Just another Fancy fold!

This one I had to really figure out.  The example I have is from a card swap and I basically deconstructed it so I could remake it!  Here’s what I learned; I was wondering why not just cut on the diagonal instead of wasting all this designer paper?  Well, our DSP is really not thick enough to do this as a cut piece unless you are using one of the heavier foil-based DSP packs, this is why it is folded.  Below are three example photos.

Here’s the recipe:

12×12 Designer Series Paper (DSP) folded on the diagonal – point to point
Score lines detailed below
Coordinating card stock 2”x2” and 4” x 4 3/8”
Very Vanilla card stock 1 ¾”x1 ¾” and 3 ¾”x 4 1/8”
Multipurpose Glue/Tear Tape
Embellishments of choice

Instructions:

Now that you have your 12×12 folded point to point we are going to work with the points.
Score with the flat long edge up at 10 7/8” and 6 ¼”
turn 90degrees with flat edge facing left and score at 4 ¼” (photo 1)
Snip out the corners at the cross of the score lines (photo 1 is what your card should look like)
Trim ½” of the top (on each side) (Photo 1.5)
>> fold right point up to form a triangle – edge to edge.  Repeat on Left point. (forgot to photo)
>> open at top of the triangle and fold flat to form a square (photo 2). Repeat on Left point
>> Fold this back and use glue to adhere to just the triangle portion (photo 3 & 4.1). Repeat on Left point
>> ONLY ON THE RIGHT SQUARE glue the inside flat (Photo 4). Left side remains open (photo 5)
TIME TO DECORATE!
>> Adhere your coordinating card stock to both Squares (photo 6)
>> Stamp your design & sentiment on the VV 3 ¾”x4 1/8” and the VV 1 ¾”x1 ¾”
>> adhere VV 3 ¾”x4 1/8” to inside of the card (photo 7)
>> adhere VV 1 ¾” X1 ¾” to the left square (photo 8)

Fold right point at score line and then left point, Top point folds and fits into the left square to hold the card closed (photo 9).

Hope this tutorial was helpful and not too confusing to follow. I appreciate any comments you may have.

Keep on stampin’ everyone!
