- piece of card stock that measures 29cmx12cm. Start with A4 card stock and use the remaining piece to stamp or images to the center piece.
- Ruler, pencil, rubber sharp craft knife, bone scorer and craft mat.
- Double sided tape or roller glue.
- Stamps and embellishments of your choice.
1) Measure and mark a dot on each long side of the 29cmx12cm card stock. Start at edge and measure in 1.5cm, then from that dot measure and mark a dot at 4.0cm. Continue along from each dot marking dots at 2.5cm, 4cm, 25cm, 2.5cm, 4.0cm, 2.5cm, 4.0cm and lastly at 1.5cm.
2) Score along all marked dots. Rub out dots.
3) Bend center scored line so it is a valley fold. Bend all other scored lines to make mountain folds. If you want to colour the card stock, stamp or apply rub ons do so now.
4) Apply glue or tape only to each 1.5cm end.
5) Fold each side over to ward back and press the glued area in place. Leave front center part unglued.
6) Decorate you cut off card stock from the A4 card as desired and cut it down to fit in the slot you created above. Now apply glue to both sides of the slot.
7) Press decorated piece onto one side of glued area and then press other side against that
here is the completed card from the side.
These can be folded flat to fit an envelope after you have completed them. If ANYONE wants this or any other tips and techniques I have shared on my blog, in a word document please just e-mail me (address at right) and I'll send that too you. :o). You can adjust the 12cm width to smaller or larger proportions to suit your needs.
