easel cards for Anyone 4 Anya Challenge


I went online to see how to make an easel card
but I wanted to make a 12x12 one

since I majored in math in University I should have been able to figure this out no prob...it took me awhile lol


but here it is

step 1 cut paper 12x6

step 2 cut one 12x6 in half so you have a 6x6

step 3 score the second 12x6 at 6 inches

step 4 score it again at 9 inches then

step 5 fold in half

step 6 then fold it up at 9 inches

step 7 glue 6x6 from step 2 on top of the upturned edge at 9 inches from step 6
step 8 decorate












My card represents cookies & cream...Oreos :) my fav...double stuffed :)
thanks for comin by

Awesome card! I just learned how to do an easel card myself, and I can't wait to make one. I'd love to come over and organize your room :) I wish we lived closer!

So funny to see what kind of food all the ladies see in their papers! And for me it is fun to guess what foodcombo it will be before I read. I think it's a fab challenge!

Was wondering what you had in mind...didn't think of oreos, LOL!

Love from AFA?!

What a great job on the Easel card. I am so loving making them as I was a newbie to it also until a couple of weeks ago.
