Four Fold Card Tutorial

Hello everybody! I hope you've had a wonderful week and I hope you have lots of fun planned for those great fathers out there!

A few months ago, I posted a four fold card, and I received so much feedback from this card, wanting the directions. So, just to let you know, I didn't forget about you!........................ Mine is just a little different from the one I actually found, but so can yours. This fold has so much potential that every time you make one, you can change it in many ways.

The tutorial below is from................

Four Fold Card Tutorial
The stages of how to make it.... Start with a square of card... I usually make it with a 12 x 12inch card which results in a 6 inch square finished card but it can be made any size and 8 x 8 inch makes a 4 inch square card.
These folds can be easily made by folding each side to the centre point
ie., 12 x 12inch card  folds would be 3 inches from the sides and the centre area would be 6 x 6 inches.
Next cut out the four corner sections
Cut each flap to the centre point as shown in the photo below and Trim a narrow sliver from the inner edge of the loose edge of the flap. you can just see this in the pic. It is to enable the flaps to fold inward and lie flat neatly. 
 Fold flaps in half
Trimming the edges of the flaps allows them to lie flat neatly when folded inward as in the pic below.
Remember to add eyelets (for the 4 ribbon ties) only to the top layer of card as indicated by the markings.
You can also make different variations of this card by experimenting and changing the sizes of the flaps as I did in the  sample. 
The Card can also be made by sticking separate flaps to a card which is useful if you do not have card large enough to make the preferred finished size.

I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial..............I also hope you will check out the website!
Thank you so much for stopping by! Hugs Brenda
