Who else likes to make Fun Fold cards? If you are like me I’m always looking for something to make my cards a little different. A Fun Fold card fits the bill. I’m not sure if this fold has a name, but I like to call it a Tuck & Fold Fun Fold Card because the two flaps on the left hand side tuck inside of each other.
This view of the card will give you a better idea of how the the two sides of the card tuck into each other when folded.
The card has a belly-band that slides off so the card can be opened. And inside you’ll find this.
The paper I used is one of the FREE with a $50 product purchase that is in the new SALE-a-Bration catalog called Flowers and Field Designer Series Paper. It has a great mix of fun colors and patterns. This card is super easy to make. This is what you will need:
