Book Binder Fun Fold: Two Layouts

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am thrilled to share this Quick & Easy Fun Fold with you today. Super simple to make yet it adds a fun twist to your cards. I demonstrated two different layouts in my video (a replay of last nights Facebook LIVE) and then I’ll have another layout that you can create as well.

Let’s take a look at the video now …

Book Binder Fun Fold … Super Simple!

HORIZONTAL PROFILE (Above) How It’s Made  

  • Cut a 4-1/4 x 11″ piece of Soft Succulent cardstock for the card base. Score at 5-1/2 and 4-1/4.  Crease folds and add adhesive to the inside of the two scored lines.  The 4-1/4″ score line should be facing out on the front of the card. 
  • Cut a 4 x 4″ piece of Designer Paper (or cardstock) and adhere to card front. 
  • Cut a 1″ x 4″ strip from the tulip design designer series paper and adhere to the left side margin on the card front.

PORTRAIT PROFILE (Above) How It’s Made  

  • Cut a 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ piece of Evening Evergreen cardstock for the card base. Score at 4-1/4” and 5-1/4”.  Crease folds and add adhesive to the inside of the two scored lines… You can add your ribbon at this time.
  • To layer card front; cut Basic White 5-1/4” x 3” (Cut 2: one for inside and one for mat on front)  Cut Designer paper to 5” x 2-3/4” to layer on top of white.
  • Binder area is cut in Basic White at 5-1/4” x 3/4” and I embossed with “Brick” embossing folder for some texture.

Cool … right! Now, let me share another layout you can use when creating the Book Binder Fun Fold. It’s another portrait however the card stock is cut at the usual 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and it is scored at the 4-1/4″ and 5-1/4″ … now you will just position your “binder” to the “TOP” of your card.

The designer paper is cut at the same dimensions as well … however, you need to make sure you are “cutting” to the designer of the paper. On this card, my “binder” actually has the same designer paper, I just flipped it over. The greeting also comes from the Flowing Flowers stamp set, same as we used on our first card.

Enjoy making this fun fold … it’s really easy, and you’re going to have a blast creating with all your beautiful designer papers. Don’t forget, you can add in your embossing folders, die cuts or hand stamped items!
