Mini magazine file card holder

Usually I don't spend a lot of time on You Tube or checking for tutorials unless I'm looking for something specific, but this was shared on facebook and I had to check it out. {Here's the link to the tutorial I followed at Muse My World blog}. It holds easily 6 invite sized cards and envelopes, and could probably hold two more even with lumpy ribbons and embellishments. This is just the cutest presentation. I don't have a cellophane bag to put this in right now, but I would suggest you put this in a bag then tie the ribbon around it before gifting. Isn't it so cute though!

For my set of cards, I used Imaginisce Lucy Bird pattern papers, stamp sentiments by My Creative Time, and the faces are all Peachy Keen stamps; Lifestyle Crafts nesting squares, Lifestyle Crafts nesting lacy circles, Lifestyle Crafts nesting circles, and various Quickutz dies.

And last but not least, my favorite of this set! I think this came out so cute, I'm really proud of this one!

Stamped sentiment, dotted frame and wings are all by My Creative Time. Guitar is from the Everyday Paperdoll Cricut cartridge. I stamped the wings on clear plastic from some stamp packaging using Staz-On ink and adhered with a couple of tiny dots of Glossy Accents.

I love how the ribbon and bow treatment came out! I wish the hot pink bling on the hot pink flower showed up better in the photo, but I guess you can't have everything.

If there is any specific die you'd like to know more about, please feel free to email me. I used way too many different things this week to list individually, but I'll be happy to give more info by email. Thanks for coming by today. I hope you'll try this adorable mini magazine holder gift box!
