Step 3: Folding (Main Card)

The card should print out the be 9.5 inches wide. We're going to make a score along the middle of the card so it will fold more easily and cleanly. If we didn't do this, and tried to fold it, the ink would most likely crack and different stress marks would appear on the paper.

Measure out to the center of the card on the top and bottom, and make a few marks to line the ruler up with. Go ahead and make the score with your X-Acto knife.

If you're not comfortable with how much pressure to exert (as to not cut the paper), you can use the backside of the knife, rather than the blade.

Oooo genius! :D <br> <br>Next time make a Bender. <br>Maybe some money coming out of his @ss. ;D LOL
Bender would never give anyone his money!
(unless he was getting booze in exchange, and there was no obvious way to steal it)
very nice, :)
Woaw, nothing can show my amazement right now o.o
thats the best! got a good laugh out of it.
This is great, but what does the <em>front</em> of the card look like?
Thanks for the oversight.<br> <br> It's actually in a few of the other steps pictures, but it was a good idea to add that to the introduction.<br> <br> Hopefully that clears things up.
whatever you want i would be guessing. but i agree with kiteman. hopefully i can make this in time for a mates party which is soon
I thought, &quot;This would be perfect for our mutual friend who's graduating&quot; then I read the description. Not sure what I'm getting him yet.
