- Paper cutter with cutting and scoring blade
- 3 1/2″ x 10 1/2″ piece of cardstock for card base (here So Saffron)
- one 3 1/4″ square of designer paper….or two if you want different colors on each triangle
- Scissors and adhesive
- Ribbon to close the card
Score the right of the three panels diagonal from inside bottom to the outside top corner.
Then score the left side of the three panels diagonal from the inside top to the outside bottom corner.
Step three: Fold and unfold all your scores.
Take your 3 1/4″ piece of designer paper and cut it in half diagonally.
Step five (optional):
If you want two different designer paper, take another 3 1/4″ square and cut it in half diagonally as well. Be careful in planning the diagonal cut when you have directional pattern on your paper.
Tape your designer paper triangles on your outer card base triangles.
Tie your card shut by running a ribbon all around it and tying a bow.
Stamp your center image.
Step nine (mini tutorial on the spiral punch):
Take your spiral punch and turn it upside down. Slide your cardstock all the way in and punch.
Step ten (mini tutorial on the spiral punch):
Slide your cardstock over until the last punched slit slides into the little guide on the right hand side. Punch again. (I love this punch!!!)
Add extra layers to the main image if needed! Like Jami says….More is More. LOL
Add adhesive only on one diagonal half of the back of your main image. If you add adhesive on the entire back, your card won’t open later.
Tape your main image on your closed card front.
Add embellishments to finish the card.
I am sorry about the different sized pictures. I will have to work on that in my future tutorials.
