Card - Tag Fold out card

This is an easy and quick project. This would be a great little card for Easter, Mother’s day, Valentine’s – you name it. You could also easily add this to a scrapbook page for extra photos or journaling. Lots of great potential with this little project. You can use just about any two large tags and just modify the below instructions to fit inside the tags. I used the standard Sizzix Scallop Tag die for my tags. Most all materials used in this project are from Club Scrap ( Time & Space monthly kit.

Supplies needed:

6in x 9in piece of cardstock (for inside fold out part)
(2) large tags – roughly 5in x 3.25in (for the front and back)
Scrap pieces of cardstock or pattern paper
Various inks
Various rubberstamps
Hole punch, standard

1. Cut two large tags using diecut machine or template. Ink edges and rubberstamp if desired.
2. Cut two small pieces of cardstock oh roughly 3/4ths inch by 2 inches and add as a hole reinforcement, punch with hole punch.
3. Take the 6x9 sheet of cardstock and ink edges, rubberstamp designs on both sides.
4. Take that sheet and fold in half on the long side (so on the 6 inch side, folded in half with 2 – 3 inch sections)
5. Take that same sheet and fold twice on the 9 inch side, so you have (3) 3 inch sections.
6. In order to attach it to the tags, fold in half on the long side first, then fold one of the next sections to the back, and the other to the front.
7. Adhere the back of the stack of folds to one tag and the very front to the other tag. Now it should fold and unfold like a little accordion book.
8. Decorate the front, back and inside as you see fit.
9. Add ribbon and you are done.

Good luck and have fun!
