Striped Spiral — By: LeNae Gerig

Want an easy way to spruce up the inside of your giant folding cards? Trace the fold lines in the center of the template on a coordinating paper. Cut out, write a greeting and glue to the card center before adding the brad. This makes the inside really stand out!

Supplies:


Instructions

  1. Use a pencil to trace the card pattern and fold marks onto the back of the blue striped paper. Cut out.
  2. Trace the dot pattern on three of the six flaps (every other flap) and color in with the black pen. Pre-fold the flaps, according to the template instructions. Erase any pencil lines from the inside of the card.
  3. Use the template to mark the hole at the center of the card; punch with a 1/16” punch or the tip of your craft knife. Write your sentiment on the inside. Fold the flaps according to the template instructions.
  4. Insert a pewter standard brad through a blue Mini Brad Buddy™ flower and secure though the hole at the center of the card inside. Make sure there is room to fit your flaps under the Brad Buddy™.
  5. For the tag: Trace the tag pattern on the back of the ivory patterned paper. Glue a 1 1/4” strip of striped paper across the tag and trim the paper even with the tag edges.
  6. Trace the mini spiral template onto the back of the blue floral paper and cut out. Fold according to the template instructions. Punch or cut a hole in the center of the spiral, then punch or cut a hole in the tag center and secure the mini spiral to the tag using a blue flower brad.
  7. Secure a mini pewter brad at the top of the tag. Loop a length of floss around the brad and knot the ends. Wrap the loop around the Mini Brad Buddy™ at the center of the spiral card.
