My tutorial:


I’ve prepared a tutorial on
How to Make a Centre Step Card.

You’ll need:
Piece of card measuring 6x9.5inch.
Scoring tool and scoring board – I’ve used a box maker by Crafter’s Companion
Craft Knife and a steel edge ruler

This is the box maker. The score lines are approx. 1inch apart.





 I’ve used a ‘Box Lid’ side of the box maker. Put your piece of card on the scoring board ‘right side’ down.





Score the second and the eight line from the left.








4th, 8th and 10th line from the left but make sure you DO NOT go from one edge to the other.








Using your craft knife and a steel edge ruler cut where it’s marked in RED.








That’s what you should end up with after cutting. 








Turn the piece of card upside down. (The right side up!)








And fold where you can see score lines. The first set of score lines should be a mountain fold. 








The second a valley fold.








The remaining two mountain folds.








This is it! 



















 My take on Thank You challenge:
