Pop Quiz Report Card Holder

   Bo Bunny's Pop Quiz I want it all bundle is so perfect for all of your academic needs!! I came up with a report card holder to hold all of my son's 6th grade report cards from this year. I can't believe in just a few months he'll be graduating from elementary school and going into middle school. But with this bundle I'll definitely be prepared, at least creatively.

      1. Cut the Study hall striped paper at 6.5" X 5". Use the Tim Holtz paper distresser around all of the edges.

2. Glue striped paper onto the red library paper and cut around the edges with a zig zag decorative scissor. Finish the edges with Distress Ink (black soot).

3. The black paper that comes in the ephemera package was just the right size for the back of the pocket. I just had to trim about an 1" and 1/2" from the end, and then used the paper distresser on all of the edges. Put aside until the next step.

4. Now get your striped piece and hand stitch a line 1/4" from the top, using black embroidery thread. Stitch another line 1" away from the first one. 

5. Before you do any more stitching, glue just the ends of the bottom and 2 sides onto the black distresssed paper, making sure to leave the top open for the pocket. Now you can stitch 1/4 " away on the bottom and sides.

6. Right under the second stitched line from the top I applied the ruler and pencil that comes in the layered chipboard. Under that I pulled some of the gingham ribbon, that also comes in the ephemera package, through the A+ button. The top progress report also comes in the layered chipboard, and I backed it with the hallpass paper, taking the same decorative scissors to the edges to make the zig zag border. Then I added my son's name with a red Sharpie. The final step is to add those report cards to the pocket.
