I love to find unique gifts and enjoy making cards to coordinate. Today’s birthday card and bookmark is one I made for a friend who loves books and tea. The Cup of Tea Bundle and the “book binding” fun fold was the perfect choice for the occasion. I used some retired DSP (to coordinate with the gift). You can easily substitute a pattern from the Tea Boutique 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper or any from your “stash”.
Here are the dimensions to make this quick & easy book binding fun fold:
- Card Base (Cherry Cobbler): 11 X 4-1/4, score at 4 1/4 & 5 1/2
- Card Stock Layer (Basic Black): 4 x 4, 1 x 4
- Designer Series Paper (retired Sale-A-Bration): 3 7/8 x 3 7/8, 7/8 x 3 7/8
- Inside Layer (Basic White): 4 x 4
Adhere Tear & Tape (or other strong adhesive like Multipurpose Liquid Glue) along the 1 1/4 score line from the fold allowing the card to open like a book. I stamped the tea cup in Memento Black, the stems in Pear Pizzazz, the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler, then die cut each with the coordinating dies. The lemon is die cut from a scrap of Crushed Curry and the flowers I fussy cut from the DSP. I found the Novel Tea bags on Amazon…they are so cool as each one has a quote from a novel.
I like to let the card decorate the gift package. Simply adhere a clear envelope to the front of a bag and slide the card in. Add some tissue paper and it’s done!!!
I plan to use this quick & easy fun fold design to make cards for all my book club friends! Let’s have some fun….What’s the last book you read? I have been on a Taylor Jenkins Reid binge lately….Love her books! Just finished Daisy Jones and the Six (excited to watch the limited series coming out in March)! Also loved The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, Malibu Rising and more!!!! Leave a comment below sharing a good book you’ve read lately for a chance to win some blog candy! I’m always looking for my next good read! I will pick a random winner to receive a gift in the mail from me.
Have a great day!
