Tri Shutter Card Tutorial

I am going to explain how to make a Tri Shutter Card. For more information on making Tri Shutter Cards Go to Cardz TV and watch the video made by Mary. I have provided a link.

Start with a piece of Cardstock cut to 5 1/2 x 12
You need a paper trimmer similar to this, Xacto knife or some type of cutter.

Go in 1 1/2″ and cut from 2″ to the 10″. Then turn the paper over and repeat on the other side. I marked it in the photo for a better idea of placement
This is what you should have when your done.

Next fold down at the 2″ score , then fold in the opposite direction on the 4″ score, fold on the 8″ and again in the other direction on the 10″ score. This is an accordian type fold.
When you unfold it you will need to work with the center section and change the direction of the folds.

Now your card is ready to decorate.
