October 5th is World Teacher’s Day. Celebrate your favorite teacher or teachers with this fun diorama card. They’re easy to make so if you need more than one it won’t be a problem. It will actually be a lot of fun!
Begin by cutting 2 pieces of cardstock that measure 5 ½” x 8 ½”. Cut a second piece that measures 5 ½” x 6 ½”.
Score the first two pieces at 2” and 6 ½” using a scoring board. Fold the flaps towards the front on these pieces.
Score the third piece of cardstock that you cut at 1” and 5 ½”. Fold the flaps towards the back on this piece.
Now, using one of your favorite dies (Labels Four by Spellbinders used here) and your die cut machine cut a window through one of the larger pieces and the one center piece. Lay all of the parts aside for the time being.
Fussy cut around the embellishment with a pair of scissors.
Attach it on the inside of the window using a tape runner. This will be the center piece you use for this.
Add strips of double sided taped down each flap.
Add a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” sheet of patterned paper (this sheet is from Teacher’s Pet) to the inside of the back. Line up the flaps of the center piece with the score line on each side of the back piece and attach it.
Decorate (stickers are from the Teacher’s Pet line by Echo Park) the front piece and then line up the flap on the front and back and attach them together using the double sided tape.
This is what the card will look like when it is folded to be placed inside the envelope.
Get creative this October and celebrate this day or any of your favorite days with this easy and fun card! Don’t stop with just one day use if for any time of year and holiday by changing the theme with matching paper and embellishments. There’s always a time to create an awesome card like this one!
