 Here are some blinds that you’ll never have to clean or dust. It’s a fun way todisplay tags, love notes, pictures or anything that just right for anyoccasion.For this project you will need:Patterned paper (two or threecoordinating patterns)Card stock for card baseTagsBone FoldersEmbellishmentsTapeThis card base is 4-1/4 X 8”.Are you ready to get started? Good – let’s go.First select the patterned paper youwant to use, as well as two or threeadditional coordinating patterned papers as well (for the blinds)Adhere your background pattered paper to the card front.To create the frame, I used my LongRectangle Nestabilities, however, if you don’t have these, just use your ruler and craft knife to create one.Cut a rectangle that measures 2-3/4” X 5 ½”. Then cut a rectangleinside the paper ¼” from all sides.You may also modify the size of your frame and/or your card,depending on your taste.
After cutting the frame, find the center of your frame and mark both sidesat the center mark. Remember…make your marks on the wrongside of your frame.Continue to make these marks every3/16” working from the center tothe ends. Next cut your slats from your coordinating paper. Each slat willmeasure 1” X 2.5”. The number of slats you will need will bedetermined by the length of your frame.Fold each strip of paper in half-longwise and burnish with a bonefolder.Do the same to the remaining slats.
Apply adhesive along the long sidesONLY of your frame.Begin applying your slats at the bottomof your frame working your wayup, aligning each folded
**make sure when youapply your slats that thefolded edges of your slatsare all facing the same
direction - up.
After you have applied all of your slats, place a piece of tape along the bottom of each slat so that your tags don’t fall through the blinds.
