Card File Tutorial

This tutorial was originally posted sometime back in Dec. of 09. During a few scrapbook conventions, I had demonstrated the Ultimate and ways to make this fun card file box. Several customers wanted an update on the original tutorial to include the Ultimate.

What you'll need:
· 12" x 12" cardstock or decorative paper
· The Ultimate from Crafters Companion
· The one and only tape or glue
· Embellishments (a great way to use up your scraps)

1. Score your cardstock at the gatefold 12x12 line and half-fold 12x12 line

2. Turn your cardstock 1/4 turn and score at the gatefold 12x12

3. Turn your cardstock 1/2 turn and score at the gatefold 12x12
4.Using any score line, score diagonally on each of the top two corners as shown

5.Trim off each corner with scissors or trimmer

6.Cut into each score line, below the diagonally cut corner, up to the intersecting score lines as shown

7. add adhesive and decorate. (here I used our One and Only adhesive)

Files can be made to show birthdays or holidays. This is also a great box for scrapped recipe cards. To make your box sturdier, add a little extra cardstock around the inside of your box. This gives it a finished decorative look but also sturdies it up a bit.
The stamps used in this tutorial are
Middle box right: Small Trailing Butterfly
