Default Folding Birthday Book aka Exploding Card

There were some requests for directions for making this book:

http://gallery.splitcoaststampers.co...cat=500&page=1

So I have attempted to write the instructions. I don't have a scanner to draw out the pictures, so hopefully it makes sense. You can share these instructions because I am sure they are out on the web someplace, although I couldn't find them anywhere. The corrected word attachment is below.

I'm having a bit of trouble with the folding. I can't seem to get the outer two solid squares to come out on the outside. Therefore my ribbon is screwed up. I need more of a visual. Your card is great and I CASED it for a 50th birthday gift with the Going Out of Style set. Now if I could get it folded.... Gail Y

fourchildren,

The attachment is on the first post and says:

Folding card aka Exploding card.doc

If you have Word you can open the file, save, and print it.

HTH,
Valerie

Hi 11Valerie11!

Valerie:
Thank you so much for the directions for the "exploding card". I downloaded them and just made my daughter a wonderful birthday card. I was so worried about whether or not I could fold it but your instructions were perfect!!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I can't wait to give it to my child! Patti
P.S. I would upload my card but it is too big for my scanner!
