Watch Us Wednesday with Jennifer Cuthbertson: Hinged Card Tutorial

In keeping with this week's challenge to link up your favorite past project from 2011, today we're sharing a great tutorial that  Jennifer created for you back in October, that shows you how to create a hinged card using decorative brads and paper tape!

Jennifer started with a piece of buff ivory cardstock trimmed to 4.25 x 5.5 and covered it with strips of paper tape. Trim the excess tape with scissors.

Cut a circle from the buff ivory cardstock and a coordinating scalloped circle from some patterned paper. Then, stamp some foliage images; one in green that will be the background image, and others in dark brown which Jennifer cut out and popped up using foam squares.

Jen then attached the two circles together and attached them to the taped base using a Christmas decorative brad.

Cut a smaller circle from the buff ivory and stamp it with the Christmas greeting which is revealed when the larger circle is rotated.

This is a fun and easy way to change up your "normal" folded cards that could even be sent as postcards simply by addressing the back!

Don't forget that you still have plenty of time to join this week's challenge.  To learn more and to link up your favorite past project of 2011, follow the Current Challenge link located in the upper righthand of our sidebar!
