bottom of each flap. Fold each flap toward the center. *NOTE: I punched three holes along the right flap before adhering it to the center. These holes will hold my ribbon. Inserting the ribbon at this point is easiest. Once the ribbon is inserted I added a small piece of adhesive just to the left of the ribbon so it will help the flap lay flat.
Once both sides have been folded toward the center you're done! Embellish as desired.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great Wednesday.
