File Folder style card holder and card(s)

Inspiration comes from everywhere, doesn't it??? I saw a file folder card box while blurfing this morning and wanted to make one. I'll share with all of you the cutting instructions that I came up with to make mine. Also, for the card, I was inspired by one made by Karla Kroese that I saw on her blog. Thanks for the inspiration, Karla!

How I made my File Folder card holder:

2 pieces CS at 6 1/2" x 7 1/2" (front and back pieces)
2 pieces CS at 4 1/2" x 4", scored at every 1/2" along the 4 1/2" side and folded accordian style (side pieces)
1 piece CS at 7 1/2" x 3 1/2", scored at 1" and 2 1/2" along long side (bottom piece)

First you need to adhere the bottom to the front and back pieces, then adhere the side accordian folded pieces to the front and back. Hopefully that makes sense. I used an oval punch to cut the handles.

I still need to make more cards to fill it up! This set will also be going into my Doorprize pile... :)

Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted): Sweet Home B&T; Cocoa and Colonial White CS; Big Pinks flower; Buttercup and Colonial White buttons; Vineyard Berry grosgrain; Chocolate waxy flax; Lace ribbon (other, unknown); Sweet Flowers, Thank You stamp sets; Connections Club adhesive pearls; Vineyard Berry, Garnet, and Cocoa inks; Indian Corn Blue grosgrain; Felt; Pewter mini brad; Corner Rounder; Lg. Oval punch (SU).
