File Folder Card directions
Remember those cute file folder cards created with the Envelope Punch Board I posted earlier at http://www.keenankreations.com/2013/09/create-file-folder-cards-with-the-envelope-punch-board.html? Here’s the step-by-step directions:
At this point, you can trim about 3/8″ off the right side of the front of card to have a lower file tab like the samples at http://www.keenankreations.com/2013/09/create-file-folder-cards-with-the-envelope-punch-board.html. I left it untrimmed to show you another variation 🙂
Make sure you only rotate the card, do not flip it over. You want the plain white cardstock to be on top, patterned paper stays underneath. You want to make sure you’re creating a tab opposite from the first one.
(ignore the dotted lines I drew indicating where to cut the excess cardstock – that wasn’t necessary!)
I left the tabs for this File Folder card the same height. Remember if you want the top tab to be lower, simply trim off about 3/8″ before creating the notches with the Envelope Punch Board. Your File Folder card can also open the traditional way, right side to left, but I think it’s fun to have them open from the top down.
I’ll post the finished version of this File Folder card tomorrow 🙂
