Thank You giftie

Since I am a  crafter I would LOVE getting a little giftie like this.  Not much really, only an 8x8 piece of paper folded but it is so cute!



I used paper from the Dotty For You collection.  To demonstrate the fold, I used plain photo copy paper...

1)Fold your 8x8 paper top to bottom and side to side so that you have 4 smaller squares:

 2)  Fold the lower right corner in toward the center.
 3) Fold lower left corner in toward the center.
 4) Using your horizontal fold, fold the large triangle to the top of your card.
5) Fold the tip of your triangle down so that it sets at the "bottom" of your card. This tip of the triangle can be folded into the pocket as well.  Secure this fold with adhesive.  Do not apply adhesive to the pocket BEHIND, as this is where you can place your tags :)
 6)  Now you have the bones of your card.  Embellish as desired.  I cut flowers with the AP cartridge and embellished a tag as wells the cover.

My Sunshine

The Dotty For You paper is such happy paper.  It makes me smile.  I wanted to start creating the moment I got it. The first artwork I created is based on sketch 25  found on Sketch Support.



This paper won't be available until April 17th... but it will be worth the wait.  I promise!
