Tuesday Throwdown...criss, cross...


For this Sherrod Studio challenge, make a criss cross card.  Keyword:  SSTT20

Now, I know, we are always trying to make our paper stretch. So I came up with a way to make a crisscross card using one sheet of paper.  Get some double sided paper...that is on the heavy side...4.25 x 12 inches. 

Score at 3.25 at each ends. 
Then, cut the corners...on each side...about 2 inches from the bottom to the score lines.

Match corner angles on both sides....

Then, fold in...and you have the envelope...without the bulk. 

You can make a belly band or decorate as you wish.  My finished insert is 5.25 x 3.5 inches.

Get ready b/c Sherrod Studio is getting ready for their April release!
