Fun Fold Friday-Buckle Card

Today I have a version of the Buckle card. You may have to stretch your imagination just a little to see why it is called a buckle fun fold. It's about the way you pull the end of a belt through the buckle. To achieve this, you cut a window into the front of the card (the buckle) and create a pull tab (the end of the belt) that opens the card. You will see that motion when you watch my video.

You could use any shape die to cut the window.

Project Measurements

Card base:  5-1/2" x 8-1/2" piece of cardstock scored at 4-1/4" and folded.

DSP: 6" x 5", scored along the 6" side at 2" and 4"

Greeting panel: 1-3/4" x 4-3/4"

Pull tab: 1" x 3"

Watch my video tutorial to see how I made this card.

Seaside Notions Set of 3x3 Notecards in Pizza Box

Hello everyone.
Six years ago, when I started as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and started getting orders, I wanted to include a little thank you card in the product bags.

I have since made several boxes with a set of 3x3 notecards as gifts - sets of thank you cards and gift tags. They make cute gifts for any number of occasions. I love giving them as a host set when invited to dinner.

For this project, I used the Seaside Notions stamp set and the pizza boxes found on page 172 of the Annual Catalogue. They come in a package of 8. They are food safe, good for a baked goodie, chocolates, tea bgas, tea lights, jewellery, etc.

This particular box includes a set of 3 notecards and envelopes. We sell the envelopes as well on page 168.

I decorated the notecards first and then the front of the box. You don't need a belly band but I like the look for something a bit different.

Project Instructions

To make the cards:

Cut a piece of cardstock to measure 6" x 9". Along the 6" side, score at 3" to create the center fold for the cards. Then, along the 9" side, cut into three pieces: cut at 3" and then at 6". Fold and burnish the score lines.

To make the belly band:

Cut a strip of cardstock to measure 1-1/2" x 11.
Score on the long side at 2-1/4", 3-1/4", 6-7/8" and 7-7/8"

Watch my video for the full instructions.

Happy stamping!
