Easel Topper Instructions

I've had a few requests for the dimensions of the easel topper for the Matchbook die-cut box. I'm happy to share, but I want you to know I did not create this idea. I've seen it many, many times in blogland. These are the dimensions I've found work best for what I wanted it to do.

Cut cardstock to 2" x 7-7/8". Score at 2-5/8", 3-5/8", 5-1/4. Fold on score lines as shown above.
Add Sticky Strip to the part that folds back so it stays folded closed. Then add Sticky Strip to the part that attaches to the the top of the box itself. You need to add some kind of embellishment, either a stamped image on a Stampin' Dimensional or a brad or something similar that the easel part can brace up against in order to stand up.
It will lay pretty flat if you tie a ribbon around it.
Here is a close up of the flip flop card I did for stamp club this month. I used the Lattice Embossing Folder to make the texture on the flip flops. Yes, I have the pattern and I am happy to share it if someone can send me an e-mail (yasou@cableone.net) and let me know how to upload the pattern so you click on it and can print it actual size. I've tried a couple times and it comes out huge! Maybe it's just Blogger on that particular day???

  3. Thanks for the instructions. I had not seen this before. I hope someone can help you with the pattern for the flip flops. That's a really cute idea, too. It would be perfect for some teenage girl birthday cards I need.

  4. adorable! Love your flip flops. My daughter is adicted - she has about 10 pairs in each order (Old Navy has great prices)
    I got your pattern from today's post and I was able to make it print in the corner of the paper by cutting down the excess white space in the picture tool option of word. Now I can print 9 on one piece of paper. Let me know if you want it.
