First step is to take a 12X12 piece of cardstock. Mark the center on one side (6") on the edge and then about 2 inches down. Draw a line between them. Then measure from each corner to the line drawn where the end of the ruler touches the line. If this is done correctly you will have a triangle with all sides measuring 12 ".
Cut out triangle. Measure to center point (6") on all sides of the triangle. Then draw a line connecting the points. You now have your center triangle.
Next measure 2" from the points of the interior triangle on all sides.
Score on the center triangle lines and the 2" marks.
Tuck the ends of the cards into each other. Now you have a star fold card ready to decorate.
Measure the edges of your inside triangle to determine what size your strips of decorative paper need to be. You will want to cut them a little smaller so they will fit and have a border around them. I chose 2 designs from the KandCo. Classic K. Bailey Stack.
You will need 6 strips of paper measuring in the neighborhood of 5 3/4" X 1 3/4". Make sure before you cut them. Lay each one on the 2 " strips to find the points at which they need to be cut to fit the panels.
Cut between the marks to form an angle.
Place 3 of the strips on the outside of the card and 3 on the inside of the card.
On a coordinating piece of designer paper, trace the end triangles. Cut inside of the lines to assure fit and a little border around the piece of paper.
This is your card before any more embellishments. Now you are ready to decorate to your heart's content. I will show you what I did but you can do anything you like.
I used Mother's Day Bouquet to cut out these flowers. I used 3 different types of flowers and staggered them. I cut them at 1", .9, and .8.
Again, this is the finished product. I hope this makes sense and you will give this a try. Thanks for dropping in today. We appreciate your visits and comments. God Bless You!!! Peggy
