I'm always looking for quick folds to snazz up my Christmas cards quickly and easily, without a lot of extra effort. Because, let's face it, when it comes to holiday greetings, you almost always have to go a little simpler than you'd hoped, just to get them all done and mailed on time!
Well, here's a fast idea that turns an ordinary card into something a little more fun, with one easy score and fold. We can manage that!
Here's the opened card...
This trick is so easy--when you have your Simply Scored or personal trimmer out to score the center fold line at 4.25, add just one more score line at 1.25 inches. Fold the card in half with the additional scored line on the front cover. Fold that score back on itself. That's it!
If you want to decorate the panels, here's the SIMPLE measurements:
- 1x5.25 inch patterned paper to fit on that folded flap
- 4x5.25 inch paper for interior back of the card (visible when closed)
- 3.25 inches square focal point (or sized to fit your image)
- 3.5 inches square mat for the focal point
- 2.75x5.25 inch neutral panel for interior sentiment
