Label Flap Gate Fold Tutorial

Hello This is Karen C!  This is my first time to post on here as a DT Member.  I decided to do a picture tutorial on how to make a Label Flap Gate Fold Card.  I used the adorable IMG00329 Our Wedding Day - Bible Journaling Bookmark Digital Stamp.  I went with a white on white paper choice.  To make this you will need some fun shaped cookie cutter dies, a die cutting machine, card stock, DP and/or cardstock, sissors, scoring tool, paper cutter.

First cut your pieces - the main part of the card is 8-1/2"x8-1/2", the piece with the sentiment is cut at 4"x4", the panels are cut at 1-7/8"x3-7/8" and 1-3/4"x3-3/4".

Print out or stamp your images:

Score the main piece:

 Remove the two upper corners:

 Using the die and die cutting machine cut the upper flap.  Place the upper cutting plate where you want the cut line to end:

Cut off the areas you need removed:

 Have your panel pieces cut and ready to put together:

 Adhere the panels and the sentiment:

 trim the side panels as need so that the top panel will lay flat:

For the top flap I made the personal choice to cut (using the cookie cutter dies) more layers, including the main image:

after gluing it all together this was my finished project:

Hope you enjoyed and understood my tutorial!
