Tuesday TTT (Tools, Techniques, Tips)!!

Hi Bev here today for Tuesday TTT to share some tips with tutorial on how to make this cool but easy card. 

The card above was used as inspiration to make my card below. It was from Pinterest and The Little Blue House

Created by Bev Code

It didn't come with full instructions so here are my tips/ tutorial on how to make my card below with some alterations. 

The card base is 5x5" folded. 
Use 4 1/2 x 4 1/2" accent cardstock base. 
Cut 4 1/2 x 4 1/2" blocks the same and use double sided paper - cut x2

I didn't twist or angle mine like the sample but you can. 

Glue the accent cardstock onto card base centering it. 

Fold the other 2 pieces into quarters and slice almost all the way to centre (1/2" out from centre core) on the curled piece and almost to centre on the folded piece. 

On one, roll a pencil at the corners to roll the edges. 

On the other fold flat to meet in the centre. 

Glue the rolled one down first putting glue only through the centre section of the 4 wings. 

Now glue the folded down piece inside the rolled ones. 

Add button, brad or gemstone centre or any accent you have. 

Close up below shows side view of the depth of the layers.

You have all month to complete your project. You also have the option of doing either 1 Layout (you can make a smaller version of this and put as an accent on a layout), 2 Cards or 2 Tags or 2 ATC's (using even smaller versions of them).
