Step 1Score the 4 1/4" x 11" piece of cardstock at at 1", 2-3/4", 3-3/4", 5-1/2", 7-1/4", 8-1/4", and 10".
Step 2Stamp as desired. If using a background stamp, fold in half on the 5-1/2" line to achieve full-coverage without having to line up the image.
Step 3Turn cardstock base over to the non-stamped side. On the middle 5-1/2" score line, make a mark 5/8" in from both sides.
Step 4Cut between marked lines to make a slit for your tag.
Step 5You can make this slit larger if your tag has dimension and bulky accessories. Use a hobby blade, ruler, and setting mat to create your desired opening.
Step 6Apply Sticky Strip™ to the stamped side on the end 1" scored sections. You will want to place one strip next to the score line on one, and one strip at the edge on the other side (this becomes important when closing the piece together and for holding the tag in place).
Step 7Create your tag with the 2-1/2" x 5" piece of cardstock and adhere to the mat measuring 2-3/4" x 5-1/4". Adhere punched circles to the top. Attach a Jumbo Eyelet. Add ribbon so tag can be pulled up.
Step 8Slide tag into cut slit.
Attach tag to one of your Sticky Strips™. Make sure it is centered in the slit and lines up with the bottom.
Step 9Fold up the other side with the Sticky Strip™ and attach to the tag.
Step 10Embellish the 1" cardstock base section to finish of your card.
Your card will fold flat.
