Added by My Project Ideas Category : Papercrafting&gifts Difficulty : In a Snap (Easy)

My stamp club had a lot of fun making these cute little totes, we filled them funn of candy.
One 3 1/4" x 7 1/2" piece of Cardstock for tote base                                                                One 2 1/4" x 8 1/2" piece of Cardstock for tote sides
  • One piece of cardstock for tote handle **
  • Stamps: From the heart
  • Ink: Riding Hood Red
  • Paper: Riding Hood Red and red glimmer
  • Paper piercing tools, or 1/16" circle punch
  • Strong Adhesive
  • Brads
  • Additional Cardstock to decorate your tote
Step 1
Score 3 1/4" x 7 1/2" piece of cardstock 3 1/4” from each end.
  • Step 2
      Round  the four corners using the 3/16 corner punch
  • Step 3
Use the Dotted Scalloped Border punch along both edges of a 1 1/4" x 8" piece of cardstock to create a handle.
If you'd rather not have a fancy handle or don't have a decorative border punch, cut a 3/4" x 8” strip instead. **
  • Step 4
Stamp and embellish additional cardstock to create your card tote front.
Adhere the stamped and embellished layer to the front of the note card holder.
  • Step 5
Score the 2 1/4" x 8 1/2" piece of card stock at 1 5/8", 2 5/8", 5 7/8", and 6 7/8". This insert creates sides for the holder.
  • Step 6
There are 1” sections on the scored cardstock. Find the center of each, and mark 1/2" down with a white gel pen.
  • Step 7
Use a piercing tool or 1/16” circle punch to make a hole where the handle will be attached.

·Step 8

Apply adhesive to the cardstock
  • Step 9
To adhere the scored strip to the holder, line up one of the short panels with the bottom and the edge of the holder. Then secure the long panel to the back of the holder.
Finish by folding in the remaining short panel. Adhering the panels in this order helps keep the edges lined up.

·Step 10

Attach the handle with brads and bow. Fill with candy or 3x3 note cards.
