Muffin Display Card How-To

This is pretty basic, but I thought I'd show you guys how I made these cards.

You'll need:
  • Paper Cutter or Scissors
  • 2 different types of card stock
  • One of these Templates (It's available in several colors)
  • Adhesive
  1.  Open up the pdf file of the template. You can either print from here and hand write in the types of muffins (or whatever else you may be using the cards for) Or you can be a little more complex and do what I did. Right click on one of the templates and save the image. Then open in Word, and insert a text box and type the information.
  2. Now, cut out each box as well as the card stock. Since you can really make these print any size that you'd like I don't have exact dimensions for the size the card stock will need to be. Just make sure that your textured or patterned card stock is 1/4 inch larger on each side, and the other piece of card stock is 1/4 inch larger on each side plus twice as long on one side since we will be folding it in half to form a card. EXAMPLE: If the printed box is 2X3, the patterned card stock should be 2.5X3.5, and the other card stock should be 6X4 (I hope that makes sense!)  
  3. Mount the printed box on the patterned card stock with your chosen adhesive. Fold the larger piece of card stock in half and mount the printed card stock on that and voile!
