REMEMBER: You can click on any of the pictures to make the image LARGER - if you are having trouble reading the details of the pictures.........
Step 1: Start with a 8" x 8-15/16" piece of cardstock. (I started out with plain white cardstock and created a pattern/guide that I'm able to use over and over again each time I wanted to make this little cutie. This also gives me the opportunity to make mistakes on the plain white sheet of cardstock and not use up any of my favorite cardstock or DSP with a ton of mistakes that I might make with wrong measurements or score placements.)
Below is a picture of what those score lines will look like. Those score lines are marked as black dotted lines:
This picture above shows where I have cut off 1/4" from each end of this section.
Here's a close-up of what that 1/4" piece looks like that you will be cutting off.
Score at 6-1/4" and also at 1-1/2" (only make the score lines in this center panel section. Don't start at the top of your cardstock and make your score line all the way up your cardstock. You will only be scoring in this little panel section that I have the yellow post-it-notes indicated below).
Step 7 : You are now going to cut the angle line for the shape of your mini magazine holder. You will measure down 2-1/2" and put a tick mark with a pencil (this will help you position your paper into your trimmer for cutting purposes) and you will also measure in 2-1/4" across the top and put a tick mark with a pencil (this again will help you position your paper into your trimmer for cutting purposes).
You are now ready to begin assembling your Mini Magazine Holder.......
Step 11: Apply Sticky Tape to all FOUR flaps as pictured below. I have marked where your Sticky Tape goes in RED! (DO NOT PUT STICKY TAPE on the middle flap section as this is going to be the center of your Magazine Holder - and ultimately be where your 3"x3" note cards will be going)
Step 13: Go ahead and FLIP your Magazine Holder back over so you are working from the side that has Sticky Tape applied to the four flap sections........You will now begin assembling your Mini Magazine Holder.
REMOVE the redline backing off the two left hand side flaps and.........
Start out by folding up your 1-1/2" bottom flap section and begin securing your flaps that have sticky tape to this bottom flap section. Do this one side at a time.
Start out by removing the redline packing to the last two Sticky Tape sections that you have on the inside walls of your Mini Magazine Holder. You are now ready to move on to Step 13 - the final step of your Mini Magazine Holder.
Slide your angled top section down to meet the wall that has Sticky Tape exposed and adhere that flap to form the wall of your magazine holder.
Here is what it's going to look like once you have it secured and pressed into place.
Repeat the above process to the Right hand side of your Mini Magazine Holder.
