Stampin’ Up! UK Card Holder Box Tutorial VIDEO

With a rapidly increasing supply of hand made cards, courtesy of my every growing addiction to making them, I needed storage, and I needed it fast.

Like most crafters, space is precious to us, so I needed something narrow and tall rather than short and wide!

This is what I came up with!
