Tunnel Fold Card TUTORIAL





INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Cut an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper at 5.5 on the 11 inch side
(you should have 2 pieces now, 8.5 x 5.5)
2. Score one piece at 2 1/8, 4 1/4, and 6 3/8 inches
3. Fold the second piece in half at 4 1/4 inches
4. Trace or die cut the window shape you want on the first piece with the 3 score marks making sure to center it on the middle score line.
5. Cut out that shape if you traced it, if you die cut it, it will already be removed
6. Line up the hole shape on the 2nd piece and stamp your image through the hole to line it up
7. Stamp any other images, glue on panels, or decorate at this time
8. Fold middle score line up, then fold the last two panels up, like a sandwich and put glue on one side.
9. Line this one up on the left side of the 2nd piece and glue in place
10. Add glue to the remaining flap, and fold the 2nd piece closed so it all meets together!

Winter Whimsy Blog Hop Challenge

Hey Crafters! I am thrilled to introduce the latest series 
in the KoalaTCrafts Digi Collection, Winter Whimsy. 

This release includes interchangeable snow globes with plackards and some adorable pieces to go inside. Some are in a globe already with a mini scene and others can be layered in. The mice, candle & Poinsettias all look fabulous in the globe. And can you say Shaker Card!?! Oh my goodness these are just begging to be made into shakers. Or ornaments. Or, dare I say, Snow Globes! 

We challenges the Design Teams to create a snowglobe for you and they have outdone themselves!  They have done an incredible job showcasing the newest release and some old favorites, too.

Hop along through our designers, subscribe and leave a comment on each before November 20th and you will have a chance to win a prize. Winners announced on this blog Wednesday, November 22nd.
