3x3 Card Set and Fold-Up Holder

I found some time to play with my inks and stamps and created this pretty little set of 3x3 cards with an easy-to-make, cute little holder.  There's room in there for the envelopes, too.  ;)

I'm still waiting on my new product order from the new Close To My Heart Idea Book - available August 1st.  Once it arrives, I think I may just have to make another one of these sets with new product.

I random stamped my Kraft cardstock using the I Am stamp set from an old kit called Tickled Pink.  You could very easily use any floral set in it's place, though. 
(Or if you don't feel like random stamping, just use B&T instead.)

I used a stamp set called Tasty Treats on the belly band that wraps around the holder, along with the same flower and leaf images from the I Am set.  {I'm not sure if the Tasty Treats set is retired or if it's still available, but I do have a brand new set if anyone is looking to buy one.  I ordered it a while back by accident, and I'm more than willing to sell it.  I don't really need 2 of them...  lol}

Quick instructions to make the holder and belly band:
Holder - Kraft CS:  3 1/4" x 12"; score at 2 1/4", 2 3/4", 6 1/4", 6 3/4", and 10 1/4"
Belly Band - Smokey Plum CS:  1" x 8 1/2"; score at 2", 2 5/8", 5 7/8", and 6 1/2"
Finished holder size:  3 1/2" (h) x 3 1/4" (w) x 1/2" (d)

I hope you enjoyed my project today.
Why don't you give it a try?

They make a great little hand-made gift.
I'll be giving this one away myself on Monday to one of my Workshop attendees as a door prize.

Happy creating!  :)
