Step 1: Materials and Tools
Steel ruler or T-square
Needle and Thread
Bone Folder ( Used for folding paper, thumbnail will work as well )
8.5 x 11" craft or butcher paper, or cut out from paper shopping bag (1)
8.5" x 11" text weight paper or printer paper (10)
some scrap craft paper for pencil holder
Step 2: First and Second Fold
Then measure down 3/4 from both end and fold there on both sides.
Step 3: Folding Corners Down
Step 4: Next Fold
Step 5: Fold to Wallet Size
Make two folds that will nest into one another to hold the cardholder structure together.
Use a credit card to determine where these need to be.
Make sure to leave about 1/8" on either side of card from fold.
Step 6: Cutting Paper for Notepad
You are going to want to cut the paper for your notepad about 1/4" smaller then the cardholder to set it in from the edge.
Mine came out to be about 6 1/2" x 3 1/2" so I cut my notepad paper to 6 1/4" x 3 1/4".
Step 7: Fold Notepad
Step 8: Holes for Sewing
Using your needle poke a hole in center of all papers.
The poke a hole 3/4" from top and bottom.
Tip for making holes: Get it started on first page then hold the stack of paper and push down with needle vertically placed in desired location.
Step 9: Securing Thread to Needle
Then slowly pull thread down to snug it to the needle.
Step 10: Sewing Notepad to Cardholder
Then begin sewing starting from the inside. ( which ever side you start on is going to be where the knot is )
Next choose either the top or bottom hole, the go past middle hole and into the hole that hasn't been threaded yet.
Next go back through center hole to end up where you began.
Finally tie a square knot twice in the thread and trim excess off to finnish the sew.
Step 11: Pencil Holder
You need two pieces that are about 1 3/4" x 2"
Use your pencil to find size of loop.
Then use a glue stick to secure loop together.
The loops are then glued into the folds of the cardholder.
