This turned out so much cuter than I anticipated!!! It looks great finished and put together with the black and white card set that was on the blog last week!!! It is perfect for a gift or to store finished cards. The original idea was on http://www.kardsbykadie.blogspot.com/ in January 2012 and I saw this on http://www.southerninkerbelles.blogspot.com/ during February! I changed the size of theirs so that I could fit A2 size cards in it instead of 3x3 cards. I use and make mostly A2 size cards and I wanted something that would work for me, so, after a few test runs, I got the measurements right and made a 2 part video for you! Enjoy and get started! You WON'T be disappointed with the outcome! The measurements are re-written below the videos.
12x12 piece of Cardstock
