Criss-Cross (using 1 card base)

One thing that always seems to come up is, "those criss-cross cards are so cute but use a ton of paper." I found a way on the CTMH® boards how to make one using less paper. I love this technique and use it all the time. I have the directions and pictures below but let me know if you have any questions. I have also attached the video from you tube where I got the idea.

First, take a regular card base and cut the front at a diagonal.
Flip the cut off piece over and glue to the other flap. I usually paste mine to the inside so that the bottom of the card is sealed by the fold. (Does that make sense)

Here is another view. Don't forget to use those pattened papers.

Then, just seal on the sides only. This will form a pocket and allow for the card part to be inserted.
Like I said this is a great PAPER SAVER. Cheap way to make an expenseive looking card.
