Well, second installment of fun folds from our local club night. If you missed the first fold, you can find it here. I will be doing a series of card folds, and have an idea for putting together samples of each in a book. I don’t know about you, but I find if I have a physical sample with instructions at my fingertips, I am much more likely to use the different folds I’ve learned.
Our next fold is the Z fold card (which will be followed next week by the double z fold card).
Again, I don’t have photos of my samples to show. I made them, but need to set up a photo session with my cards. 🙂 So, I turned to google and found this.
I don’t know if her card will fit in a standard envelope, but if you followed any of the samples in the instructions, they will fit. 🙂
Here are the instructions:
Z-Fold: You can fold your card base in any configuration that works for you. Here are some measurements for a standard card (4 ¼ x 5 ½ ).
All measurements are from a 8 ½ x 5 ½ card base.
Option 1: Score at 3 3/8 & 5 ½
2: Score at 2 3/4 & 4 7/8
3: Score at 1 ¼ & 4 ¼
Decorate as desired
Again, a very nice pattern whose use will put a lovely dent in my scrap box! Not only that, it is fun to have a different take on regular cards when sending them to my grandchildren.. They seem to think that these folded cards are extra special.
