minimagholdersWell I found these gorgeous little boxes on Becky Roberts blog and are just sooo cute I had to make more than one!3x3minimagholder

How cute are they??

The tutorial on Becky’s blog is for the smaller box designed to hold 3×3 cards or love notes. Although it will hold small note paper or post it notes as I have done here – I even found these small mechanical pencils while doing the ‘back to school’ shopping that fit perfectly in them too!

I am not sure about you but I find the 3×3 cards or love notes too small to send as a card but they do make wonderful gift cards.

4x4minimagholderI really like to make little 4×4 cards – they are just that little bit bigger and a size I feel comfortable in sending as a card so I adjusted the measurements on the mini magazine holder template to fit 4×4 cards in.

You can also get 4 cards from one sheet of 12×12 cardstock too so they do work out a little more cost effective.

This is my larger version which I’ve done in Pretty in Pink Cardstock with a piece of Berry Bliss Paper around the bottom and finished off with Pink Taffeta ribbon.

As you can see this size fits the 4×4 cards in it perfectly.

I will be having a class here at my place on 25th February where you will make one of these holders and 4 cards to go inside so if you’d like to come and make these cards then please drop me an email or give me a call to book your spot as places are limited.

Pop back tomorrow to see the cards I made for inside the holder.





  1. Hi Leonie,

    Love stampin up and joined as a hobby however unfortunately can’t afford it any longer.

    Still buy of course lol.

    I’m in Adelaide,
    I can appreciate how you would want to do this as a class and generate sales etc – and not publish how to make it.

    I would really love to make this for a friends daughters birthday this weekend who has requested anything stationery and anything to do with horses lol bless her little 7 year old socks 🙂

    I do not own a blog and while I am on face book I do not post other people’s work or reveal unless given permission.

    I wondered if you would consider emailing me the details in how to make this?
