It's that time again

It is time for Design Team try outs for The Robin's Nest.

This time I made a card and what is so unique about this block card is that it folds flat so you can mail it.


Start with your colored cardstock and cut one piece 4 1/2" x 12" and cut the second piece 1" x 4 1/2"

Score every 1 1/2 " or at 1 1/2", 3", 4 1/2", 6", 7 1/2", 9" and 10 1/2". Now turn the paper along the short side and score at 1 1/2" and 3".

Now take the smaller piece of cardstock and score it down the middle at 1/2".

Now you are going cut along the lines I have marked with an "X" and remove that area.

This is what it will look like when you cut that area out.


To help you know where to put your glue I have marked a capital A and lower case a and capital B and lower case b. So match the a's up and the b's up and you should have it glued together.


Now take the little piece that you folded in 1/2, which is called the hinge. Put glue on each side of the fold and adhere one side at a time to the block piece. Now it is ready for you to decorate.
