Invitation Holder

Introduction: Invitation Holder

-Cardstock (12" x 7 1/4")
-Hot glue gun (and glue)
-Fabric (outside pattern should measure at least 13" x 8", inside (contrast) pattern should measure at least 5 1/2" x 8")
-Bone folder (optional)

Step 1: Fold Vertically

Make 2 vertical folds in the cardstock, inward to make 3 sections. The left section should measure 3 1/4", the middle section 5 1/2", the right section 3 1/4"

Step 2: Fold Corners

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

Step 3: Inside (Contrast) Fabric

Lay the inside fabric on the inside panel

Step 4: Flip and Glue

Flip the whole thing over. There should be a 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 5: Add Outer Fabric

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

Step 6: 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 7: Fold and Glue Corners

Holding the outside fabric taut, fold in the corner and glue down. Repeat step on other corner.

Step 8: Glue Sides

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

When gluing the bottom edge of the fabric to the cardstock, keep clean, crisp corners

Step 9: Adhere Panels

Fold one panel inward and glue bottom edge in place. Fold other panel to overlap. Glue bottom and side edge that overlaps. For added stability, glue the slanted edge of the panels that overlap.

    I'll have to try but I might just hand sew instead of using glue. lol

    Thanks for the tutorial Sis. We just made it. They are super cute. We followed your instructions last year for the normal tract holder and it was great too.
