4-3/8″ x 4.25″ (large inside pocket)
To make the front flap, score the 5″ x 7″ piece of card at 1″ on the short side

On the larger side, make a notch at 3.5″ along the 7″ side

Turn and make a notch at 1″ on the short side – top and bottom

Cut from the 3.5″ notch to the 1″ notch on the outer edges. Fold in the 1″ score line and burnish well.

Fold the 10″ x 7″ piece in half on the long side to create a 5″ x 7″ card base.

Slide the card base into the flap and adhere the 1″ section of the flap to the back of the card. Open up the card and adhere two of the 6.75″ x 4.75″ pieces of paper.

Take the 5.25″ x 2″ piece of card and score at 0.25″ on each of the short sides and one of the long sides.

Cut away the corners.

Fold in both side and burnish well, then apply a little dot of glue to the bottom 0.25″ section and fold up.

Apply adhesive to the sides and adhere the pocket at the bottom of the inside left page.

To make the booklet, fold the 8.5″ x 4″  & 7.75″ x 3.5″ pieces of card in half. Round the outer edges.

Apply adhesive to the back of the larger pages and adhere down on the inside left, leaving approx 0.75″ gap between it and the pocket at the bottom of the page. Adhere the paper layers to the inside and outside.

Score the smaller pages approx 0.25″ from the centre fold line.

Apply adhesive ONLY to the 0.25″ section

Adhere down on top of the other pages, lining it up to the score line.

Adhere the paper layers

Take the 5″x 5″ piece of card and score at 0.25″ on three sides.

Measure down 2″ on the left side and cut diagonally from the top right corner to the 2″ mark.

Cut away the corners as before.

Taper down the right 0.25″ section so that it is not visible when folded in.

Adhere the pocket to the inside right page.

Use the pocket to mark the angle for the paper.

Place the 6.75″ x 3,.75″ piece of paper on the inside of the front flap. Using a pencil, mark the centre top and approx 1/8″ down on each side. Cut diagonally from the centre pencil mark down to the outside pencil marks. Repeat on the outside piece.

Before adhering the paper to the inside of the front flap, adhere one side of the magnet down.

Adhere the paper down and then put the other side of the magnet on top. Apply some glue.

Fold down the flap, let it dry for a few minutes and then lift up the flap. This should leave the 2nd magnet piece stuck to the front of the card. Adhere the front paper layer over the magnet.

Cut two stitched pennants approx 6.5″ long and 2.25″ wide. Cut inside the stitches on the paper pennant, and adhere to the black card pennant.

Adhere to the front flap.

Retrieve Curvy Girl is Busy and adhere to the pennants using foam tape/dots.

Use a circle punch and some paper offcuts to add some paper elements.

Embellish the inside using stickers and die cuts. As the card needs to fold up the inside elements need to be kept flat.

Finally, add some enamel dots to finish off.
