|Start with a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of cardstock. Score at 5 1/2". You may also just use a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of cardstock as an option and not have the extra insert for messaging.|
|Cut a 3" x 9" piece of cardstock. Score at 2", 2 3/4", 3 1/2" and 4 1/4" width wise.|
|Add your designer paper cut at 4" x 5 1/4".|
|Add a strip of 1" x 4" cardstock with eyelets, brads, or other type of adhesive. Note: If you use adhesive, JUST use on the immediate sides. However, I would recommend one of the first two methods.|
|Add sticky tape to the center of the smaller strip.|
|Place the 3" x 9" piece of cardstock where desired (I centered it and left a larger margin on the bottom) onto the adhesive strip. The scored section should be on top.|
|Cut 4 2 7/8" x 2 7/8" pieces of cardstock. Cut 4 3" x 3" pieces of cardstock. Embellish the smaller pieces and adhere to the 3" bases.|
|Starting from the bottom, adhere the squares onto the 3" x 9" piece at each score mark.|
|Only use adhesive at the top of the 3" x 3" pieces when adhering.|
|Continue layering the 3" pieces until all four are adhered. The last piece should be at the top of the folded 3"x 9".|
|Add a ribbon or other type of pull to the bottom of the back layer. I also layered a piece of cardstock onto the back, but this is optional.|
|Cut a semi-circle or other shape at the bottom so the card's recipient knows to pull the ribbon.|
|The images will flip (waterfall) as the recipient pulls the ribbon.|
|Add your sentiment to the last back section.|
|I also layered the inside as an option.|
Start with a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of cardstock.
Step 2Line cardstock up in paper trimmer so that the edge of the card is at the 1" mark. Position the cutting blade at 1" and cut from 1" to 5.25". Flip card over and do the same on the other side. Be sure to keep the previous cut at the top.
Step 3Place cardstock onto scoring tool and score along the long side of the card from the edge to the cut line at 1", 2" and 5.25". Repeat on the opposite side. The score marks should look like this.
Step 4Score between cut lines at 4.25". The card should now look like this.
Step 5Fold at the score lines. The first, third and center score lines are mountain folds. The second score line is a valley fold. Use a bone folder to increase the crispness of your folds/scores.
Step 6Once opened, the card should look like this. Now, just decorated as desired!
Here is a visual of the directions. The solid lines are score marks and the dashes are cuts. Note: Click on the photo for a closer view.
That's it! Super easy and fun to decorate.
