Tutorial for the Card holder or notepad

No, you are not seeing things. Yes, I did post this project the other day but I have the tutorial ready for it now. 

Note pad or card holder
pictures and instructions by Tanya Stottlemire
Note this is not my original design, I got my basic info from as well as splitcoaststampers tutorials.

Start with an 8 1/2x 11 piece of cardstock ( I am using strawberry slush )
score the 11 inch side at 2 inch, 3 inch, 9inch and 10 inch, then
on the 8 ½ inch side score at 1, 2, 6 ½ and 7 ½.

cut away the squares and spots marked with an X
then trim away the triangles marked with diagonal lines to create tabs.

After the extra paper is cut off and the tabs are made your cardstock should look like the photo below

Now fold all your crease lines and make sure you have the bottom of the box facing up and add score tape/sticky strip to all the tabs. (photo below)

Turn box over and add sticky strip to 3 sides of the box. (do not add it to the larger side that was scored at 2” and 3” yet) excuse the extra score line on the left it was a mistake. Photo below

Flip it over again and add your designer paper to the large space. My dsp is cut at 1 ¾ x 4

Move to the other end of the box, and using a circle punch, punch a hole that will make your tab when your box is done.  

Now carefully fold your box except the end with the dsp and fold in your tabs. Next, apply snail adhesive to the side flaps that are next to your dsp and fold them inside the box. Your box should now look like this.  

Finish by decorating how you would like. I added ribbon and a flower. Then cut printer paper in 1/4's and fill your box for scratch paper or with cards. You can see the punched tab on the photo below.
