Cut 8 inch square of DSP. The piece I chose has a Baja Blue stripes on one side and a Cajun Craze pattern on the other - lots of contrast.
Using the diagonal scoring plate, make a score line at 3 inches on each side. This will create a small triangle in the center along each side where the score lines cross.
This is the small triangle. Cut away the small triangle to make what will look like a large notch along each side.
The small triangles have been cut out. Remove the diagonal scoring platform and place the DSP in the corner of the scoring platform. Score at 1 inch - JUST ON THE UPPER PORTION. The scoring should stop at the large notch.
Fold on the score mark on all 4 sides.
All 4 sides are folded on the score lines. Flip the paper over and begin folding in each side.
Gently tuck the last section into the other ones.
Sometimes one or two of the corners might not lay nicely. I use a bone folder and press from the center outward.
This is the finished product. I added a small circle with Open on it so the recipient will know to open up the card there.
Here are several that I made. You can adhere this to a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 rectangle
This is the card my sister made. She put it on a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch rectangle and added a strip of card stock and ribbon.
I put this one on a 4 1/4 inch square. Then decorated it with some die cut leaves and linen thread.
Add your sentiment to the inside of the fold. For this one I used the triangles that I cut out of the DSP and put them in the corners of the Very Vanilla square with the sentiment.
