Note card holder

Ok, so here is the note card holder I've been busy with. So pleased with the end result - was fun and easy to make. Firstly, my inspiration and direction came from this website:
Certainly go and have a look at this tutorial to understand how the project is made. I have followed the general idea, just adapting some measurements to suit, as I find our measurements differ from the US!! So I will give you my measurements if you wish to make one of these yourself.

You will need:
Note card holder - 1 x A4 cardstock
I've scored at 4cm with cardstock in landscape position and at 14.5cm & 15.5cm with cardstock in vertical position.
The 4cm is for where the notes/envelopes will sit inside holder, once the cardstock is folded up.
The 14.5cm & 15.5cm is the spine of the holder

Fold all scored lines and cut as directed(refer to tutorial link)
You will notice in the picture below, I've fastened the cardstock together with eyelets on each side. Another alternative to using tape and I found it helped the notes to sit nice and snug. Since having the Crop-o-dile, I'm using eyelets alot more.

The front and back of holder have been finished off with cardstock and DP.
These are my measurements:
Cardstock - 13cm x 16cm
Designer Paper - 12.5cm x 15.5cm

This is how the note holder looks when opened up - one side for notes and one side for envelopes.
For this note holder, I've made a set of five notes (pictured above)

I've used mostly Boho Backgrounds stamp set and Outlaw DP. Colours in this theme are: Choc Chip, Creamy Caramel, Really Rust, Sage Shadow and Very Vanilla. I would never have put these colours together, before Stampin'Up came up with the Boho West theme. I just love it now!!

The end result - 5 notes with matching envelopes and their own matching holder. A perfect gift.
The notes measure 10cm x 15cm with standard C6 envelopes
