Back to School? and a tutorial, too.

 
It's Day 14 of our 25 Days of Crafting.  Wow! two weeks of fabulous crafting ideas already!
 
  Remember that the My Paper Crafting designers are sharing projects for the holidays and events and celebrations throughout the year.  Today we're featuring September projects.  I used today's FREE digital stamp to make a hand sanitizer holder which could be used as a Back-to-School gift and I also created a card using the FREE vintage graphic. You'll also find a quick tutorial on how to make the hand sanitizer holder at the end of the post.
 


 
If you visit My Paper Crafting you'll see even more September projects as well as the links to the FREE downloads which include the digi and graphic I used here along with a FREE Cutting file.
 
I read the directions for making the Hand Sanitizer holder at Paper Desserts.
I did adjust the measurements to better fit the Bath and Body Works product I used.
 
Here are the two sizes of paper and where you need to score.  The 6x2 is scored on the long side in 4 places and then turned and scored at 1/4 inch in from each side (difficult to see)
 
The x's indicate the sections to be cut off.  The center was punched with a 1inch punch and then I moved it 1/4 inch to the right and punched again.  This opening will depend on the size bottle you use.  I used Bath and Body Works Sanitizer mini. You might need to use an oval punch.
 
Fold and crease all the scored lines.
 
Ahere the two sections.
I used one-sided patterend paper (DCWV School Stack) for my holder (see above).  I also adhered Baker's Twine to the back and brought it around and tied it to keep the box closed.  You could use velcro instead.
 
I'm going to make a few more for stocking stuffers using Christmas paper.
