How To Cut A Rectangular Card With A Square Die.(Tutorial)

For my Scrapbook Sisters DT card last Wednesday,I made this tiny rectangular tag type card which I cut using my square Nestabilities. I have been asked a few times since how to do this and I promised that I'd do a little tutorial for it. Please ignore the terrible state of my hands,I think a manicure is definitely due,think I'll ask for one for my birthday lol!

1,Score A5 down centre


3,Place Nestability  with 1/2 of the scallop over the edge of the fold

4,Run through Cuttlebug

5,Remove from die,if the cut isn't clean,you can place 1 extra piece of cardstock under the cutting pad before running back through cuttlebug.

6,Move the folded card along one scallop before running back through the machine,C pad on bottom,B pad on top.

7,Remove edge to leave a rectangular card.

8,Cut another square of card.

9,Move the die cut along one scallop as before and run through the machine.

10,Remove the edge to leave a rectangle.

11,run glue around the face of the first,folded card.(I do this on the the side that looks less neat.) 

12,Match up the scallops and firm down.

13,The finished card blank.

I hope that this has been of help,let me know what you think!
