This year's group birthday cards!!

Every year I am in charge of making birthday cards for my group.  Each year I try to make the a little different, but the goal is to make it so all 24 people in my department can sign it.  Usually when someone gets a birthday card from the store, you get about an square inch to sign.  I make sure people have plenty of room to sign.  Here are some older posts that I shared some other group cards.

I've made these before, but this time I made them with 12X12 paper. Here's my post when I made them before.

I cut the 12X12 in half and scored it at 4-1/2" and at 5", then at 10-1/2"
Then you fold up at the 10-1/2" line and staple it down.
For the inside, I took an 8-1/2" X 11" scored it at 4-1/4" and at 8-1/2", then cut it in half lengthwise.

You will get 2 sheets, but you need 3 sheets, so repeat with another sheet of cardstock.

Fold them in a zig zag fashion.
Adhere 2 of them together using the shortest flap together.
For the third sheet you want to cut off 1-1/2" off and score the strip at 3/4" in the middle.
You use this to attach the third sheet to the other two.
Fold up the inside sheets and use the third sheet with the inch flap leftover and adhere it to the inside of the card.

Then fold over the cover at the 4-1/2" and 5" marks.  You can tuck in the inside and then tuck in the cover so that it starts to look like a matchbook
Here it is all done and labelled for the birthday recipient.
Here is the stack of all 24 of the cards, ready to deliver and ready for the whole year!
Thank you for checking in!
