Hi and happy Monday to you all, and for those of us who live in the USA, Happy Memorial Day.
The TLC for today is such a fun and easy one that I'm willing to bet that you end up making more than one of these cuties.
I guess I'm a little behind the times and don't peruse the gallery as much as I should, because these hinge cards have been showing up all over, but hadn't seen them until I was cruising blogland and ran across Wendy Weixler's blog and video tutorial for these simple and fun cards. So, if you're like me and haven't seen these Hinged Cards, I hope you will be thrilled to give them a try. You can view Wendy's tutorial by CLICKING HERE.
If you have already seen these cards, but haven't tried one yet, now is your chance. Just so that you have a reference before you go to view the tutorial, the following is a list of the different card stock pieces that you will need for this project:
1 Base - 4-1/4 X 5-1/2"
1 Bottom portion: 4-1/4" X 3-3/4" (before punching a border) If you don't plan to use a border punch this size would be 4-1/4" X 3"
1-Accent piece, if desired: 1-1/4" X 4-1/4"
Top half (the part that hinges) is 4-1/4" X 3
1 brad for the hinge
