Christmas and children
First of all, I do not know what the plan is. Sometimes it happens. You have one idea, and end up with something totally different.
1. First of all, I am starting with this cute and simply paper pack from Echo Park called Dots and Stripes. This is a cute pack that is compatible. If you decide to get this, I got mine at Archiver's. it comes with tags
and 12 pieces of double-sided papers.
Well, things change. I was going to use the pattern paper as the base, but at this point, I decided to rely on good old fashion kraft cardstock as the base. I am still using the patterned paper, but could not think for the life of me on how to fold the paper after cutting it in half. Time for plan "B", LOL.
Take 8 1/2 x 11 piece of the kraft cardstock, and cut in half, making it 8 1/2" x 5.5". Fold in half. you can use a ready made card blank. This is an A2 card.
Next, I cut a mat, measuring less than the 4.5" x 5.5". Next I cut a strip of the same paper, and this time, I used the other side, attached a piece of ribbon to it, and glue it to the mat.
Now I am stuck. but not for long.
