cards are a fun alternative to your traditional cards that open with a basic
flap. And they are not hard to make! Here's how:
2 – 4 ¼ x 11” pieces of cardstock for base
1 or 2 – 4 ¼ x 5 1/2” pieces of B&T paper (different/contrasting colors)
1 – 3 ¾ x 5” piece of cardstock for insert
How to Build the Card:
1. Score both 4 ¼ x 11” pieces of cardstock at 5 ½”.
2. Make a diagonal cut from top of scored area to bottom of edge on each of the pieces.
3. Overlap the 2 pieces of cardstock with triangle sides to the outside.
4. Using adhesive (double sided tape or glue) stick rectangle pieces together.
5. Cut the 4 ¼ x 5 ½ ” B&T paper diagonally (corner to corner) You will have a triangle left over for another project.
6. Adhere the triangle B&T paper to the outside of one the triangular flaps.
7. Open up triangular flaps – place thin double sided tape or memories glue on bottom edge of center and triangle flaps
8. Fold one flap into center and them fold in the other one
How to Make the Insert:
1. Take the 3 ¾ x 5” piece of cardstock and stamp/decorate as desired. On this sample, I sponged the edges with ink. You can also make a smaller insert and layer it. You can also make a tab on the top to pull it out with. Get creative!
2. Stamp or write on the insert. These cards make perfect party invitations, baby announcements, or notecards!
