You’ll need a scoring board.

Adhere one piece to the front of the cardboard and dab the edges with chalk paint.  Next shade the edges with a ColorBox Chalk Queue Ink Pad.

Glue a magnet to the inside of the top flap.

Match up the other half of the magnet, put glue on the bottom side, fold the left flap in and fold the top flap down so the magnet will be glued to the side.  Let sit to dry.

I used the same paper for all the inside pieces and the same for the outside pieces.

To make the waterfall cut 8 pieces of cardstock 5″ x 4-1/2″ and score at 1/2″ so the pieces measure 5″ x 4″ when folded.
Glue the tab of the first piece centered at the top of the back piece.

Glue the next tab butted up against the edge of the first.

Glue the rest of the pieces the same way to form your waterfall.

It’s time to decorate!!
I used Tim Holtz new Halloween stamp set to decorate.
I stamped each piece on a light purple cardstock and fussy cut around them.
I cut a piece of black cardstock for a backgrond on each piece.



I used a frame die and cut out half pieces, then fussy cut them to fit the top and bottom of the front page.
