Okay, so if you've been following my blog, you'll know that I've been into unique folded card designs lately. I thought this was a really fun card design, and actually pretty simple to make! I gathered together some of my favorite Bo Bunny patterned papers (for this one I used papers from the Madeleine collection)
The card opens out and you can put your sentiment in the center. For mine I just used a rub-on for the sentiment and added a cute lil birdie design from the matching Noteworthy die-cuts from the Madeleine collection. Below I've posted a template for this unique card (instructions below the template).
Step 1: Take a solid color piece of 12"x12" cardstock. Mark the center point (6") at the top (make a pencil line, a few inches down...this is the dotted line you see on my template).
Step 2: Now put the zero mark of your ruler in the bottom left corner of your paper and pivot the ruler until the 12 " mark meets the dotted line. Mark this line. Do the same for the right bottom corner. (this is how you get 3 equal sides).
Step 3: Mark the center point of each of the 3 sides (6 inches) These will be the score lines (valley fold).
Step 4: Now put another mark 2" from the center point along the edge of the paper (both ways from each center point). This will be the other score lines....I flipped the card to make these scores as you want them to fold the opposite way of the other score lines). Done! Now decorate!
I made my decorative paper designs an 1/8" smaller around the edges so that some of the darker cardstock border showed around the edges.

A second Tag/Card I made was using the Bo Bunny 'Rose Cafe' collection. I went with the soft sage greens and pinks for this tag. I like to add neutral elements for this color grouping so I began by cutting a tag shape out of some craft paper corrugated card.
I layered on some scraps of the Rose Cafe 'Garden' paper I had left over from another project. I then cut out a frame design from the 'Frames' paper and added it with some foam dots. I fussy cut out a few of the pink rose designs from the "Espresso" paper and from a scrap I had left from the name paper from the Rose Cafe collection (swag is from this paper as well).
I added a few blooms and some burlap blooms & butterfly (by Petaloo). Put in a twine bow....easy peasy, the tag is done! I like to put a little sentiment on the back of the tag to use on a gift. (Some of you have asked what you do with tags :)
