SCS CARD CLUTCH

I know its been a while…but between Jet lag and 3 hour time zone change plus trying to get all my STUFF back where it belongs and off the floor , off the desk…out of the box…lol I am to say the least behind…. but I just watched this video and thought this was just too cute…

I don’t think I have ever given a friend and of my hand made cards because most of my friends don’t send SNAIL MAIL… I send but they don’t however , I did think that maybe they might send to others but not to me… My BFF this year told me as she was taking me to lunch and for a 1hr FOOT MASSAGE (HEAVEN) that she got me cards and that she never gives cards…lol but i got to thinking she might if I made her some and gave them to her..Plus this was a fast and simple fold AND. You may remember that I recently found and purchased some magnets…and I CAN STILL FIND THEM…lol. In any case I also thought that this would work well for a gift card hold also.  You know sometimes you purchase several gift cards like several in and APPLE package or some of the movie cards come in more than one in a package but even if you only gave one gift card and 3 handmade cards it would be a nice treat….YOU. Know your actually not supposed to know or care what the receipent does with what you give them… I have. Friend who I have been told has a draw full of gift cards that he has never used…I haven’t seen it myself but that’s the rumor …remember its the thought that counts….

So here is the image.. and the link..,,,SCS CARD CLUTCH

OPEN AND CLOSED CLUTCH

 

Now I have a couple of HINT…first I would take the ½ inch fold at the bottom of the triangle and after I have the clutch folded complete I’d go back and add some tear and tape to that crease to hold it together better..make it a little more rigid.. next whe doesn’t say it but her cards are small 3 ½ x 5 but they still will need to over lap when you insert them into the pockets…

NEXT HINT…..when I am folding the points up to the center crease I would had a VERY SMALL dab of glue to hold it down…again not much as you want it to dry so the cards don’t get stuck to it..so don’t use glue dots..I used glue…to hold those pockets then flip it over and put some tear and tape in that ½ inch fold on the bottom… I would also add dab of glue or glue dot to the tip of the triangle on the front of each side …

Lastly I haven’t measured this yet but I believe it is mailable in like a 6x 9 envelope or in a larger Manila envelope…. and if you have cards in it then it will need some extra postage…but hey its a gift right so little extra postage is not a big deal…
