Photo holder

Here's the photo holder.  You start with a sheet of 8 1/2 X 11 card stock.  You're going to score it (hot dog way) at 2, 2 1/4, 7 and 7 1/4.  Then I scalloped the longer side but you can do whatever you want with it.  Now you need three # 10 business envelopes.  Seal them up and cut the end of the first one off at 8", the next at 7" and the last one at 6".  Then I scalloped the open end of the envelope but like I said before you can do what you want.  I also used the 1 1/4" circle punch and cut a half circle out of the middle of the open end.  Now take the longer envelope and adhere it to the card stock. 

Then I cut two pieces of card stock 4" X 2".  Fold it in half and use it to make a hinge at the bottom of the first envelope.  Now adhere the second envelope to the hinge.  And then adhere the other hinge at the bottom of this envelope.  And last you're going to adhere the shortest envelope to the bottom of the second one.  Clear as mud, right??

Now you're ready to decorate.  I used DSP on the front of each envelope and a piece of DSP inside each envelope with a ribbon to pull the DSP out of the envelope.  The pictures go on the DSP.  You can use both sides of the piece that is inserted into the envelope.  You can decorate the outside of the card stock and add a belly band to keep it closed.  Hope this all makes sense but if it doesn't then send me an email or bring it over sometime and we'll see what we can do.
