Wednesday Post #2: You Tube video, Flexigon

Today I have a tutorial that you can watch on You Tube. Learn how to make a dynamic card called a flexigon and use Graphic 45 to decorate it. You can use any paper designs for this project or draw your own images and text. Once you learn this fun technique the sky's the limit.

The materials and sizes you will need are listed below along with some step by step pictures, but following along with the video is the easiest way to learn how to make this flexigon.

Materials:

Paper measurements:
4 pieces of cardstock cut to 3" x 6"
4 images (ie. faces, animals, flowers, etc.) that measure 2 7/8" x 2 7/8" square. Cut each of these into
1 7/16" (just shy of 1.5 inches) square quarters.

Hardware:
Glue stick or your favorite white glue
Bone Folder
Cutting mat
Cutting knife (ex-acto blade)
Ruler
Paper trimmer (optional)
