Step 13: Folding The Card Holder

  • This part is going to be difficult to explain. Basically we are fan-folding the pages back and forth.  There will be folds or valleys in the card holder.  Every other side will have a fold along the inside edge.  I hope I explained that well enough. Each page measures about 4 and 1/4 inches, except for the front and back pages which measures 4 and 3/4 inches.  The reason they are wider is because of the bulk of the inside pages.  You may need to fold it a few times to get the front and back pages to look even with the other pages. Press the pages to get a nice hard crease.The back flap folds toward the front flap and the front flap will fold over the back flap.
    When you open the card holder,  the back page flips out towards the right.
Please note: If anyone has any suggestions on how to re-word this part please do leave a comment.  
Thanks for commenting PotatoCoffee and I hope you have a happy rest of December! Sunshiine
No problem! I've been busy making festive cookies and tree decorations this December so I've been very busy! I always leave it to the last minute, literally! I hope you have a great Christmas! <br><br>-PotatoCoffee
Aaaaaaw thanks! Hope you plan on posting all of these great creations! I will be on the lookout! Merry Christmas to you also! Sunshiine
I'm hoping to post the Christmas tree cookies and maybe a tree decoration.
Super I will watch!
What a great job sunshiine!!! Love the added bonus of the recipe card holder - also a super gift idea.<br><br>BTW, I read &quot;credits&quot; and what you said about your son... well, you just made me cry. :-)::::::::::
I cry every-time he thanks me. It means so much. I worked so hard on that dinner. I had the table decorated with grape lights, colored glasses, and handmade napkins. The lasagna was aaaamazing! I had not seen him for 2 years and had missed him so much. He asked for a lasagna dinner. I could not have made that day shiine any brighter! Hope your having fun! Sunshiine
Such a nice story! Thanks for sharing it. We had such a looooooong drive to get here. There was 7 cars in the ditch, four of them were flipped over. It was so slippery, but we made it ok, so that's the main thing.<br><br>Hope you're having fun! Talk to you soon.
I am glad you are safe and sound! Sunshiine
Bravo1<br>And you are an artist: an artist in family, food and sewing. Art takes many forms!
Yes, I understand what you are saying. I come from a family that draws and paints. To me this is art. Oh don't get me wrong, I am an artist but not in brushing the waves of the ocean or coloring a majestic mountain. My art is the art of creating a mood maybe? I embrace your compliments especially the part about family. Thanks! Hope you day shiines brightly! Sunshiine<br>Oh yeah I can't resist, I have been meaning to stop in to see your recent entry about wrapping. A big tear falls and splats to the floor! I was going to do that! Boo hoo! The good news is I always have a back-up! Stay tuned for something very different!
Awesome job Sunshiine! Beautiful recipe holder!
I embrace your comment! Thanks for sharing and I appreciate your creative side as well! Sunshiine
Your contributions just get more and more gorgeous! This one could definitely be two different I'bles.
I appreciate your comment scoochmaroo. I do get carried away sometimes. I guess because I do not have certain artistic talents, I feel I need to compensate. I thought just entering plain butter cookies would not be anything for anyone to shout about. But a plain cookie wrapped in the gift itself might make a bold statement. I would love to be a little tiny mouse with great big ears at the office of Instructables! I would perk right up if I heard any discussions about &quot; you gotta see this one!&quot; It would be interesting to understand how other people perceive creativeness. Hope your side shiines brightly today!<br>Sunshiine
OMG!!!!!<br>those cookies look soooooooooooo delishus!!!!! <br><br>it's been 12 YEARS since I was able to eat normal food...80(
OOOOOOOOO I am sorry to hear that! They were the best cookies that I have ever made! So easy to work with. May the sun warm your heart today!<br>Sunshiine
