One Minute Fold Card - Tutorial

Heya crafters!

Shruti here and am back on Lulupu to share with you guys a pretty little folded card I learnt the other day. It is probably the easiest card making tutorial ever! You can even get your kids to make this.. trust me, they’ll have fun making it!

Now.. I don’t know what they call this fold.. Maybe Khush can help me out here. Meanwhile, I am gonna call it the One Minute Fold Card..

Here is how it looks..

And this is how the inside of the card looks like. You can keep money or tags with messages written inside. :)



Step 1.

Take any square sized paper. 6x6 or 8x8 works best! What I have here is a 6x6 pattern paper. Now fold the paper like I have in the picture below.


Step 2.

Prepare a little pocket for your card. I decided to go for a triangular pocket.


Step 3.

Gather embellishments of your choice to deck up the pocket. I have some flowers, a butterfly stamped and cut and a sentiment here. I have also tied a yellow and a black ribbon on the pocket. Once you’ve embellished it, apply glue only on to the edges of the pocket and stick it on to the pattern paper.


Step 4:

Now, let us make a top cover for the card. Since I used an 6x6 pattern paper, I cut out a 4.3x4.3 inches and stuck a MS punched paper on top of it.. You may embellish it however you like.

Step 5:

Now adhere this paper on to one of the corners of the card and stick a ribbon to the backside and top cover of a card like shown in the picture. I’ve used the red sticky tape here for it. That works best than a glue stick or liquid glue. Oh! yes.. I stuck some black card stock on to the flaps of the card as I was going for a black and yellow theme.. Once you have finished making this card completely you can always cover the back with a black card stock as well… :)

Step 6:

This is how the card should look like once you're done attaching the ribbon.


Step 7:

This is my favorite step! Now is the time to decorate the card and tie the ribbon into a pretty bow. I decided to keep it simple. So here is how I finished my card!!

Simple and easy to make, isn't it? Do try it out and click a picture or two and share it with us!
