Today’s Scrapbook USA Expo segment on My Craft Channel features a fun and super easy Five-Fold Card.
You can watch the video version or follow my tutorial below.
I love My Mind’s Eye product for this card because their cardstock is really thick so it is nice and sturdy plus their 2-sided paper is fantastic. Both sides are always equally as nice as the other.
Today I am using My Mind’s Eye’s brand new “Collectable” series. (I love every last piece of this line!)
Start out with a sheet of cardstock 8X12
You will need to score it on the long side at 4 inches and again at 8 inches.
Then turn it and on the short side score it at 2 inches and again at 6 inches.
Then you will want to make 4 cuts (free hand or with a cutter, either way.) Cut on the score line and end
when you hit the cross score.
Now you have 4 flaps. Completely cut off the top 2 (as seen below) then on the bottom 2 flaps you will want to cut off 1/2 so they are now shorter. Fold them in to check their size. you don’t want them to overlap just meet up with each other.
Next you will make a diagonal cut. I am not good with scissors so I lined up the top corner with the bottom corner and used my trimmer but I am sure free hand works well too.
Almost done, Use some embellishments to jazz up the inside. You could add a gift card envelope to one size or put a wallet size photo in if you wanted.
Now, just fold it up….
…add an embellishment and ribbon and there you go.
Super cute! Plus lot’s of different fun things that can be done with this card!
