Thick White Cardstock: Cut a mat piece 1 7/8” x 2 1/2”
Garden Green Cardstock: Cut a mat piece 2” x 2 5/8”
Be Merry Designer Series Paper: Cut three full pieces in half (6” x 12”). Score at 2 3/4”, 6”, and 9 ¼” on the LONG side and fold.
Starting at about 1” inside the top edge of each outer flap, cut from that mark down to make a triangle as shown in the picture:
Take the triangular piece you cut out and flip it over laying it on top of the other side and repeat the cut:
I then sewed along the bottom and sides of some of the flaps, and on others just across the bottom. This helps to create the pockets. I used a 3.5 stitch length and back stitched on both ends.
Next, place all six pieces together with the pockets all facing inward and sew down the middle.
Cut a 16” piece of Garden Green 3/8” Stitched Satin Ribbon and lay across the middle. Sew it on and back stitch it to attach it firmly.
Receipts inside. You can also insert notes, letters, and treasures from Christmas.
Stamp the saying from Better Together in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the Thick White Cardstock.
Layer it onto the Garden Green Cardstock and attach to the front.
