Bind It All Card Organizer

Bind it All Card Organizer




























Here's a quick and easy card organizer you can make using a few sheets of card stock, some Embellishment Papers, a Bind It All, and chipboard.

  • Cover your chipboard with your embellishment paper, then punch your holes with the Bind It All
  • To make the inside pockets - use a piece of 9 3/8" x 7 13/16" card stock. Score 2" up from the bottom to create your pocket. Score 4 11/16" in (from the 9 3/8" side) for your middle score. Fold in half, fold your 2" pocket up. Adhere your Embellishment Papers to the 2" area if desired. Then place into your Bind It All and punch. Repeat as desired for the number of pocket pages you want for your book
  • Add coil binding. I used a 3/4" coils for my book - I added 4 pocket pages
  • Embellish the front cover as desired

ETA - Melissa asked "does each 9 3/8 x 7 13/16 sheet make one single sided pocket or one double sided pocket? Oh my I have another question, which side do you put into the coils; the folded side (which would then open up or the other side which would ensure a single page)??? "

Hopefully this visual will help you out - out of your 9 3/8 x 7 13/16 you will have created 2 pockets when scored - you'll punch the BIA holes on the open side (remember to have all your scores in place before punching - this way you are punching through all layers at the same time)

I just bought my BIA last week (I don't even have coils for it yet!) Your card organizer is beautiful! I do have a question for you. . . . (I am so visual)does each 9 3/8 x 7 13/16 sheet make one single sided pocket or one double sided pocket? I read it like it makes one single sided pocket. But it seems that if you folded up the pocket first the folded in half you'd have a double pocket.

Oh my I have another question, which side do you put into the coils; the folded side (which would then open up or the other side which would ensure a single page???

Oh my, I just wish you were close enough for me to come to your classes and see for myself! ;D

I've posted a visual to help you out in regards to the pockets and the punching of the BIA.

what a great little project! this BIA is becoming quite useful in many projects. TFS! BTW, I picked up the Sept. issue of TRS last week and caught your gorgeous background stamp in there. I was oohing and aaahing over how pretty it was when I saw your name beneath it as the designer. Nice work, very nice:)
