Fancy Folder Card and Tag Caddy

A friend of mine who sells Stampin Up, showed me a card holder she had made several years ago. I wasn't able to find anything like it online so I used some of the measurements off hers and designed this.  I taught it in my card class. It took a couple sessions to get all the cards and tags made. There are lots of pictures here to try and show it. I probably should have just made a video but here it is.
Here is the front of it closed. There is a little piece of Velcro to hold the flap shut. 

And here is a close up of the flap. I used Stampin Up Mixed Bunch stamp set on these and the matching Blossom punch They are a couple of my favorites right now. 
Here is a side view of the caddy. It holds full size cards, gift cards and tags. 

Here is a picture of it opened up.  I think it is sooo fun. And one you have it down, it isn't too hard to create either
Here are the cards we did for it. Very simple card done with a One sheet wonder. If you don't know about  One Sheet Wonders, it is where you stamp a sheet of paper ( or use printed paper) and cut it up in a way that you use all of it up in a series of cards. I will post the cards individually in another post with a close up of the gift cards. 
And here are the gift cards. They are little 3 by 3 cards. Still using the same set of stamps and punch.
I need to do a few more tags. This was a sample of different ideas for the class. 

I designed patterns for the caddy and the one sheet wonder. I will post it in a future post with more pictures
