Folding Card

A few weeks ago my crafting friends Chris and Kate took me to a SU class run by Julie Kettlewell. Julie credited the design to Chris Chamberlain. Thanks ladies!

I made another version and took this along to our team meeting. I had a lot of requests to show how it was made. First, here's the box and the card.  I will show you how to make the flower later on.

To make the card I am using the Simply scored board and scoring tool. Take a 12 x 12 inch (30cm) paper and mark both sides 3 inches in from the edge.

Turn it through 90 degrees and score again so you have scored all four sides 3 inches from the edge.

Put the diagonal scoring plate on the simply scored board. Score diagonally from centre to centre of each side as shown below. 

When you have finished it should look like this.

Now score a diagonal line on each of the four corner squares as shown below.

When you have scored all four outer squares it should look like this.

Fold along each scored line backwards and forwards using a bone folder. You should now be able to fold your card to look like this.

To decorate the inside cut two 10 x 10 cm squares diagonally. Cut eight 7 x 7 cm squares diagonally. I have used contrasting papers from the same designer paper series. Decorate the centre panel as desired.

Turn the card over to decorate the reverse. Cut two 10 x 10 cm squares.

To make the belly band cut a piece of card 30.5 cm x 4 cm. Decorate and adhere a 20cm length of ribbon to each end.

I will put instruction on how to make the box later.
