Another quiet crafting day

Poor Abi is still ill, but at least the tablets seem to be helping, so I am at home caring for her today, whilst she is asleep I am having a quiet crafting day.
Whilst i was blog surfing last night there were a couple of projects that caught my eye & one of them is a mini magazine holder & a selection of card to go in it.I have found two different tutorials & I am going to try both.The first one is for mini cards 3" x 3" in size & was made by Becky at Inking Idaho Becky has some wonderful tutorials on her blog, take a peep at her blog for inspiration.

This mini magazine holder is designed for cards 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

I love both of the designs for these mini magazine files but if i'm truthful the second is the easier of the two to make, but I do love the Love notes cards from Stampin' Up 110195 & they fit the first mini magazine file perfectly.
