Default TLC104 - Criss Cross Applesauce

Good morning, my friends! Criss Cross cards are fun and easy to make! Michelle Wooderson has an awesome sample and the directions are in the description section.

Here is Michelle's card and the directions.

For mini tutorial with photos, click here and then here. It is in posts 36 and 38.

Criss Cross cards was a challenge for a VSN, and you can see all the entries and lots of inspiration here. I am sure that I made one for this challenge, but apparently I didn't load it....have to go look for it or better yet, I'll go make another!


Thank you Beate for the super suggestion! And thank you Michelle!

Please put TLC104 in the keyword section when you upload. If you have an additional keywords, please seperate each word with the comma so the gallery search feature works properly.
Have fun, my friends!

I am going to TRY to play today. It seems like every time I set out to do a challenge lately something unexpected comes up. Hopefully, today will be boring and uneventful!!!

Love, love, LOVE these cards. Should we stick to Michelle's measurements (totally fantastic directions, BTW) or can we play around with the size of the card?

I knew it! I walk away from the 'puter for 15 to get breakfast and come back to find the challenge posted. I need another card for my class tomorrow. Maybe I can work in one of these. Thanks, Beth.

Thanks Beth, this is a technique I did ages ago, and loved it then so I'm sure I'll enjoy giving it another go later on. It's fun and, remarkably, pretty easy to do. Thanks too to Michelle for the excellent instructions...they're so concise and easy to understand. Now to choose what papers and stamps to use...decisions, decisions!

This sounds wonderful! Thanks for the challenge!

Jan, you want to cut the triangles from different directions, one to the left and one to the right, that should work out instead.

You should have two pieces of card folded, you then glue one of the cards on top of the other card so you should now have one card in the middle with two flaps on either side, you then diagonally cut the two flaps, is that clear as mud?

Here's an alternate way to make these.
Cut 2 pieces of cardstock 5 1/2" by 4 1/4". Cut one of the pieces in half diagonally. (photo one)
Move the part labeled B down over part A (photo 2)


Scroll down past the next post to see the second half of my mini-tutorial.

Take part C and flip it so that the back of it is facing up and the widest part of the triangle is on the bottom. (photo 1)

Move part C down over parts A and B. (photo 2)
