Folded Corners Frame

 




Technique Time (a little late) ... Folded corners frame is a simple technique that has a WOW factor.  It's also a great way to use up scraps of designer paper.  I love the Berry Blessings paper (bundle) which is only available through the end of February by placing a $100 order and getting it FREE through sale-a-bration.

Each rectangle to create this design is 1-3/4" x 2-3/8".  In my video below, I have provided a few tips and tricks to create this unique frame.

Gift Card Holder - side opening

 



Technique Time - This is such a pretty gift card holder that can be used for weddings or birthdays (or any occasion).  The side fold is just a bit different than the usual bottom versions out there.  The tone on tone layers add a bit of elegance to the card.  Below is one in basic gray and white:

Arrow Head Point Card

 


 


Technique time!  The arrowhead point card is becoming quite popular, so I thought I'd give it a try.  It looks very complicated, but it really is not.  The most difficult part is figuring out fractions LOL...when in doubt, use a calculator.

Here is a little guide for measurements in inches and finding the center:

5-1/2 = 2-3/4 half  (base card)
5-1/4 = 2-5/8 half  (designer paper)
4-1/4 = 2-1/2 half  (base card)
4 = 2 half  (designer paper)
3-3/4 = 1-7/8 half (inside white)
5 = 2-1/2 half (inside white)

Below is a video for the instructions.
