Step 2- With the 12" X 12" solid color Cardstock, cut off a strip that is 1 5/8"(this is crap), On the 12" side make a notch with a pencil at the 6". Now place pc in trimmer and line up the notch and the corner of paper on the cutting blade and cut. Then place the same notch and the other corner on cutting blade then cut. This will make a large triangle.

Step 3- With the 7 white pcs, on the 5 1/2" side make a pencil notch at 2 3/4". Now place notch and corner on cut line of trimmer and as before cut, then the same on the other side- cut from notch to corner. This will make a med size triangle. Do this to all 7 pcs.

Step 4- With the 7 white pcs, put one of these aside (this will be for the center of the card). Now with the remaining 6 pcs, cut 1 1/2" off of one side, then cut an additional 1/4" off the same side. There will be 3 pcs that you cut the 1/4" sliver is scrap(or trash). Repeat this process for all 6 pcs. 

Step 5- With the 6 DSP pcs, cut 1 1/4" off of one side, then cut an additional 1/2" off the same side. The 1/2" pc is scrap. Repeat this process for all 6 pcs.

Step 6- With the Large solid color Triangle, Place any long edge on the left side of score board. At the 5 1/4" core line follow it down and score the paper straight down. Next score at the 7" score line in the same way. Turn the triangle one turn the repeat the 2 score measurements. Then turn a 3rd time and repeat the score measurements. 

Step 7- With one of the points of the large triangle pointing toward you, fold up on the highest score line then crease. Then fold the point back (or towards you) on the lowest score line, crease. Repeat for all 3 sides. 

Step 8- Glue down all the white panels in each section on both sides of the large triangle. Then Glue the DSP panels on top of each white panel - leaving a border arround all the sides.
