Take a 8 1/2 x 11 piece of CS. It will be "landscape" style (wider than tall). First fold, 2 inches from the bottom. Second fold, in half. While folded in half, cut the upside down V in the bottom 2 inches. Adhere the side of the bottom two inches with mono (put close to edge). Punch 4 slots for the ribbon - Start in the first slot (from behind - which would be the front of the stationary holder) - thread ribbon through first slot on left - then through middle slot - then back in through the next middle slot - and finally out through the right hand slot. This will allow the ribbon to hold the cards on the inside of the holder. Decorate the outside of the holder as you please....tie ribbon to close. Warning - too many cards will pop the mono - so do not overstuff. Looks nice with a matching rsvp pen.

I was so impressed with the first holder I saw while going through the gallery I wanted to look at all your other posts. Thank you for posting the directions. I can hardly wait to get down to my stamp room.
Thanks again. Great job.

Thanks for posting this. I will make this as a hostess gift for my first workshop. :D (Quick question on the RSVP pen - did you just put the stamped roll of paper inside it or did you stick it on the outside of the barrel?)
