Default Anyone else have this problem with buckle cards?

I LOVE to make buckle cards but almost every time I give one to someone, they can't figure out how to open it and I have to show them. Has this happened to anyone else?

I just thought of something. I don't have a Word Window Punch so I just use my paper cutter and make a slit to put the buckle in. Maybe if I use a word window punch it might be easier to notice where the buckle comes out.

At least you're making the buckle cards. I've been putting it off, thinking it would take me too long to figure it out!

I've given out a few and some people get it and some don't. but the window punch makes it much easier.

I don't know if they get it or not. All the buckle cards I've made have gone in the mail.

I've put off making one until I get the window punch. However, there are other cards with different folds that I had to show how to open. Because of that if there is a card with a hidden element as well, I leave a note in the envelope explaining how to use it. I do that with family only. I wouldn't want to do that with just everyone.

They are wonderful and really a lot easier than I thought they'd be! I got carried away and made about 20 of them before I even realized it!
