This tutorial will show you how to make a W-fold card out of one sheet of 8.5 x 11″ cardstock. I’m using the World of Good suite for my project, but you can use whatever colour you like!

Cut your cardstock as follows, and burnish all score lines:

Cardbase: 4.25 x 11, scored at 5.5″
W strip: 1.75 x 11, scored at 2.75, 5.5, and 8.25″
Panels: 2.5 x 2.75″ (4 pieces)

If desired, decorate the inside of your card with DSP (4 x 5.25″).

Decorate your four panels as desired. I used cardstock and DSP cut to 2-3/8 x 2-5/8″ to decorate the panels.

Attach the four panels to your W cardstock strip. I found it easiest to apply the adhesive to the cardstock strip, rather than the panels. Keep in mind the panels are somewhat narrower than the strip, so the adhesive shouldn’t go all the way to the edges.

The W strip with all panels added:

Fold up your W and apply adhesive to the back of the last panel. Attach to the inside right of your card.

Now apply adhesive to the back of the first panel of your W strip, and close your card. This panel will attach to the inside left of your card.

Here are some pics of the finished card:

Decorate the front of your card as desired.

Hello and welcome to another blog hop with the Seashore Stampers! So glad you could stop in today.

This month our theme is 3D projects. I always love using our Stampin’ Up! products to create fun and beautiful gift items, which I often use to spoil my club members, workshop attendees, and hostesses. I’ve got a special gift in mind to welcome back my club members for the Fall, but I don’t want to share that with you until after they’ve received it …. so I’ve got a different project to share today.

This project starts with our cute little Mini Pizza Boxes. These food-safe boxes come in a package of 8 boxes for just $8.25, and they are the perfect size for holding a collection of 3×3″ cards, a cookie or other treat, or any other fun (flat) item you can think of! I used the white box, but these handy boxes also come in gold (perfect for the holidays!).

The boxes take just seconds to assemble – no adhesive necessary – and then you can get to the fun part, decorating. I decided to try the herringbone technique with various pieces of Bumblebee DSP from Flowers for Every Season and the 2020-2022 In Color DSP Stack. This was my first try with this technique, and it was easier than I thought! I got so excited about it that I had to try it out again right away with the Rainbow Glimmer paper!

Here’s my finished box, with a sentiment from the Ridiculously Awesome stamp set added. I’ve been playing with that stamp set quite a bit, as it is the featured product for September’s Creativity to Go! When you subscribe by September 10th, you’ll receive this fantastic stamp set AND supplies and tutorials to create five cards. You can join from anywhere in Canada and enjoy a fun crafting experience at your own pace and convenience – click here to learn more, and subscribe!

I hope you enjoyed my project! Now don’t forget to click on the buttons below to continue on the blog hop, and enjoy all the other wedding theme creations! Click on “Previous” to visit Erica’s blog and “Next” to see what MiRan has created!

Happy Stampin’!
