 You can always just use 2 different colours of paper

If you do not have a score board, you can use a ruler, a ball point pen and a magazine. (the magazine would be used as a cushion to allow a score line to be made without ruining a hard surface)


If you don't have a bone folder then just use the side of a ruler. (make sure the edges are clean before using)

If you do not have this tool, you can always use a hole puncher, a needle, the end of a pair of scissors, the point of a knife or even the end of a ball point pen. Just made sure to use something underneath while punching a hole. You can use an old book, a thick magazine, a cutting board from the kitchen and so on. Also if you end up making a bigger hole then planned, just use a brad that has a bigger surface to hide/cover the hole. 

If you use a ribbon, cut it to about 1 1/2'', fold it in half and pass the brad threw it. The part you fold is where you would insert the brad and so this would allow both cut ends of the ribbon to poke out and give a style to the card. You can always cut the ends in diagonal or keep them straight. (Have fun with it!)

Make sure you ONLY put glue onto the small strip because the tab needs to move up and down behind it.

Your 5th image you will glue down it's entire surface. 

For every image AFTER the 5th, you will ONLY add glue to the small strip shown in the picture above. This is what allows your images to make the waterfall effect.

I added Glossy Accents to the stamp to give it some dimensions.
