It's time once again for Tutorial Tuesday
here at Shelly's Images!
And, I (Darlene) am thrilled to be your hostess!
Here's an EASY creation that can be made to fit ANY occasion and is not only a wonderful gift giving idea, but a GREAT selling craft show item! Let's get started . . .
Here's the finished product ... Closed.
(Open view is at the bottom on the tutorial)
Here are the basic products you will need ...
- 1 - 80# or more 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock
- 1 - 12x12 designer paper of your theme choice
- 1 - 5 x 8 lined tablet (I bought mine at a wholesale club similar to Sam's Club - 24 tables for $6.00)
- Adhesive of your choice ... I used 1/4" and 1/8" ScoreTape
- Embellishments of your choice (my image is Shelly's 'PINE' digi)
Cut your BASE CARDSTOCK to 8 1/8" x 10 1/2" ... SCORE at 5 1/8" and again at 5 3/8" ... this will make your cover. Then put your adhesive onto the back of you tablet and carefully line it up and attach it the 'back side' of your cover.
From your designer paper, you will need a panel for the FRONT, a 5" piece for the inside pocket, a 1" x 5" piece for the top of the tablet and in my case ... a narrow strip 8" x 1/2" to FIX A BOO BOO ...
I didn't get my tablet on exactly right and could see it when I closed the front lid ... so I cut a piece of the dp and attached it to the INSIDE of the cover before to remedy the problem (doesn't it figure I'd do this when I was taking photos for a tutorial! Uuugh!)
Here is the finished OPEN view of the Altered Tablet.
You can certainly ALTER this tutorial to fit your needs and the possibilities are ENDLESS!
