Your How To Homemaker is addicted to crafting of all sorts so you will see crafts here from time to time. I'm seriously addicted to making these cards. They are soooooo much fun and simple too.
I've made all these just using scraps of scrapbooking paper. How thrifty is that!
You start with a piece of paper that is 5" x 10".
You are only going to make one straight cut in the paper and the rest are five little folds. On my diagram, the cut is done where the solid line is an the folds are the dashed lines.
The cut is made 2" in from the left side of the paper. The cut starts 1" down from the top and goes to 7 1/2" down.
The scores are made at 1" down, 2" down, 3 1/2" down, 5"down, and 7 1/2" down.
Fold the paper as shown here.
The two pieces of paper below are actually the same size 5" x 10". The photograph just makes the left one appear smaller.
Embellish your cards as desired. I used my Cricut machine and cut some shapes. Just in case you are interested, for the birthday card I used the Sweet Treats cartridge. For the 4th of July card I used the Stand and Salute cartridge, and for the Hope card I used the Home Decor cartridge.
Give the stairstep card a try. I think after the first one you will be hooked!
One more thing Friends. I'm still feeling like a little fish in a big pond here, new blog on the block feelings. Would you be so kind to tell others I'm out here so people can find me. Could you write and let people know where I'm at here on the web or grab my button. I'd also be very happy to do a guest blog post on your blog with a homemaking tip.
