When each section is completed, you will now begin attaching them by glueing the back of right page to the back of the left page on the second section.. If there is a sequence, line up your sections before attaching. Big NOTE here...make sure when you are gluing one backside to the next backside, the sections are right side up. As many of these as I have made, today of all things I glued the back section upside down. Fortunately I caught it quickly and was able to pull the sections apart.... And if that wasn't bad enough, I decorated the back cover upside down and had to do a second round of embellishments and titles. Here is a picture of the sections being attached.
For the front and back cover, I cut a square 6-1/4x6-1/4 from chipboard . . I cut two strips of ribbon and glue each one of the edges about 2 inches in from the edge of the cover that will open the card...and then I cover the front of each with paper. I glue the back page of the first section to the inside of the front cover, and I glue the right backside of the last section to the inside of the back cover. When you are doing this, make sure that the two edges don't "collide" with each other when the Star Card is flared open to make the Star.. Again, make sure your pages are right side up before this final step.
This is a shot of the flared card.
A picture of the "star" when the front and back cover are pulled together. If you make a card with 9 sections and 3 layers, this card will be very impressive.
TFL,...I always have fun making Star Cards.
