CTMH Christmas Crafts Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to My Heart Christmas Crafts Blog Hop. This blog is affiliated with The Heartfelt Sentiment Group. If you are coming from Katy Taylor, then you are on the right track.

 Christmas is fast approaching and what special way to give out your gift than giving them in this cute card purse. I saw this cute project in Pinterest and tried it using CTMH White Pine paper packet. I includes the recipe to make this project.


1 piece of solid color cardstock ( Colonial White) 5 3/4" x 11"
2 pieces of printed card stock (White Pines) 4 1/8" x 4 3/4"
2 pieces of solid color cardstock (Fern) 1/2" x 4 3/4"
Stamp set
Scallop punch ( fern), 2" circle punch.
Scoring tool
2pc. of 11" of ribbon.
Double-side adhesive tape

Step 1
Score your 5 3/4" x 11" at 10 1/2", 6", 5 1/4" and 3/4"( Landscape).
Step 2-
Turn to portrait and score at 5".
Step 3-
Cut the bottom 4 score (vertical lines) stopping at the horizontal score lines.  Adhere the front , back and side panels using pattern paper and green card stock. Do not glue the box yet only the paper.
Step 5-
 Using a circle punch, cut a notch in the center of both the front and back of the box.
Step 6-
Place adhesive tape, fold and assemble the box.
Step 7-
Punch 2 hole on either side of the circle notch. attach ribbon. I glued buttons to decorate the box.


This is another nice way to present recipe cards or hand made card.


*Cut a 6 1/2" x 11 1/4" of solid cardstock.
*Score at 2 3/4", 3 1/4",7 1/2"& 8": crease folds. This will create the folder, with the largest section becoming the back of the folder.
*Cut a piece of coordinating ribbon 24" long. Find the center and put a 2" long piece of double-sided tape on the backside of the ribon; adhere horizontally to the back of the folder. Tie the recipe cards or hand made cards securely inside.
*Decorate. I used the strip from White Pine paper and added a decorative trim. Glue ribbon all around the folder and tie a bow. Embellish. Add Velcro where the top and bottom flaps meet.
