This makes a cute gift but it gave me fits to create. You see, I am not good at math and I could not get my printer to print the template that was on Melanie Schulenburg's blog PocketsofInspiration. So I had to keep starting and stopping the video when it came to scoring and cutting lines. But with my hub's help, I finally got it complete and was able to decorate it. The only reason I really gave this one a try is because Beate Johns featured it on her fresh & fun spot and I thought it's soo pretty I have got to give it a try. But as I said, I could not get the template to print actual size. It does not allow me to set a specific paper size other than the normal sizes. So 8.5 x 12" is out of the question and 8.5 x 11" is too short.
Beate did have a terrific idea for the flap at the top and I thought I had worked it in but when I got to the step where you fold and close the top, I didn't cut my cardstock long enough. No worries though, I just cut a little piece 1 1.5" and glued it on and then punched the corners round and called it a day. I love it! I will attempt again but I think now I have a better idea AND, I can easily take this one apart and use it for my template. FYI to Melanie & Beate, one of you could have added measurements for score lines!!! Heeheehee.
Thanks ladies for the inspiration.Thanks for Looking!
