Introduction: Tract Holder

Picture of Tract Holder

These are instructions to make a holder for tracts (or other papers) that are 9" x 3.5". This holder holds approx 20 tracts.

Step 1: Items Needed

Picture of Items Needed
  • Cardstock (12" x 9.75")
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Hot glue gun (and glue)
  • Fabric (outside pattern should measure at least 13" x 10.5", inside pattern should measure 4.5" x 10.5")
  • Button

Step 2: Fold Vertically

Make 2 vertical folds in the cardstock, inward, to make 3 sections measuring 4" each

Step 3: Fold Corners

Fold corners inward so they are even to the vertical crease on their panel

Step 4: Inside Fabric

Lay the inside fabric on the center panel

Step 5: Flip and Glue

Flip the whole thing over. There should be a little bit of overlap where the inside fabric hangs over the top and bottom. Add a small strip of hot glue to the top center of the cardstock and stick the fabric to the cardstock. Repeat this step at the bottom of the cardstock

Step 6: Add Outer Fabric

Picture of Add Outer Fabric

Lay out the outer fabric and place the cardstock (right side up) in the middle, allowing for some extra material on all sides.

Step 7: Adhere Outer Fabric

Fold a seam along the top of the outer material. Glue the center panel of the seam together, leaving the side panels loose for now.

Step 8: Fold and Glue Corner

Holding the outside fabric taut, fold in the corner and glue down.

Step 9: Glue Sides

Glue outer edge of the fabric to the cardstock. Be careful about folding the edges; make folds face down so tracts won't get caught on the edge as you slide them in.

Step 10: Repeat

Repeat steps 8 and 9 on other side

Step 11: Adhere Lower Edge

Glue lower fabric seam to bottom edge of the cardstock, keeping clean, crisp corners

Step 12: Adhere Panel

I am not likely to need a holder for tracts but this would make a cute business card holder (size adjusted) or a TERRIFIC way to "wrap" tickets or gift cards to give them as gifts. Very sweet results.
