Secret Compatment Card

Tuihana showed us how to make this card. Very simple and fun. The above sample was made by Joeleen for fathers day. When you prise open the middle section of the card - a whole new section is revealed. 1. Measurements are: 5 1/2" x 8 1/4" for the main card and strips: 2" x 5 1/2" Stamp your desired background images on both sides of card. 2. Lay card on landscape position: score 2 1/8" from either side. 3. Make half inch slits one inch from top and bottom. 4. Weave the strips into the slits. . . .so that one sits above and the other below. 5. Close the sides inward and fold the whole thing back into itself. . . . . and score well. 6. Prise the middle open to use the hidden section. The more you open and close it the easier it is to use. Good luck. Thanx Tuihana - this is a fun and useful card. Love it!
