This fine card is a good idea to wrap the little gifts, for gift certificates or how filled with chocolates as a hostess gift.
Look in here, I will show you how to make it.
Cardboard – Short
Paper “book pages”. It must not be too tyndt. Plain smooth cardboard is fine.
SkæremaskineScorpal or falseben / ruler
Blonde and assorted toppings
Cut a piece of cardboard in 12 x 30 cm.
It provides a book that is 12 (height) x 13,5 (width) cm.
You must book by false respectively 13,5 and 15,5 cm. It gives a “back” the book 3 cm.
I use a falseben and groove on my cutter when I folds. I have actually no scorpal etc..
So the book looks like this when it is folded.
Cut the matter and pattern paper for the- and back and back.
It looks nicer out if the book is clad inside and out, but you can do with the outside.
You have to make:
4 matter i 11,5 x 13 cm
4 pieces of pattern paper 11 x 12,5 cm
2 matter i 2,5 x 11,5 cm
2 pieces of pattern paper 2 x 11 cm
Now you need to make “bogsiderne”. Cut 2 pieces of white cardboard in 13 x 20 cm and 2 Pieces in 11,5 x 20 cm.
On “bogsiderne” make false with 1 cm intervals – all 4.
Fold “bogsiderne” in folding.
Difficult all edges, So if you want it.
Now “bogsiderne” collected.
Apply glue to the inside of one end of body pages.
Put a short and a long “bogside” together. Make sure it fits together in the folds, Thus only a fold in each of the other side folds.
Press them well together, so the collection will be as neat as possible. Press the edges together lengthwise, so “bogsiderne” not too high.
Do it with all four corners.
So you end up with a frame like this.
It may well be the must stand a little pressure, while the glue is completely dry, so it is not too high.
Lim matter and pattern paper on the pages of the book and back. Both inside and outside.
If you want to book must be closed with a ribbon, remember to put it firmly under the pattern paper and matter at the- and back.
Lim “bogsiderne” stuck in the book.
To see the book out on the inside now.
To make the edge of the body pages a little prettier, you can glue some lace on. It can also be a punched edge, no cardboard or paper pattern.
Then the book garnish. You can use a stamp here, a picture you have cut out, a text to suit the occasion or something else entirely. The sky is the limit.
Here is the finished card.
And just a picture to.
And from the end.
And another picture.
And then just one last picture.
I hope you have wanted to try out a book cards.
It's actually quite easy and low, and will certainly bring joy to its recipient.
