(This is a template...obviously you won't have dashed lines all over your good stuff.)
It is always a good idea to have a few practise runs before you start, and then keep the template safe for the next time.
Take an A4 card and lay it flat with the long ends at the top and bottom.
Crease and fold the card in half along the length.
(The black dashed line)
Then divide one half into equal panels.
(The pink dashed lines)
Cut along the pink lines to the centre of the card and this will give you three seperate panels.
Crease and fold each of these panels in half again.
This is the part that will form the support for the easel.
Each of these panels should be about 10cms (3 3/4")
Mat and layer
pretty papers onto these panels decreasing the size a little each time
Line the base of the Easel with more paper.
You will need to make "Stops" and add them to the base to hold the Easel open.
Take a look at the Video Tutorial for the
if you prefer to learn by watching.
Then apply those steps to this, or any of the other easel cards, for a really lovely effect.
As the card is longer than standard you will probably need to buy or make your own envelope.
This page will show you how to
make an envelope.
This Triple Easel Card is so spectacular it would serve as a wedding card or any other special occasion.
