Cut your Basic Black Cardstock in the following measurements: 5¼” x 8″ (1), 1 7/8″ x 1 7/8″ (4).
Cut your Cardstock in the following measurements: 2″ x 2″ (4), 5½” x 4¼” (1), 9″ x 2″ (1), ¾” x 4″ (1).
Fold the largest piece of Basic black colored cardstock in half, and add some Witches’ Brew Designer Paper that is cut at 5 ¼” x 4” and adhere to the front of the black cardstock card. Also stamp the four black-colored squares.
Step 3 (Optional)
Depending on the style of stamps you’ve selected, color your stamped images with any method you prefer. I chose White craft ink.
Attach your stamped squares to the slightly larger colored cardstock squares with your adhesive.
Next you will need to score your 9 x 2 strip of Tangerine Tango cardstock. Starting at end of strip, score 2″, 2¾”, 3 ½”, and 4 ¼” from the end.
You can then fold along the scored lines and you should have a strip let’s call this Piece A).
Attach the vertical strip (the one which measures ¾” x 4″) to front of card with adhesive.
Note: it is very important that you do not use any adhesive in the middle of this piece!
Next, attach piece A to the vertical strip you just attached to the card front. To do this, slide the longest section of piece A between the vertical strip and the card, making sure to center it in the middle of your card. Line up the very edge of the scored end of piece A with bottom of the horizontal strip and attach with adhesive.
Note: the adhesive placement is very important you do not want to attach the scored side and the longest section of piece A together!
Attach your first stamped image to the bottom 2″ x 2″ space at the scored end of piece A.
Apply adhesive to the scored sections of piece A only, and attach remaining stamped pieces.
Once you’ve attached these pieces, you should be able to gently pull the bottom of the longest section of piece A directly down and watch the stamped images flip one at a time and then slide behind piece A.
Attach brad and ribbon to the bottom of piece A. To do this, simply mark where you want to place your brad with card in the closed position. Then pull the longest section of piece A until it is fully extended. Punch a hole and place brad. Attach brad to ribbon through and tie. Trim ends with scissors. You’re done!
Make and impression one stamp at a time!
