Sweet Filled, Zero Calories

These cupcakes are on a roll this week. The card that we're doing today was featured the night we were up late...Melissa took some pictures of her work room and us working late. Today I thought I would post a quick how to for this card.

What you'll need:
* Strip of cardstock 4 1/4" x 10"
* piece of cardstock 4" x 3 1/4"* piece of cardstock or decorative paper 3 3/4" x 3"
* piece of cardstock or decorative paper 4" x 5 1/4"
* circle punches* edge punches
* stamps for decoration




Directions:
Score long piece of cardstock at 2 1/2" & 5" & fold accordion style

attach cardstock according to picture. It will hang over your first score line.

Stamp and attach decorative elements.I have added a little snowflake on the topper, a well as ribbon to give it a little pop. The tag was made from a little 1/2" strip of paper and using a square punch...by inserting the strip and punching in the corner, the back end of the tag is made. Rather than sliding the paper in normally, I also slid the paper in over the top and under the back end...also at a corner...that's what makes the front point of the tag. I guess I could have just used a pair of scissors...but I am a sloppy cutter and this works great for me.

I hope you have enjoyed this fun and easy fold. Check back tomorrow for another great cupcake card.
