I've had someone ask how these are made. Here are the directions. I hope it makes sense!
Take an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock, and score it in half (5 1/2"). Then turn the cardstock a quarter turn, and score at 2 1/2". Fold this score line up. This makes one long inner pocket. Cut along the scoring line in the middle of the pocket and cut to the other scoring line. This separates the two pockets. Then make a small diagonal cut along the inner side of each pocket. This helps the stationery holder close better. Punch a hole on each side of the holder. First, punch the hole on the left side, going through the pocket and the front cover. Close the holder. Punch through the existing hole to punch the holes in the right pocket & back cover. This will make the holes be aligned so the ribbons meet correctly. Add ribbon, and tie together to close.
