Twisted Easel Card Tutorial

Hi there and welcome to my first Teddy Bo tutorial.  I hope you find it easy to use.  If you follow my tutorial and make a card using our wonderful Teddy Bo images, my wonderful boss will very kindly give you a free image.  How good is that??

For this tutorial I have concentrated on how to make the twisted easel card blank and how to make the stopper so your card stay's upright.

  • In advance make and decorate two 14cm square panels.  One with your Teddy Bo image on and with just the same backing paper on. 

  • Cut a4 card to 29cm by 14.5cm and fold in half.  With the card blank in front of you in pencil mark the fold you need to make and then score.  See photo below.

  • Your card blank should now look like this.

  • You now need to attach your two square panels that you made at the start to your card blank.  Begin by glueing you plain panel onto the base of your card(the side that has no score line running diagonally across it .
  • Now come's the only tricky bit.  Turn your card over so that the base panel is on the left underside and you can see the fold line as in the photo.

  • Use glue or tape to attach your prepared card front to only the section shown in red (see photo above)

  • You now need to decide which type of stopper you want on your card.  Either a strip of card that matches your card or some sort or round stopper, like a large button or a die cut shape like I have used below.

  • Here are photo's to show you the placement of both stoppers so you decide how you would like your card to look.Your stoppers need to be on foam pads as you need it raised up so that it will stop your card falling flat.  I usually use a depth of 2 foam pads.  First the strip stopper.

  • And here is the other version of a stopper.

I would like to enter my finished card into the following challenges :
