Step 1: Items Needed
- Cardstock (12" x 9.75")
- 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")
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
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
Fold one panel over the center and glue the bottom seams together along the inside on the very edge.
Step 13: Finish
Fold and glue down the other panel. Glue button on. Voila!
