It's a bird, it's a plane...it's a FLAP card!!

Today's DRS Designs' challenge is to create a flap card. There are several ways to make "Flap Cards." I decided to make one based on this Splitcoast tutorial.





You can decorate the inside of these little cards by using the same decorative paper as a border. As for closures, you can use velcro dots, thin magnets, or Zig 2 way glue. It can work like rubber cement. Adhere a small amount in the 2 areas that will touch. Let them air dry. ONLY THEN do you close the card. It creates a repositional sticky spot...sort of like a post it note. Not only is is a lot expensive than paper thin magnets, but you also don't get the bulk that comes with the velcro dots. See, I bet you learned something new today!

I have never thought of using my two way pen for a closure (and duh!! I use it for "little" masks all the time!!)

Sweet card, Dawn, and what a great way to dress up the inside, too! Great tip about the 2-way glue closures; I love frugal stamping ideas!!
