Today’s project is an ATC holder. This design was created by Dee Slater and inspired by Pinterest. After watching Maymay’s video with all of the ATC submissions I decided that I needed a holder for my ATC cards when the arrived.
To start this project you will need to cut a base 3 x 11 inches. Score base at 2 3/4, 3 1/4, 7, and 7 3/4. Fold on all score lines. It should look like this.
Next, we will begin assembling the envelopes (8) for the inside. You will need to cut 8 pieces at 6 x 4. Score each piece at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2 inches. Turn card stock a half turn and score at 1/2 inch. It will look like this.
You will need to cut away the shaded area and miter the corners.
Then fold along the score lines.
Place score tape along the folded edges and assemble envelope. Take a round punch and cut half a circle in the top middle of the envelope.
To create the belly band for each envelope use patterned paper 2 5/8 x 5 1/2. Then using an ATG gun or glue place around each envelope.
Once all envelopes are made it is time to put them together. I used three pieces of score tape on the back of each envelope
Then line up the next envelope and stick it to the first. Continue until all envelopes are stuck together. The will look like this from the side.
On the very back envelope put some red line tape or any strong adhesive.
Line up the envelope to the back of the base and adhere.
Now it is time to decorate the outside of your holder.
Here are the sizes for all mats:
Top and bottom- 3/4 x 3
Front top - 2 1/2 x 3
Front bottom- 3 1/4 x 3
Back - 3 3/4 x 3
Here is the size for the patterned paper:
Top and bottom- 1/2 x 2 3/4
Front bottom - 3 x 2 3/4
Back 3 1/2 x 2 3/4
Add Velcro for closer and you are finished.
