Fun Fold Card

HI, everyone. This is a fun little card that can be made in many different sizes. I think  I’ve gone a little bit overboard because I’ve made it in quite a few sizes, some are square, some are tiny and some are rectangle but they are all made the same way. Some can be made as portrait or landscape. I hope that you try this card. I found it on Pinterest. operationwritehome.org/tutorial-fun-fold-card Here are the card size, matting size, front and middle panel sizes. Here is a list of the colour card stock that I  have used: White Daisy 1385 Slate X5930, Ruby 5927, Pear X5764, Smoothie X5763, Cotton Candy X5760 Pacifica X5759, Hollyhock 1246, Outdoor Denim 1275, Cranberry 1272 I have also used our Watercolour Pencils 3505, Score Board Z1937 ,Paper Trimmer Z1783, Adhesive Z3022, 3D Foam Z1151

Self closing box tutorial

Self Closing Box

 

Fundamental Card stock: 8 ½” x 6”

Score on long side @ 4” and 8” or score at 4” and turn and score at ½” if you have the CTMH score board.

Score on the short side @ 1” and 5”

Turn back to the long side (making sure that the ½” line is on the right hand side) and make a small score @ 2” and 6” down to the score line. This becomes the bottom of the box.

Take a ruler and a scoring tool and score from the corner to the centre mark, as shown. This forms the diagonal folds.

Cut away the small pieces on both ends then cut up all the lines, as shown.

Fold and burnish all the lines as well as the diagonal ones.

Add glue to the small side strip and close the other side over to form the box.

Round the top corners.

To form the bottom, fold in the two side flaps and adding Glue Dots to the other two close over and gently rub to secure ( You will need three Glue Dots on each flap for a secure hold).

Turn the box over and using your Bone Folder, rub the inside to help make sure that the Glue Dots stick.

The box can be opened by gently squeezing the top section in on either side.
