Window Lever Cards Tutorial:
1.  Cut out all your card pieces.  There will be two centers from the frame cuts.  You will not need the "frame" inside (red polka dots in photo above)...however, you need to keep the inside of the card base piece (the kraft color square shown above).

2.  Adhere mats in place.  The frame mat goes on the main card base then adhere the three panels on the inside card piece.  Fold the card base in half (as a normal card would) then accordion fold the inside card piece as shown in image.
3. Flip the inside card piece over and place adhesive only on the panel as shown.
4. Open the main card base then adhere the inside card piece to the inside of the card, centering well with a small frame around it as shown.
5. Fold the accordion pieces and press them down. Place adhesive on the two tabs as shown.
6.  Adhere the tabs to the back of the front of the card (back of the window).  They will adhere close to the center of the card where it folds and behind each frame piece.
7.  Now when you open the card, you should see something like this.
8.  Fold the accordion pieces and press them down again. Then close the card front.  Now place adhesive on the piece that shows through the window.
9.  Adhere the mat to the inside square piece that we kept from the main card cut.  Adhere this inside the window.  Make certain you have the card closed when adhering so it centers perfectly in the card window.
10. Now your card looks like this.
11. This image shows the card more open.
12. Next you will build the snowman.  Cut out all the pieces.
13. Layer the scarf, hat, and adhere the black behind the face piece. Then adhere the nose in place.  Place foam adhesive on the head and middle belly area as show.
14. Adhere the pieces in place, (I put the arms in between the two layers of the middle belly) your snowman should look similar to this now.
15. Place foam adhesive on the back of your snowman.
16. Adhere your snowman to the front of your card.
17-18. Images of what the card looks like now!

Holiday Candy Gift Card Holders

These Holiday Candy Gift Card Holders are perfect for gift giving or even marking a place at your Holiday dinner table!  The assembled project is approximately 3-1/2" X 4-3/4" X 1" and it holds a standard sized gift card (also cash or a note) in the top pocket and five Hershey Kiss candies. 

1.  Cut out all your pieces and fold on the score lines.
2.  Just realized my photos are out of order, sorry!  this is actually for the gift card holder (3rd image).  Place adhesive along the two edges as shown.  Fold down and adhere.  This will form the gift card pocket.  Adhere mat in place.
3.  (Middle photo, 3rd step) Place adhesive on the large tab as shown.  Fold the box up to form the "kiss" holder.  Hold adhesive to adhere in place.  Adhere the tabs closed on one side, fill the box then adhere the remain tabs in place.  The kisses will fit in and out of the window opening as well with manual manipulation, just be gentle so not to tear the score lines!  I closed a couple without filling them myself and that's how I know!  :)
