It's Thursday again and the 10 minute card challenge
do each week keeps my mojo going.
Click on each photo to see a larger view
I just had to make one of Jan Farring's Mini Magazine File.
I've seen these being paraded around the web
and put it in the too hard basket because I'd never seen
a tutorial before hers.
She was so correct when she said they looked
confusing but once you've done one
they are easy peasy!!
Here's Blythe's version
I made 13 in 2 hours.
Now I had to alter mine abit because it would
not fit our card size which is slightly larger
than US size. Jan kindly gave me permission
to post up my version of the tutorial.
Ingredients: 1 of 12" x 12" textured cardstock
1 of dsp 1" x 12"
1 of dsp 1" x 5 1/2"
1 of dsp 1" x 4"
Red liner tape
Score 1 1/2"and 6 1/2"
Turn around and score 5" x 7"
Cut the 1 1/2" and 6 1/2"lines up to the 5"mark
turn cardstock and cut to the 7"line
This is what it should look like,
Score the middle piece at 2", 3 1/2", 8 1/2"and 10"
Make a pencil mark 1"up the top part
and 1 1/2"on the right side of the 7" score
Cut that triangle off
Do the same on the other side where the 5"
Cut just a small piece off the middle section
...............and the other side
Make your folds with the middle piece
valley, valley and mountain fold as shown
Fold the 1 1/2"part up as in photo
Tuck the middle piece over like this
Turn around and do the other side, no tape needed for this
Flip over and lay red liner or sticky strip
tape as shown, if you don't use
the sticky strip it will pop open
believe me I was being stingy
with the first one and everything
fell apart LOL
Remove sticky strip backing and hold
the section and shown and slowly
let it stick to the smaller section
Lay it down and smooth it out
...turn over and do the other side
Stick the 5 1/2"dsp to the back of the card holder
you can be stingy here and use the snail
Take the 4"dsp and place it on the back as shown
Lastly place the 12"dsp over
Here are some of the ones I did
ok I skipped lunch to do these
it's now 2.30pm and my stomach is rumbling hee hee
p.s. just moving my creations over from an old blog
