You'll need:

  • Colored paper (at least 3 colors)
  • Glue
  • Pencil
  • Eraser
  • Scissors
  • Craft knife

Step 1: First, cut out a 4.5"x12" piece of paper (paper A) and fold it in half making it 4.5"x6"

At the top of the fold cut a slit that runs 4 inches long (leaving a quarter of an inch on either side). This is the slit that you will slide the second paper through to reveal the design and wording.

Step 2: Using the margarita glass template, cut out the shape of the glass on the front of paper A.

Glue a different colored piece of paper (paper B) on the inside of paper A. This is where you will write your invitation wording so fold over paper A and trace the shape of the margarita glass with pencil. Write your wording inside the shape and then erase the outline.

Step 3: create the second main paper that will slide in and out (paper C). This paper is 4" wide and 6.25" inches tall with little quarter inch "feet" on either side (this is to catch the paper so that it doesn't slide completely out of the slit).

Step 4: To finish the card, slide paper C through the slit in paper A and then glue paper A closed on the bottom and edges. Trim the top of paper C if necessary.
