and got going.
Then we folded the outside sections over towards the open side and marked and cut the outside sections again, making these cuts approx. half the length of the others.
We folded again the most outside parts towards the opening of the card,
Now, when you combine solid colored cardstock and the cut piece you already have your card, tadah!:
You add stems and colorful flowers/hearts and get an adorable Valentine's card that will knock everyone out of his/her pants!
Note that the smaller your cuts/garden stairs are, the longer your flowerstems can be. With larger stairs you have to shorten the flowers, so they won't peek out over the top of the card when folded.
Now you probably still wonder why I'm publishing this under 'a noble quest'.. well, that's what this is since she/we will have to make at least 12 of these for my daughter's whole class...! Two done, ten to go....
So what are you doing right now? Come on, get going, gather your supplies and make someone happy on Valentine's day!
