Weathergrams -- Fun and Cool and Easy! Tutorial.
My scans came out really strange (any help on this for future tutes = appreciated!). I dont' remember where I first found the instructions for these but it was a while ago. To explain WHAT it is--this is the copy that you put on the inside (in your own words or not):
"Hang this Weathergram outdoors to be completed by nature's elements. Weathergrams are generally replaced at the EQUINOX and SOLSTICE as a way of celebrating the seasons. I recommend you visit your Weathergram from time to time and bring it in when you think it's just right."
Size of good quality, sturdy paper (I like a rough finish; I used red paper here): 12" X 3". 3" at the top gets folded down.
In the fold down position, decorate however you like--paint, stamp, colored pencils--I did them all here. Punch a hole at the top (the hole is going through the "flap" and the back of the paper now). Print out the saying so it fits within the 3" width. Open the flap and glue the saying on the backside of the flap. Then I used cheap but natural looking twine to put through the top hole plus, you'll see, that I also punched the flap part, too, and strung twine with a cute button at the end. So fun!!! A card that becomes MORE artful in nature!!!
I hope this works as far as getting the pictures on here...it's my first offering to craftster.http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/20536weathergramclosed001.jpg http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/20536greatweathertagopen002.jpg
