I know you will be surprised to learn I was inspired to create this paper card file from this pin on Pinterest. I created it for my Cricut using Design studio and George basic shapes cartridge. My favorites.
This card file is holding 8 standard A2 sized cards and 8 envelopes. The cards are bulky and each has a ribbon bow or knot, giving them extra thickness, so if you had single layer cards it would hold many more. The finished size is 4.75 x 6 x 2 inches.
This is a peek at the back side. Every side is decorated, these cuts are on the Cricut .cut file also.
Below are lots of pictures to illustrate assembling all the pieces.
6. Fold tab from side 1 over taped tab from side 2.
7. Run tape around small side tab and across long end as seen above. (Remember you can double click on any photo's and they will open up bigger for you to see the details clearer.)
8. Flip the whole thing over and run tape around all sides of other small tab.
9. To easily attach the long taped edge to the inside of the file, this creates a sturdier bottom, I pushed the small tabs in (so they won't attach to the bottom before you are ready) and then I slid the long end inside and got it perfectly lined up before I sealed the tape to the inside of the file. Then from the inside I pressed the 2 small tabs down.
And holding its loot. A ribbon around the whole thing, maybe a tag or some sort of label on the front side and it is all ready for gift giving.
As always, if you would like to create these for yourself just leave a comment on this post. Be sure to include you email address, and I will send you the .cut file.
