Edit: the giveaway has now been closed & winner picked. Comments still open though, in case of question and stuff :)
Mkay, not quite sure what to call this card other than, a simple card – is it a tri or twofold? Hm. Does the “fold” part for a card mean how many folds there actually is (two here), or how many “pages” (three)? Hm. Someone enlighten me please :p
Regardless, figured I should just do a quick and easy tutorial for today – it’s by no means revolting or anything, I just find it…somewhat cute. More like a tip, kinda.
This card is made outta a 12x6 inch long strip. Simply put – just cut a 12x12 sheet in half.
However, don’t fold it the “usual” way. Fold it like this diagram: Don’t worry if you don’t follow the measurements exactly. Personally I just fold by eyeballing it. (I want a Scor-It or similar though!)
Anyways. Slap a 5x5 (or 5 1/2 x 5 1/2) embellished square in front which will hide your smartass comment/greeting on the shortest flip when closed. On my card it’s just a cute “hooray for you” quote + an adorable little monster hiding behind the square. But I sort of imagine that a snarky/sassy comment would be fun to have on this spot (given that you actually know the recipient that well :p)
Hope you enjoyed this simple card-tip.
Here’s another peek of what’s in the giveaway – you guessed it – Fancy Pants Designs goodies:
A mix of older and newer (My Family! Straight from the CHA-W10 release! :) ) collections :)
To enter this giveaway – just comment away (dunno what to comment? How about suggesting a book to read for me? :) And while I´m on the topic of books, let me just declare that I *love* Neil Gaimans penship (penmanship?). Check him out if you haven´t already.)
Thanks a lot for playing along, and come back tomorrow for the last tutorial before the drawing of the giveaway on Thursday ♥ :) (and if you haven’t entered the giveaway before, feel free to check out the other posts – scroll down :) )
And yeah I love reading all the comments ♥ to those of you who commented on my worktable – yes – it’s cluttered and messy. I’d like to say it’s because it’s small, but it’s really not – my whole part of the office (shared office w/hubby & the kids, where I have 1/2 part of it and they the rest) is terribly, embarrassingly messy *blush* My excuse? “Hey, I’m actually using this space, that’s why it shows”. It’s a poor excuse though :p
And using mailtape as grownup-bangles - that´s an awesome idea (not sure why I didn´t think of it myself), I´ll have to check it out asap - thanks! :) And yes – I’m a Fiskateer – and that scissor is one of my total tool-faves!!! ♥ ♥ ♥ :)
