Double Zig Zag Card

Just sharing a unique card with you.  This double zig zag card is easier to make than it looks.

I started with 2 pieces of card stock cut at 6 inches by 10 inches.  I scored each one at 2, 4 and 6 inches.  (be sure to score from the left on one and from the right on the other)  I then cut the diagnonal starting at 2 1/4 inches from the bottom and going to 1/4 inch from the last score mark. 

At this point you can use an edge punch along the diagonal cut.  Now cut the flap from the right side. I cut leaving 3/4 inches around the perimeter. Ink all edges and folds.

Adhere the right side onto the left side. Be sure you don't adhere down the center flap.
For the band I cut a piece of cardstock 2 inches by 12 inches.  I punched along both long sides and inked the edges.  Score at 1 7/8 inches, 2 inches, 4 inches and 4 1/8 inches.  Fold and adhere together to make band.
Now your card is ready to decorate.
Attach patterned paper as desired.  You could stamp your sentiment or place a photograph on the top of the flap.  I added a thin strip of patterned paper and a flower to the band.
Stamp your sentiment under the flap.  Or you could tuck in a gift card here.
And this is my finished project.
Thank you for stopping by. 
Happy Scrapping
