Beautiful sunny Saturday here, just the start of Summer and still lovely almost Autumnlike weather. I like is very much, but I suppose January and February will bring me back to reality :)
A friend of mine showed me a photo of a card a while back and asked me to make the directions on how to make it. Like she thought I could do anything, so I would hate to disappoint, so I did it for her with a couple of wrong starts and eventually got there.
It is very pretty and something very different.
a piece of paper 12 inches x 4 inches folded in half lengthways, and opened up and folded in half the other way, then the pieces cut away from the fold (left in photo above to the fold at the bottom.
then cutting away the bits we don’t want
Take a piece of cardstock/paper 6 inches x 6 inches and cut from 1 1/2 inches up from the bottom on the left to 1 1/2 inches down from the top on the right.
now turn the pieces around so that the long diagonal cut is on the bottom the tallest part of the triangle at the right.
Now measure 6 inches from right to left across the bottom and vertically up, as in the pic below. Do the same to the other piece.
so now you have 3 pieces like this, your folded base, and 2 panels
So now you need to cover the 2 panels with paper and assemble.
Then decorate as you wish, stamp, stick things on, do whatever pleases you!!
Really so easy for something so different, have fun with it.
