Card Portfolio Tutorial

I love this portfolio for holding cards, because it's so easy, doesn't involve any glue or tape and it's pretty!I adjusted the measurements to accommodate 5 by 7 cards.
 If you'd like to make it for 4 1/4 by 5 1/2, use an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of cardstock and score at 5 inches and 6 inches when placed landscape. Turn and score at 2 1/2 inches and 2 inches.

Cardstock 12” by 12”
Hole punch
Score board or tool

1.       Take a 12 by 12 inch sheet of cardstock and score as shown in the diagram, at 5 ½ inch and 6 ½ inch, then turn the sheet and score at 7 ½ and 8. Cut out the gray area and fold. 

2.       Punch a hole on each side through both the flap and the front/back panels. Then thread ribbon through holes.

3.       Embellish the front as desired. Fill with cards, close and secure by tying a bow.
