Summertime means no school, and no school means increased probability of impromptu card games. I've noticed that little hands tend to have a difficult time holding cards well and that the resulting card shuffling and frustration can derail a game of Go-Fish with remarkable speed. The solution? Whipping up a super easy, no-cut, no-glue cardholder.
What you will need:
One 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of paper
What you will do:Lay out your paper on a flat surface. Don't worry; it does not need to be wrinkled and messy like the one pictured here in order to make a nice cardholder!
Make two folds in the paper. Fold the top edge of the paper down about two inches, making a sharp crease at the fold. Fold the bottom edge of the paper up about an inch and a half, again making a nice sharp crease.
Turn the paper over so that your folds are facing down. Now fold each side of the paper back about an inch and a half.
Now your paper should look like the one pictured above.
Turn your paper so that the larger fold on the front of the paper is now on the bottom of the paper, facing down. Fold this section of the paper up and back as in the picture above.
Tuck the edges of the folded section of paper inside the little "pockets" created by the folds on the sides of the paper.
