Cut the 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock to 5 1/2 x 11.
On the 11" side score at the 2 3/4 and 8 1/2 inch lines.
Fold the creases made on the score lines facing up.
Cut 4 pieces of 2 5/8 x 5 1/4 pieces of cardstock for the inner & outer flaps. I used Graphic 45's Home Sweet Home "Garden Fresh" cardstock. Ink the edges and adhere to the flaps.
Cut a piece of 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inch of cardstock for the inside/middle of the card. I used Graphic 45's Home Sweet Home "Garden Fresh". Leave a slight edge of card showing when you adhere the cardstock.
Cut a piece of 1 3/4 x 5 1/4 piece of cardstock. I added a decorative border. Apply glue to the edges only and adhere to 5 1/4x 5 1/4 inch. This will create a pocket for tags.
Cut a piece of approximately 2 x 12" piece of cardstock to create the belly band. I used Graphic 45's Home Sweet Home "Country Life" cardstock.
Close the flaps of the card & wrap the paper around the card and adhere the edges of the 12" strip of paper. DO not adhere too tightly or you will not have room for bulk created by embellishments.
Here's what the belly band looks like. You should be able to slide it over the card.
Now comes the fun. I used Graphic 45's Home Sweet Home Chipboard 2, twine & flower then attached them to the belly band on the front cover.
Graphic 45's Home Sweet Home Sticker "I Love The Country Life" and flowers.
More fun with stickers, flowers, burlap & cheesecloth!
I cut two tags for the pocket from Graphic 45's Home Sweet Home "My Sunshine" cardstock, and added tabs by using a paper punch.
I fussy cut veggies and other items from Graphic 45's Home Sweet Home "Farmers' Market" cardstock and added to the inside flaps of the card.
