20200729_135523

This is an EASY fun fold TAB CARD: make a standard card. Cut off 1" of the right front and use it as a TAB. Score the 1" strip at 1", fold and attach to the back of the card so the strip folds over the front of the card when it's closed!

I mounted three stamps on one block for fast stamping on the coordinating die cut label. The label is attached to the 1" TAB strip.

Desiccant Reuse Tip for Paper Crafters

Desicant

Do these look familiar? These are desiccants used to keep pharmaceuticals and other products from getting damp. They contain a naturally occurring mineral, gypsum, to absorb moisture. Instead of throwing the packets in the trash, I toss the desiccant packets into the bottom of my Card Stock File! WHY? Because paper fibers absorb moisture and odors.  Helps keep my paper supplies fresh!!

Try it!


My Art Philosophy

White with  floral  Art is AnythingRemember,
