So I've made a few stair step cards and people have asked for a tutorial.

I dont know what to say, they are just SUPER easy.

Cut your paper to 5x10.5
Score it at 1.25 2.5 4.25 6 and 8.25 and accordian fold it up. That makes the stairs. (measurements in inches, sorry metric girls)
cut papers to decorate the stairs.
Add stamped images, either to the paper on the stairs directly or cut them out or whatever.

oh the back stair piece you can put a paper up to 4.25 inches tall.

The 5 inch width will accomidate the extra bulk of the card when you put it in an envelope as well as let you have things that sort of extend over the edge which I think is fun.

Also I want to add that it was not my idea. I have seen them on a few blogs and also on Splitcoast. :)
