Triangle Star card with 12 X 12 measurements

Remember when I made a Triangle Star card  with a 6 X 6 paper? Here is the tutorial for a 12 X 12 cardstock.  
First cut of the top at 1-5/8"

Then, mark the center of the top of the paper at 6" with a pencil.
Cut from the mark you made to the bottom corners to make a triangle.
Fold one side in half to find the middle
 Bring the opposite corner to the middle you just found
 Fold and repeat on remaining 2 sides
 This is what you get
 Mark 2" from the center on all 3 sides
 Score at your mark, NOT at 2", repeat on remaining 2 sides
 Then, fold IN on the first (outside) score line, and then fold OUT on the second (inside) score line.
 Repeat on remaining 2 sides
 Then, once they are all folded, tuck in the last flap under the first flap to close your card.
Finished card closed:
 Finished card opened:
 To simulate the flowers on the paper, I decided to duplicate it, so first I punched it out with the 1-3/4" scallop circle punch.
 Then, I used a post-it to secure the punched out circle, so I can punch it again.
 You lined up the punched circle so the punch cuts into the paper like this:
 Wellah!  The punch now looks like the flower on the designer paper.

Thank you for checking in!
