Tips & Tricks - File Folder Card

This card could be landscape or portrait, it could have one side shorter than the other, it could be a journalling pocket or a gift card pocket.  Once you've got the basics below sorted I'm sure you'll find all sorts of ways to use this technique.

Start with a standard folded A5 card base.

Insert the corner of your card base into the punch board as shown & punch.  The edge should be up against the inside edge of the score guide.

Move the punched edge along to the 3" mark and punch again.

Align the punched edge in the paper trimmer as shown with the groove along the bottom of the punched shape.  Trim to remove the card to the top of the punched shape.

Flip your card and repeat on the opposite side.

Finish your card as you choose.

Thanks for the tutorial. I don't have a envelope punch board, so i figured out how to use the word window punch to make my tabs. It's on my blog if you would like to check it out.
