2 sheets of A5 paper

Use the trimmed off triangle to cut 2 triangles from patterned paper

Trim off 5mm from the longest edge of both triangles.

Attach to outer panels as shown, leaving a white border all the way around. Wrap the two outside edges over each other to create a criss cross pocket.

Trim the 1/2 card into a 13cm square.

Trim the patterned paper into a 12.5 x 12.5 square, trimming along the longest edge first.

Attach the patterned paper to the cardstock square, leaving a white border all the way around.

Trim the 12" strip to 3cm wide.

Score lines across the strip at 3cm & 18cm.
