Heidi in the flowers...

Hello everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! here's to starting a new week! My GGF Teri...Big Ideas from a Little Girl...got a wonderful birthday card and so we wanted to try see if we could make it! of course I said I would try it out! So Teri was right...it's a whole 12" x 12" sheet of DP or CS...which ever you decide to use. I used Heidi in the flowers from CC designs, used my oval nesties, colored with my copics, added some bling and used some dazzling diamonds!
it can be a folder or an envelope...Teri's had a pull out card with a GC attached to it...I decided to make it into an image folder to give away! I used my marvy uchida punches and the sentiment from SU.
here's what the inside looks like...
it wasn't too bad figuring out the measurements...
here I go...so on one 12" side...
score @ 3 1/4" then flip and do the other side @ 3 1/4"
then score the other 12" side...
4 1/4", 8 1/2" and 10 1/2"
this side you'll be cutting the score lines up to the 3 1/4" on both sides. so now you have flaps. the top flaps...4 1/4"...double stick tape down together. that is where you can decorate more or put a sentiment or message there...as you can see I have pink CS covering that area.
the second flaps...between the 4 1/4" and 8 1/2" score line...you will fold in diagonally...top corners down...then fold flaps in. this makes it look like an envelope.
then the flaps between the 8 1/2" and 10 1/2" score lines...fold in.
the last flaps...cut off...then the tab that's left (middle) fold on the 10 1/2" score line down. then the bottom corners...fold in diagonally. fold up on the 8 1/2" score line...to make the bottom half of the envelope. You will only be adding double stick tape on that flap that's being folded up.

I hope you can understand what I'm talking about.
thanks for stopping by!
have a wonderful Monday!
