Experimenting with boxes, cardholders and double pocket bags

When time has allowed I've been trying out several tutorials I have found for the above. Here are some I have tried out.


Isn't this just so pretty? It's a Double Pocket Bag by Jenn Diercks

The tutorial is very easy to follow though I should have made Steps 6 to 8 a bit wider as I felt the base was not quite wide enough for it to stand up properly.

Uses 1 piece of 12x12 patterned cardstock or paper so quite economical to make.


This is my take on Cindy Lyles (Starlit Studios) card holder. It takes 6 cards and 6 envelopes.

This is easy to make and can be decorated in various ways.


These card organisers can be found at Dannies Designs. This link should also point you to her video tutorial.

I borrowed a friend's Scor-Pal to do the scoring and have now decided I must have one myself. It makes it so quick and easy. Was really happy with how these turned out though they are fiddlier to do than the other card holders but of course, hold a lot more and also make wonderful recipe holders.

Another must-have for making these is the Crop-a-dile.

Thanks for sharing the tutorial. I'll be going to California in January for the CHA convention(Craft & Hobby Assoc. - my friend has a craft store & I'm going as her guest), and while there my niece is having a birthday. I wanted to make her a little assortment of note cards in a box! Perfect! Your's are beautiful, by the way!
