Open Book Easel Card With Or Without Dies!

positivelypapercraft open book easel card

Hi everyone,
Thank you for visiting my Blog today! I hope you are all having a great Weekend.
I have been wanting to make an open book card for sometime now. In my craft forum group, a few Ladies have been making them & then that reminded me that i never got round to making one. They are very simple to make & you can do it with or without dies. I hope you like the ones i have made.

No die open book easel card





The first picture above is made with the open book die set that i have. I have put the link in my Youtube video description. The paper pad is Mintay and i think i got it from https://thompsonscraftsupplies.com/. The unicorn type card is make with an edge die and the paper pad is from Hobbycraft. I have no idea if you can still get it as i bought it last year.

If you don't have an edge or border die you can still make this type of card without dies. Just follow the same sizes that i used and then you could just round the corners making it look like a Book. Easy!!!

Please find the measurements i used below in Metric & Imperial .

DIMENSIONS

CARD BASE IS 6 X 8" SCORE IN THE MIDDLE @ 4"

THEN 6 X 4"
THEN MAKE THE NEXT LAYER 5 1/2" X 3 1/2"
THEN 5 1/4" X 3 1/4"
THEN 5 X 3"
THEN 4 3/4" X 2 3/4" 
FOLD THEM ALL IN THE MIDDLE CREATING YOUR 'BOOK'

  3. This is so stunning and so versatile it could be a card of any occasion but also a paper ornament in a kid's room so many options.
    You even explain how to use other dies to create pages.
    There is not many YouTube crafter's that give and show this option, this makes you Ann as a crafter unique you show and guide throughout thank you for being you it makes such a difference for me as a starter. XxπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸŒΊπŸŒΊ
