Make a Notecard Holder: Tutorial

Here is south Florida we are in the height of hurricane season.  Word on the street is that schools might be closed tomorrow because there is a storm brewing.  Whenever school is cancelled, I always wonder what parents do when they have to scramble to find stuff for their kids to do. 

Here's an idea!  Get out your craft supplies and have your kids whip up some of these cute and easy note card boxes.  They can fill them with little monogram note cards and give them to their friends and/or teachers for the holidays.


paper cutter with scoring blade

assorted cardstock and cardstock scraps

embellishments, ribbon, punches

For the Box:

1)  Cut a piece of cardstock to 5" x 11"

2)  Score at 1 1/2" across the length (the 5" side)

3)  Turn the cardstock and score at 1", 4", 6", and 9"

4)  Cut and assemble the box

For the notecards:

Cut pieces of cardstock 8 1/2" x 2 7/8" and decorate.  The box holds approximately 8 to 10 cards.
