    Q: PaperPixie writes: "I love the Gift Card Wallet tutorial! What would be the measurements if I wanted to make this with 12x12 inch cardstock?"
    A: Great question! For a vertical folder, start at 4-7/8" on the envelope punch board. The finished folder will be 4-7/8" by 6-1/4". For a horizontal folder, start at 3-3/8" on the punch board. The finished folder will be 4-1/4" by 5-7/8".
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Roberta has a tip for the Easel Perpetual Calendar tutorial: "Make the easel half the length displaying only the numbers, and make the stopper on the bottom the month names."
