Matchbook 3x3 Card Holder Tutorial

As promised, here is a quick tutorial on how I made the Matchbook 3x3 card holder I posted last week.
Cut cardstock to 3-1/2" x 8-1/4". Score the length at 3-1/4", 3-1/2" and 7-1/4".
Use the Scallop Edge Punch along the end that is to be folded up. Staple that in the center after you scallop the edge. Staple towards the bottom so you don't interfere with the placement of the cards. You'll cover up the staple with ribbon.

Get all the accessory pieces cut and ready for assembling. I used the Scallop Circle #2 die-cut and Circle #2 die-cut. Stamp is from All Holidays. I used the paper piercing tool to poke holes in the scallops.

The 3x3 cards are the same as I posted last week. Remember I said I have hundreds of owls? More owl projects to come this week. Ü

Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Early Espresso smooth and textured, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive
Accessories: Boho Blossoms Punch, little flower punch from that trio set (highly technical explanation, I know), Old Olive brads Early Espresso 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Play Date DSP

  5. More absolute cuteness from you... You little Owl project are the cutes ever... I am so sad that I won't get to see you this year... I can't believe it's convention and I am not there.. And of course the bags in memento mall are adorable... :( Even if I came up to see everyone I would have to just stand outside and wait for all my cute friends... :( My heart is with you all...

    I hope you win big!
