How to make a Waterfall card.

we are counting down!

We are counting down to our Girlfriends Open House
Friday November 18th
We are both so excited to have our Girlfriends here to share some treats and look around at the many projects, and new products we have brought in for the Christmas season.
We will have more sneak peeks up throughout the week!
I did promise I would put up instructions for making an easy waterfall card. There is a waterfall card in our newest Christmas Card kit and I wanted to make sure anyone could create it easily

The little Christmas Tree card in the front is the waterfall card. Let's get started
Christmas at girlfriends 558 - Copy
In your kit you will find 2-1" strips(or if you are doing this on your own you will cut two 1" strips). The base strip should be the width of your card. The second strip is your movement strip and should be twice the length of your waterfall. Glue the movement strip to the center of the base strip as shown.

Fold the movement strip so you have 1 inch of the strip showing below the base.

Glue the two tree sections together as shown. If you are working on your own please prepare your three sections for the waterfall.

Cut the sections apart and chalk the edges. This is a three section waterfall but you could add as many sections as space allows.

Fold the front section in three equal sections. I have chalked mine so you can see it but it is not necessary.

Glue the base to the card at the ends only. You want the slide to move easily. The tab will hang over 1/2 inch. In this card the base is attached 1/2 inch from the bottom of the card front.

Glue section 1 of the tree to the 1st section of the waterfall. Let it hang over 1/2". Make sure it is not glued to the 2nd section.

Glue the next two sections in place. The last section will attach to the base strip as well as the last section.

As you pull down on the tab each section shall reveal itself. You will write your message here.

Trim off any tab hanging over the edge and glue a little 1/2 circle to the tab.

Optional: you can decorate your little tree with rhinestones or sequins. Tip: clear rhinestones can be colored any color with sharpies!
