Page Protector Card Holder

Would you like to create one of these? Here is my tutorial as promised from yesterday's posting.
Before we begin you will need the following supplies:
1 piece of 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock (your choice of color)
1 clear plastic page protector for a 6x6 photo album
Sticky Strip (or strong double sided tape)
Rubber Stamps, Scissors, Ribbon, Paper Trimmer and Scoring Tool, Velcro and hole punch
Here is what your finished product will look like.
1. Here is what the 6x6 page protector looks like.
2. You will trim off the side that has the holes for the album. It should be a perfect square.
3. Add tape to all four sides of the page protector. (I ran out of tape for one side in this picture. )

4. You will take your cardstock and cut off 2" on the short side. (Your cardstock should
now measure at 6 1/2" x 11")
5. Start stamping all over one side of your cardstock. This will be the back of your card holder. Then color in your images.
6. Take your Page Protector and start removing the paper from your adhesive and stick it to the unstamped side of your cardstock.
7. Take your paper trimmer and score your cardstock above the open pocket of the page protector.
8. Next, cut the flap of the cardstock to your desired length.
9. Punch one hole on the right and left sides of the flap on the scored line.
10. Thread your ribbon in the holes and tie knots.
11. Prepare your cards and envelopes to be placed in the gift card holder.
12. Lastly, create a closure for your holder. 13. Use velcro for the flap to adhere to the page protector.
Optional: I have added a book of stamps in the holder so the person I give it to does not need to buy stamps.
I hope that this tutorial was easy to follow and that you will find this something fun and easy to make for any occassion. I think I should have added more pictures for you but hopefully this will do. Would love to know what you think.

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope your day is going well.
