Tutorial and Challenge

While Melissa and I were away at Costa Mesa and CHA we met the most wonderful people and had such a great time showing different tips and techniques. One card that I made was such a hit and I had so many requests to recreate the tutorial online, so here I am...giving you the know how...
Flip Flop Flags

What you'll need:
· 2 pieces of cardstock 5 ½" x 8 ½"
· Acetate strips 1" x 3"
· "Flag" pieces to go at the end of each strip of acetate.

1) Score one sheet of cardstock in half to make your A2 card.

2) Score second sheet of cardstock at 3 ½" & 5". Flip cardstock over and score at 4 ¼". Fold on score lines accordion style.


(*Tip...fold your cardsock away from the score line for a cleaner fold)

3) Line the front of the card (piece scored in half) with the inside of the card (piece scored accordion fold) and attach together. Do the same for the back of the card.
4) Attach each piece of acetate to the inside middle of the card in a staggering formation.
(*Tip...put flag pieces together with your acetate completely covering the tip of your acetate before attaching flags to your card)
5) Decorate as desired.
Now that you have the tutorial, comment and add a link to your flip flop flag card. This is a Rubber Cafe Challenge...so when you upload to a public site, like splitcoaststampers.com, please link back to this tutorial and add The Rubber Cafe and TRCC3 in your tags.
Stamps used for this tutorial were all from The Rubber Cafe...Just My Type K-1160 & Fleuradidy1 I-961. The Scor-Pal is also available at The Rubber Cafe
