Print Template and Photos
Download and print card template onto white card stock. Size and print 3" x 3" photos or order photos in this size from a photo lab. If possible, create a 1/8" white border around image. Cut out card design using scissors or paper cutter.
Use a ruler and bone folder to create a folding crease at 5" (middle of card). This creates a clean crease and makes it easier to fold correctly.
Glitter Edges of Photo
Use a small paintbrush to apply glitter glue to one edge of photo. Generously sprinkle glitter onto the glue, then tap off excess. Continue glittering each edge, one by one, until all edges are complete. Set photo aside and allow glue to dry.
