I found a really cool YouTube video today that shows you how to make this fun folding card from a triangle. I was going to try to make a video tutorial on it myself, but I can't find my tripod. I think we left it at the house in North when we moved a couple weeks ago. I'll have to go back this weekend and see if I can find it there.
You can find the tutorial video I watched from TOMSHACKJ. Click here to see it. It's easy to do. Really. And the cool part is it will fit into a regular A2 size envelope!! I used papers left over from the Quilt Card I made yesterday.
I'll try to explain the steps and measurements, but I know it will make a lot more sense if you watch the video link above.
- 11" x 11" pattern paper
- 2 each of 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" squares for right and left flaps
- 1 1/2" x 3 1/2" sentiment mat for front
- 1 1/4" x 3 1/4" sentiment mat for front
- 1" x 3" sentiment mat for front
- 4 1/4" x 4 1/8" inside mat
- 3 7/8" x 3 3/4" inside mat
- Turn pattern paper face down
- Fold point to point
- Score @ 5 1/2" and 3" vertically from edge on both sides
- Score @ 3 1/2" horizontally from top point
- Snip off small triangle area of overlapping score lines
- Use bone folder to crease all folds
- At 3" score line on both sides, open fold and push flat to make angled square
- Embellish as desired
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! I'm going to sit here and make some more of these. Too fun and easy!
