Tutorial - Book Binding Card


They're super quick, super easy and can be made in any size you like.
What's not to love about Book Binding cards?


1. Start with a card blank in whatever size and orientation you desire. The only requirement is a single fold along the spine. For the curious, my folded card measures 4" x 51/4" with the fold along the 4" side.


2. Add a second score line on the front of your card, about 1" from the centre fold. You can be flexible here too, depending on how deep a side section you want.


3. Add a valley fold along the score line.


4. Add glue or double sided tape to the area between the two score lines, on the inside of the card. Press the card closed to form a 1" side fold.


5. Time to decorate! Add a decorative panel to the 1" side fold section, taking care not to add adhesive over the score line. I added a double mat and a long, side-ways sentiment.


6. Decorate the main panel of the card as desired. Done!
