Window box card



Today I have another little idea for the Tonic Studios Geared punch..Dotty Border and the Petal Pairs punches. It's very simple but effective. 





I'll not bore you with the step by step details save to say that I used the Tonic Studios Super Trimmer to make the window frame, and hand cut the little window box. I've also used lots of Scrapbook Adhesives Foam Squares to add dimension.


Here's how to make the "Roman Blind"


1. Cut a piece of patterned paper 9cm x 11cm
and score at 4cm, 5cm,8cm and 9cm .




2. Punch the border and fold in "hill and valley" style as shown in the photo.
Stick to the inside of the window frame.

If anyone needs any further tips on this card  -  just leave me a comment.


Don't forget that there is a giveaway on Blog Tonic at the moment for a set of Petal Pairs Petites. These are amazing punches and if you nip over to the blog you'll see lots of examples of how they can be used.
