I was playing around with a folded card like the "seal a note" kind of things. The top flap opens up and the bottom flap opens down to reveal the inside of the card. I did a slit punch & square punch closure, which I will try to explain with the dimensions for placement.
This is the inside view:
Card is 5 1/2 inches wide by 10 1/4" tall.
Top flap is scored 2 3/4 down from top edge and corner rounded.
Bottom flap is scored 3 1/8" up from bottom edge.
Middle piece, between the scores, is 4 1/4" tall.
When folded, it fits into a regular envelope.
The square punch is punched about 13/16" up from the bottom edge and in the center, side-to-side.
The slit punch is punched when the top flap is folded down (to give a frown look on the outside of the flap and a smile look on the inside, which is shown here). It is punched about 13/16" from the edge of the top flap to align with the square punched opening.
When closing, push the notch of the slit punch into the opening made by the square punch. The bottom flap closes in first and the top flap closes over it, secured by the slit punch. Hope this is clear!
