Step 1
Decorate your 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of
cardstock for the front of the card.
Step 2
Slide your front cardstock into the paper
cutter vertically. Line it up with the 3 1/2"
mark and cut from 3/4" to 4 3/4".
Step 3
Take your cardstock out, flip it around and
make the same cut on the other side.

Step 4
Slide your cardstock into the paper cutter
horizontally and line it up at the 4 3/4" line.
Cut from 3/4" to 3 1/2", connecting the two
vertical lines.
Step 5
Take your cutting blade out of the paper cutter
and insert the scoring blade.
Slide your front cardstock in horizontally. Make
sure the short cut is on the left hand side. Line
it up with the 4" mark and score from 3/4" to 3
1/2" (from one cut to the other).

Ed. Note: The following measurements have
been corrected. Thanks for the feedback
everyone!
Slide the cardstock to the 2 3/8" mark and
again score from 3/4" to 3 1/2". Now slide it
again to the 3/4" mark and make the same
score one more time.
Step 6
Lay your front and back piece of cardstock on
top of each other.
Slide them about 1/4" into the circle punch and
punch out a half circle.
Note: Make sure you make the punch on the
side of the front cardstock, where you have a
score on the 3/4" mark, not the cut.

Step 7 (Optional)
Take your 3 1/4" x 4 3/4" piece of
cardstock for the slider part of the card. Wrap
your 1/2" x 7" piece of copy paper loosely
around it and tape the end together. This loop
will keep your slider part stable.
Step 8 (Optional)
Tape your "stabilizer" to the back of your front
piece of cardstock. Tape it right over the the
top score. If it shows through the circle cut out,
just use your circle punch to punch it out.

Step 9 (Optional)
Take your slider piece and cut the top ends off
to create a tag.
You can also leave it as it is, or use the corner
rounder. Whatever works for your card.
Step 10
Tape Sticky Strip" on the left, right and
bottom of the back of your front piece of
cardstock. Also add a strip on the bottom of
the flap.

"stabilizer" loop. Peel off the liner of the Sticky
Strip" on the flap and line the end of your
slider part up with the end of your flap. Tape it
on.
Step 12
Remove the rest of the Sticky Strip" plastic
and line up the back piece of cardstock over
the front piece. Tape together.

Size it differently
Instead of making your long cuts from 3/4" to 4 3/4", cut from 0 all the way to 4". Then make the horizontal scores at
1/2", 2 1/4" and 4" of the flap.
Change your punch shape
Use a square punch or even cut out a rectangle on top instead of the circle punch shown here.
Make it a full card
Start with a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of cardstock. Line cardstock up at 3/4" and cut from 3/4" to 4 1/2". Turn cardstock and
cut the opposite side the same way. Then cut between the cuts on one side, and score on the other. The other score
lines are at 1 1/4" and 2 7/8". The tag measures 3" x 4 1/2".
Pop up a cutout image
Use a cut out image to pop up instead of the stamped piece of cardstock.
