four way fold

(If you prefer written tutorials, click here! If you prefer video tutorials, read on!)

I just love this four-way fold card that I learned recently! It’s got all the WOW of a tri-shutter fold card, but you can use 8.5 x 11″ cardstock instead of 12 x 12″.

You’ll need:

Cardstock, 2 pieces of the same colour:
1 piece 4-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, score score along long side @ 4-1/4″
1 piece 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 2-1/8″, 4-1/4″, & 6-3/8″

(Since I can’t see the 6-3/8” mark on my trimmer, I find it easier to rotate the cardstock and score it at 2-1/8” from the other side.)

DSP:
2 pieces 2″ x 5.25″
2 pieces 2″ x 2-7/8″
4 pieces 1-1/8″ x 2″
1 piece 4 x 5.25”

This fun treat holder is really quick and easy to make! It makes a perfect party favour, seasonal treat for Easter, Christmas, Valentines, or other, or just a ‘thinking of you’ gift for someone you care about.

Cardstock: 2 x 6.5” – score at 2.75 and 3.75”
DSP: 6.5 x 1.5” – score at 1, 3, 4, 6”

The treat holder holds three mini chocolate bars (Hershey’s nuggets), so you will also need three strips of DSP to wrap the nuggets, cut to 3 x 1.5”.

Start by scoring your cardstock and DSP. After scoring, you can use the scalloped tag topper punch to punch both ends of your cardstock.

Use strong adhesive (e.g. Tear and Tape) to fold the long DSP strip into a band.

This band will slide easily over the cardstock treat holder.

Use the three smaller strips of DSP to wrap around your chocolate nuggets.

Place the nuggets between the two score lines on your cardstock treat holder.

Decorate the treat holder as desired, including an 8″ length of ribbon to tie it closed.

I’ve also posted a video of this project!

score

Score your larger piece of cardstock at 2-1/8″, 4-1/4″, & 6-3/8″. Then, as below, make two cuts between the outer score lines at 1-1/4″ from each long edge.

Crease all your folds. Your card base now looks like this:

And from above:

Attach the other piece of cardstock by applying one piece of tear and tape on the scored section. The tear and tape is slightly wider than the scored piece, so after you remove the backing from the tape, run your fingertip along the tape to pull down the bit of tape that overhangs the cardstock and stick it to the tape on the cardstock.

When you stand your card up, it will look like this:

Now add your Designer Series Paper!

Here’s what the card looks like now:

Finally, embellish as desired.
