Bella Rose Card Holder

Here is the Bella Rose Card Holder we made at my stamp camp this past weekend that matches the four Bella Rose cards we made! I love it - and it looks beautiful sitting on my desk! I have step-by-step pictures and instructions below to show you how to make it, and there's also a recipe at the very bottom with the dimensions and colors of the paper. All supplies used and shown are from Stampin' Up!
After you have scored the paper, use your Paper Snips on the 7-1/2" side to cut the two center score lines up to where they intersect with the score lines on the 10" side.
While the paper is flat, use your SNAIL Adhesive to adhere the Bella Rose Designer Paper to the top and sides of the box.
It's hard to see in this picture, but I've placed two pieces of Sticky Strip on the two upper and outer edges of the box. If you flipped the paper over, the Sticky Strip is directly behind where you've placed the designer paper on the short sides of the box.
Once you tape it all together, the picture above is what it should look like!
Using your 1-3/8" Circle Punch, punch out a half circle in the front and center of the holder. This makes it easier to grab a card when you need one!
Add your Wide Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon and tie it in a knot! If you have trouble with knots, you can visit an older post on my blog for a video tutorial on how to master this!
Using a hat pin from the Pretties Kit, thread two crystal beads and two pearl beads onto the hat pin. Then slide it through your knot to secure it in place.
Using two Mini Glue Dots, adhere your half-back pearls onto the Wide Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon - and VOILA! - you've got a gorgeous Bella Rose vintage-looking card holder to place your beautiful Bella Rose cards in!
