When is Squash Book not a book? When it is a card, of course. For today's technique we will take the basic folding premise of a squash book, but turn it into a fun and different card.
For those of you who have made a Squash Book before, this will be simple and very familiar to you. For those of you who have NOT made a Squash Book before (like me), don't let the directions scare you
. I know that many of you have posted before on other techniques saying, "I thought this was going to be so hard, but it really wasn't once I got started"
- well, you are going to be saying that after today too!
What you will need for today's technique:[LIST][*]Designer Paper or cardstock[*]Stamps[*]Ribbon for card closure OR get creative and make a belly band for this card instead[*]Bone Folder[*]A scoring tool (bone folder & ruler - Scor-It - Scor Pal[*]A fearless attitude about learning a new fold
I have provided a step by step visual tutorial, which can be viewed in post #10.
I will continue to get this file uploaded as a PDF as well, since I know that everyone cannot access word documents. Thanks for your understanding and patience.
