  • Score at 4¼" then fold on the score line.
  • This card will open from the bottom.
  • On the front of the card, we are going to cut a 1" line on both sides from the fold to the bottom, so open the card and place it in the paper trimmer with the fold line going horizontal.
  • At the 4¼" mark and the 1" mark, cut a line down to the fold line.
  • Close the card. You should have two 1" strips on each side.
  • Holding the center and one flap down, lift the other 1" flap, add seal to the flap, then close the flap making sure it lines up perfectly. Repeat on the other flap.
  • Open the center flap and place the cut line across the top of the paper trimmer and score at 2⅛" half the distance of the flap then fold of the score line.
