Card Organizer

I haven’t had much stamping time this past week because I’ve been working out in the yard. Spring is here and we finally have the budget to do a little landscaping. Well, a little turned into a lot! But I’m looking forward to seeing my roses, wisteria, and jasmine grow! And I can’t wait to eat some mandarin oranges and lemons from our own trees!

But now, back to stamping! We had our monthly meeting last week and we made this great card organizer as one of our projects! I think this would make a great gift for birthdays, teachers, friends, etc.
We started with one piece of so saffron cardstock 7 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ and scored it at 2 1/2″, 5″ and 10 1/2″ lengthwise. Next we took another piece of so saffron cardstock 7 1/2″ x 8″ and scored it at 2 1/2″ lengthwise. These two pieces create the outside of the box.For the sides we took 2 pieces of so saffron cardstock 6″ x 5 1/4″ and scored them every 1/2″ lengthwise. Then we accordian folded them and used the crop-a-dile to punch holes in the tops and bottoms so we could string some hemp through.We attached the pieces together and added some Le Jardin dsp layered with always artichoke.I added a ribbon handle on the top and some dividers with tabs for birthday cards, baby cards, thank you cards, and other misc. cards. Edited to add: My upline did a tutorial! Check it out!
