It's the weekend ...

I thought this weekend, I would talk you through a tutorial ...
Have fun ladies.

To make this card you will need :

12 x 12 cardstock
6.5 x 6.5 pad or 12 x 12 patterned paper
Circle punch
Butterfly punch
Hot glue gun

Trimmer, adhesive, scoring tool [makes life a little easier]

Here you go :

Cut a strip of cardstock 4 inches by 12 inches

Score at 4 inch intervals i.e., three scores

Fold – ink all edges both sides

Cut six squares of paper 3 ¼ inches by 3 ¼ inches

Using your circle punch, punch a 1/3 of a circle into one edge [roughly]

Adhere double sided tape to remaining three sides, centre and adhere to each panel on your card – both sides of cardstock

Cut tags or better still use journal tags, ink edges, punch hole, thread and tie twine and insert into each pouch on your card

Cut a 1 inch strip of cardstock to form a sleeve, ink edges

Cut a strip of patterned paper slightly smaller than your sleeve, ink edges and adhere with double sided tape to your sleeve

Tie thread/ twine around your sleeve and knot or tie a bow

Punch a butterfly from co-ordinating paper

Adhere using hot glue gun so that the glue adheres not only the butterfly but through the twine to hold it in place as well.

Here are two examples of your finished card, all folded sitting in its sleeve.

Now you could embellish your sleeve further, you could write love messages on your tags or perhaps inspirational quotes and send to a friend

Marg has the Kaisercraft paper pads and journaling tags in the shop

I made both cards from one piece of 12x12 cardstock including the sleeves

Happy creating.
