Instructions for Easel card

I can't remember where I found it but it is by Beate Johns.
one 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" piece of cardstock
one 4 1/2" square piece of cardstock
scoring tool
strong adhesive
Additional cardstock for inside and card front

Step 1. Score the 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" piece of cardstock at 4 1/4" and 6 3/8"
Step 2. prefold all score lines. first fold the card in half, then fold the second score line (6 3/8")opposite from the 4 1/4" score line.
Step 3. Place cardstock on table with the 4 1/4" side down.
Add adhesive to the 2 1/8" x 4 1/4" section cardstock that is facing up.
Step 4. Adhere the 4 1/4"cardstock square to the card base.
Line up the top of the square with the top of the 2 1/8" x 4 1/4" section.
This creates the easel card base.
Step 5. Decorate the card front and the inside.
Step 6. To make the easel card stand up by itself, add an embellishment or an extra layer to the inside of your card. This will keep the card from closing.
Happy crafting!
