"CASS CREATING NOW TUTORIALS" - TEEPEE CARD - 9/4/2015

Click here for the CURRENT CHALLENGE.



Hi!  I'm Cass and I am a Guest Designer today for this tutorial.
Today, I am going to show you how to make a  Teepee Card.


Teepee Cards
Great for sending, but also great as decorations for special times.
Supplies Required:
A scorer (it is really helpful for these cards)
Card stock
Something to cut your card stock into the following squares
For each card you will need
3 squares at  5 and a half by 5 and a half inches
3 squares at 5 by 5 inches
3 squares at 4 and a half by 4 and half inches
Glue
Double sided tape
Coloured Images, I have  used 
Kitty Kitty Kat, Scarey Pumpkin, Willow da witch;,
Christmas Scene 1, Merry Christmas Mouse, A Bell for Christmas, Mr Claus,  Putting up the Tree, Beautiful Bow,  Beautiful Christmas Wreath, 
My Little Cook, The Chef, Grannies Cookies,  The Cook,
all from the Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More Store
All have been coloured with Copic and Touch markers
 

Supplies



Cut your card stock into squares:
3 squares at 5.5 x 5.5 inches
3 squares at 5 by 5 inches
3 squares at 4.5 x 4.5 inches
(You could do bigger or smaller squares; just remember to go down in half inch sizes)



Score all the 5.5 x 5.5 inch squares in half diagonally.
Tip:  Line up the bottom point with a scoring mark then line up the top.



Fold the 5.5 x 5.5 inch squares along the score line and put to the side



Take all the 5 x5 and 4.5 x 4.5 inch squares and cut diagonally.
 I usually will score these lines before I cut them.  It makes it easier 
if you have an indication where to cut.



Then cut one triangle from both of these into quarters (score first then cut your scored lines)




You will end up with a whole lot of triangles. 



Each card will use 4 triangles from the 5.5 x 5.5 inch square
4 large triangles from the 5 x 5 square
2 small triangles from the 5 x 5  square (optional)
4 large triangles from the 4.5 x 4.5 square
2 small triangles from the 4.5 x  4.5  square.(optional)
You will have some triangles over.

 



Take the 5.5 x 5.5 inch squares and layer them as in the diagram.  The dotted lines represent the scoring lines and you will be looking at the folds as valley folds.



This is a bit harder to see but here is the black card base I am working with at this stage



You can use either glue or double sided tape.  The glue is easier to work with as you can move the pieces around to get a good alignment.
Mark where the glue line is to be, making sure you do not put any glue on the score lines.


Then either use glue

or double sided tape.



Press the pieces together and when wrapped around they will form the teepee.
A paper clip holds the card in place.



Opened up, the card is ready for the decorating.  Mountain folds up, place your triangles in place, making sure everything fits.  If they don't just do some trimming.



Glue the triangles together, making sure the edges are even.



Then adhere to the card base



 Continue until the card base is completely covered.
On this one I reversed the tiny triangles.
YOU NEED TO PUT THE TRIANGLES ON WITH THE CARD FLAT.


Card erected.



Decorating

YOU NEED TO PUT ON THE IMAGES/DECORATIONS
WITH THE CARD ERECTED.
That way your images/decorations will be straight.  In the picture below, the images look crooked but in fact they are straight when the card is erected. (see next picture.)



Images are on



Then use whatever embellishments you have.

I have used words on the Halloween Card



 This one has just the images



 This one has been turned into a Christmas Tree, with lots of images, glitter and little branches



Where I live we don't do very much for Halloween, although it is growing more popular, and we don't have Thanksgiving.  For those of you who do celebrate these days, I am sure you to have lots of embellishments that would work with these cards or maybe use them as table decorations.

I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial and will give them a try.

Thanks for joining me today.

Happy Crafting!
Cass
