Handy Card Holder

Keep your greeting cards organized and ready in the Handy Card Holder!  Create your own card holder from a small cardboard box, markers, ribbon, glue, scissors, and colored cardstock.  Afterwards, gather all of the cards you have received and all of the cards you wish to send and store them in your new holder!

What you'll need:

  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Small cardboard box
  • Ribbon
  • Markers
  • Colored cardstock
How to make your Handy Card Holder
  1. Using scissors, cut the top flaps off of the cardboard box.  Cut the cardboard box in half.  Cut a small square out of either side of the cardboard box.  Make sure that the two squares line up.
  2. Using scissors, cut pieces of colored cardstock to cover the cardboard box.  Glue the pieces of colored cardstock to the cardboard box.  Allow the glue to dry.
  3. Using markers or bits of cardstock, decorate the colored cardstock.
  4. Cut the ribbon in half and glue a strip to the top and bottom sides of the cardboard box.  Allow the glue to dry.
  5. Your card holder is complete!  Grab some cards and envelopes and fill it up!
