Mini Tutorial :: 3 fold card blank using Sizzix Vintage Cabinet Card Die

I am pleased with how this card turned out as it was a bit of an experiment!!

I have wanted this die for ages but wanted to do something a little different with it

I had a little measure of the die when it arrived and it just so happened that the die cut shape was the width of a 3rd of A4 paper, this dosent often happen as so many things are designed for the american market

So firstly i scored a piece of A4 card int 3 equal sections and folded both of the side in so i was left with a section of A4 card 3 layers thick

I then lined this up in the die so that both sides were just inside the cut line of the die - in this pic you can see that the folds are just inside, but you will need tomake sure the card covers that top and bottom blades on the shape, in the photo mine dosen't but that was so you could see how i lined it up on the sides

This is what it shold look like, you can then decide if you want a zig zag fold or if you want more of a gate fold and then of course decorate it into what ever you want it to be!

Christmas Gift Idea :: Felt Star Decorations

I have been doing a little more christmas making.... Sorry I know its early but I run out of time so quickly in the run up!

I am please with how they have turned out - they are not sewn again as i am struggling with my stitching but i love felt, but i am pleased with how they have turned out and the look quite neat!!

The stars were cut with the new Sizzix Framelits Dies - i love these dies so much!!!

I hope you like the decorations even without the sewing, i think they will look nice on the tree!
