Let your card stock dictate the size of your card. We made the height one inch less than the width. You can also use paper stock -just mount it to a piece of card stock to give it stability. We like the look of a border around paper stock.
For inside mechanism, cut the width of letter sized card stock (8-1/2″) by a least 1/4″ less than the height of the card. Score in half and then in half again – at 2-1/2″ and 4-1/4″. If your front is smaller, adjust size accordingly. We used some stock that was only 7-1/2″ long, scored at 1-7/8″ and 3-3/4″, and it worked out fine.
A word about theses product recommendations- Tombow Glue is the adhesive of choice for this project. We love ceramic rotary cutter blades for durability, safety and the ability to swap between paper and fabrics projects without changing blades. We like the ergonomics of the Fiskars cutting tool. Add an eighth and quarter rules are great for simple yet accurate borders. We like Creative Grid rulers for the stability provide – less slippage. There are lots of fine scoring board and cutting mat options. Choose what suits your size needs.out
