Welcome to the Hop Today

If you arrived here from our talented host, 
 then you are headed in the right direction. 

If you just happened here, please begin with Ellen above!

"I Love You"  Waterfall Card

 When you pull the tab the message rotates!

 Inside area for sentiment
Card Size:  4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Here's How to Make It:  

Scalloped ovals 2 1/4", Storybook
Card stock strip 2 1/4" x 8 3/4"
Score at 1 3/4", 2 1/2", 3 1/4" and 4"
from one end and crease well

     Place adhesive on small area of scallops...not too far.

Begin placing scallops from a score line down.  Each section will get a scallop.

After all glued down.  Cut ovals 1 3/4" add to scallops, punch hole for ribbon
and decorate!

Cut 3/4" x 4 1/4" band. Place adhesive on each end only.  Place on card
1" up from bottom.  Slide strip with ovals under band. Flip over and lay down last 
scallop even with band and adhere to band to make it stationery. 
This is a simple card technique that's loads of fun!

Square Waterfall Card

Same technique as above, but this time I 
wanted to make a larger card.  
I will use this to teach children with the colors of the salvation story 
as the colors fall back in the card.

Card Size:  5" x 7"
Card stock strip:  2" x 12 1/2"
(I pieced the strip)
Score at 2", 2 3/4", 3 1/2", 4 1/4", 5" and 6"
Colored squares:  2"
