O.K had to use up the last of the papers and had a question about how to make the folder card so thought I'd kill 2 birds with one stone and do another folder card with quick photo instructions Used another sweet art ebony stamp for this ('kitten'), just got 1 more to make now!
Here are instructions for the folder, (I find pictures much easier to follow than words):
For all my folder cards I use a piece of A4 cardstock trimmed to make a 5.5" wide strip. Then score and fold as follows This will give a 5.5" square card once folded (obviously can adjust if you have smaller square envelopes)
To make the folded edges to create your folder you need two squares of paper folded as follows:
That's all there is to it. You then decorate as you wish. Here's the folder from side view.
If you like you can add ribbon like I did in earlier card to tie up the ends but I find my top flap is long enough and fairly heavy that it stays shut. You can use basic principle and apply to 12x12 card to make longer/bigger cards if you so wish. Hope this has been useful for some of you and is clear enough (can click on photos if the writing isn't big enough to read)
