CURRENT HOSTESS CODE - 3CTEX222. Use this one and not the one on the sidebar. I am having issues with blogger and current unable to edit the sidebar.
I've posted pictures of these two projects before, but now I've decided to add a few more details. This die retires June 30, so don't miss out if you decide you want it.
The bookmark uses the set A Rose is a Rose and the petal card uses Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper (save 25%) and Crushed Curry card stock (50% off). All of these items retire June 30.
In addition to these projects, this die can be used to make large hearts -- either to put on cards or as a little pocket (great for favors, or add a ribbon and hang on the door at Valentine's Day -- don't forget to fill it!). Or, fold up three sides to make an open mini envelope and then attach it to a card with a pull out tag. I also have seen 3 sides folded with the top left open and used as a tea bag holder (you can give to someone this way or attach to a card). There are lots of ideas to use with that, including a set from the new catalog with tea cups and the saying "tea"rific. Don't have pictures to post, but if you're interested, ask me for details.
Left: Bookmark; Right: Petal Card
Petal card open: outside of card.
Petal card open: inside of card.
This is the backside of the petal card when it is folded. Since it folds in on itself (kind of like closing up a box), no adhesive is necessary.
Backside of bookmark: attach the bottom two flaps to the backside of the bookmark. Attach the top two flaps to each other, but don't glue them down on the bookmark. This leaves the opening to put the bookmark over the corner of your page.
