Tutorial for trifold card
Here's a tutorial I've made as I have been asked how i made this card and i cant find it anywhere on the web and i was sent a card a year or so back like this but i cant find it i know its here as i keep them all lol, any way here goes and please dont shout as its my first one lol.
Hello folks well this is a first for me doing a tutorial some folks have asked how i made my trifold card, well here goes
You need a sheet of 12x12 card Paper cutter, scissors 4 sheets of paper, length of ribbon pearls to match and Martha Stewart punches or you can use whatever punches you have and some double sided tape.
You will now need to Score your card at 6inches or 15 centimetres both ways across and at 9 inches or 23 centimetres as in picture,
fold your score lines them flatten them back out just to make it easier to cut , you can now cut off the shaded parts in picture above so you end up with this strange shape in the picture below
now you can make your folds as in the picture below and start to decorate your card
cut your first piece of paper to 141/2 centimetres square add your double sided tape to the edges and across the middle stick in place
now continue cutting and adding your papers and fold your pocket flap up attach double sided tape to the edges inside to secure the pocket as in the picture below
cut a strip of card just under 6 inches to go along the flap punch with what ever you have then attach with double sided tape on the inside you then cut your paper to size to cover the bottom DO NOT stick the flap down as this is how your card stands up
You now need to attach your ribbon i've attached mine with double sided tape in the middle as you wont see it once you've attached your image to your card
well your pretty much done now here are some pictures of one i made earlier
the first one is opened out completely showing you the inside
the next picture is showing you the card completely showing you the outside
in the picture below the card is folded ans the ribbon is tied
in this picture its open so you can see how the card stands up
in this picture the ribbon is tied to keep the flap shut
Well i hope you can understand my instructions ok if not then email me and i will try to help you out. I hope you enjoy making this as much as i did, take care.
