Scallop Notes Card Holder

This adorable Scallop Notes Card Holder was one of the fabulous projects I learned how to create at Stampin' Up! Regionals in Minneapolis.  I think it would be a charming "little something" gift for a party or dinner host.

Here are the step by step instructions (reprinted for the most part from my Stampin' Up! worksheet):

1.  Stamp bird image twice in Chocolate Chip ink on each small piece of Very Vanilla card stock (2 1/4" x 4") for four total stamped images.  Punch out three of the images using the 1 3/4" Circle Punch.  Cut out the fourth image.

2.  Adhere each punched bird image to a Scallop Note using Stampin' Dimensionals.

3.  Attach Silver Brad to center of each felt flower and adhere one to each Scallop Note.  Set fourth flower aside.

4.  Stamp sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink on each Scallop Note.

5.  Place each large piece of Designer Series paper (4 1/4" x 3") partially inside an envelope.  Lick envelope flaps to adhere Designer Series paper.  Cut Designer Series paper to shape of envelope flaps.  I loved this idea!

6.  Lay Very Vanilla card stock (9 3/4" x 6") out lengthwise and score at 4 3/4" and 5".  Rotate 90 degrees and score a 2 1/2".  Fold on score lines to create card folder.  TIP:  I added a little sticky strip to the pocket flap to adhere it to the "backbone."

7.  Wrap ribbon around card folder, and adhere portion to front of card folder usign Sticky Strip.

8.  Round all corners of Baja Breeze card stock (4 1/4" x 3") using the 3/16" Corner Rounder Punch.  Adhere to front of card folder over ribbon using adhesive.

9.  Attach strip of Baja Breeze Designer Series paper ( 4 1/4" x 1 1/8") to front of card folder.

10.  Punch circle from Pink Pirouette Textured card stock (2 1/4" x 4") using the 1 3/4" Circle Punch, and adhere to Metal Edge Tag using adhesive.

11.  Adhere cut-out bird to circle using Stampin' Dimensionals.

12.  Adhere felt flower to edge of tag.

13.  Adhere Metal Edge Tag to card folder using Stampin' Dimensionals.

14.  Stamp sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink on front of card folder.

15.  Tie Ribbon around card folder to close it.

Thank you for such a resounding "hurrah" for yesterday's card by my Guest Stamper Mike Funke.  He emailed me today that his beautiful water coloring was accomplished using Stampin' Up! markers.  Check out this tutorial by Julie Buhler he relied on (also on my left side bar).

  3. We did this project at the Orlando Regionals and it was my favorite Make ‘n Take that day. Such a cute idea and really easy to reproduce. 🙂


  4. This is such a nice idea so you can give the unused cards as gifts.

    I am going to attempt it but i don’t know if it will turn out as nice as yours Mary! Nice use of the Baja breeze – i’m in Australia and we have only just got our new catalogue released. Very exciting!

  5. Mary – I love this idea. Thank you so much for sharing all the instructions. I missed Regionals this year, and I’m always happy when others share what they learned there.

  6. I made this one at the San Antonio Regional too. I really liked it a lot. Not too difficult and I agree, its a great gift.

  7. This is a good one, for sure. I love the card holder projects because I have 2.5 million cards and need to give them away in bulk.
