Default Instructions for punched hole notecards

Several people asked how I got the lines of punched holes straight on my 'Just a word...' notecards here and here, so I've written some instructions with photos. The cards are really easy to make - it's just a matter of measuring carefully! The hard bit was working out which measurements would look best, but that's all done in the instructions so I hope it's straightforward!

I've done a card in inches for the Americans, and another in centimetres for us Brits & Europeans!

Let me know if I've missed anything or got anything wrong - it's my first time uploading instructions!

NB: the file size is large, so it will take a few minutes to upoad!

WOW ... time-consuming but fairly easy and moreso because your instructions and photos are clear. As an American friend I appreciate that you included inches!

TFS and ...


Happy Crafting!

Thanks so much for the instrux, Sally!! You did a super job writing these up I just loved your set of cool note cards!! And now I can try my hand at these fun notes myself. Thanks for doing both types of measurements. I may be American, but I prefer to measure in metric units!! So much easier using whole numbers rather than esoteric fractions Thanks a bunch

This is great Sally thanks so much, what an enabler you are!
However, I would just like to say we Brits may have gone metric way back in the '70s but my head still works in inches ... I have only just started using grams (sometimes!!) in the cooking department for goodness sake so there is no hope for centimetres in my craft room LOL ..... only kidding
Really great instructions, much appreciated
