Every now and then someone asks me how I have done something so I thought that I would start a tutorials page to try and demonstrate exactly how I have done whatever it is I've done. So here it is. Give me a shout if you would like to know something and I will see if I can help.
Square Lacy Easel Card.
have to excuse the bad photographs but I'm using Windows 7 and I
haven't worked out how to edit the photos properly as yet. Things will
improve...they have to! Lol.
1. Cut out two pieces of
card, one measuring 5" x 5" and the other measuring 9.25" (roughly) by
5". The 5" measurements do have to be accurate so that the Martha
Stewart Around the Page Punches work properly.
Using the Martha Stewart Around the Page punch of your choice, cut out
all 4 corners of the square piece of card and 2 of the corners on one of
the narrow ends. Then continue down the sides as shown in the picture below.
3. Now, with the long piece of card, score and crease 5" along from the lacy end and then 7.5 " from the lacy end.
4. Now, neatly trim away the lace from the sides of the short flap up to the crease so that you are left with a laceless flap.
Fold this flap over and apply pinflair glue. This allows you to slide
the other piece of card around to get the perfect positioning.
Fold the card in half so that the lacy edge of the base is facing
towards you, and then place the 5x5 lacy edged card on top of the
pinflair and slide it into position so that it matches up perfectly with
the lacy end of the longer piece of card. (NB. in the picture below it
doesn't look perfectly lined up as the card has raised slighly, but when
pressed flat it is completely matched up).
7. Voila! The perfect lacy edged easel card base.
Go on...give it a go! You know you want to!
