- One piece of cardstock 4″ x 11″ long (here Cool Caribbean)
- Paper cutter with cutting and scoring blade
- punch to make window (here 1 3/8″ square punch)
- slit punch
Score your cardstock at 3 1/2″ and 7″.
Prefold your scores.
Slide a punch of your choice into your center panel and punch a window in the center of that panel.
Stamp your center panel.
Add additional framing around your window if wanted.
To make this frame, I first used the same square punch I used to make the window in the card front on black cardstock. Then I lined my Marvy scallop punch up around the punched out square and punched out the frame.
Stamp your center image and layer if necessary.
Add adhesive on the back of your main image.
While holding your card and your main image, center the image behind your window.
When the image is centered, fold your right card panel over to adhere the image to that part of the card.
Fold your left card panel over. Slide your slit punch in so that the half circle is a little under the card fold. Punch your slit.
The half circle of the slit punch will keep your card closed.
If you would like to add ribbon, punch a hole in the half circle of your slit punch. Just make sure the hole is not hitting your fold over card.
Thread your ribbon through the hole and tie a bow. You are done!
Have fun with it! Play around. Add a second slit punch on the top. Just tie ribbon through the hole and not around the card. Change the measurements…..Anything goes. These are so much fun!
