Paper Trimmer with a scoring blade OR Ruler and Bone Folder

Adhesive (glue stick and Tombow or other roller adhesive)

Colored Cardstock: (1) 9" x 2"

Step-by-step Instructions:
1)     Fold the 5 1/2" x 8-1/2" neutral cardstock in half to form card base.

2)     Attach the B&T paper onto front of card.

3)     Stamp on the four 1-7/8" x 1-7/8" neutral cardstock squares.

5)     Score the 9" x 2" colored cardstock strip with scoring blade or bone folder and fold along scored lines.
Start at the end of the strip and score at 2", 2-3/4", 3-1/2", and 4-1/4".

6)     Position 3/4" x 4-1/4" colored cardstock strip to the front of the folded cardstock base one inch from the bottom. Glue down ends and fix in place with brads. This will be the horizontal strip.

7)     Slide long side of scored strip under the horizontal strip. This piece will be vertical. Use roller adhesive to attach back of short end of scored strip to front of horizontal strip. The roller adhesive will ensure a strong hold.
