This month is all about Fun Fold cards. So I hit the internet to find a fold I’ve never done and came across this serviette/napkin fun fold from Beccy in Australia (link further down.)
To start this card I chose a random light yellow cardstock I had on hand, and trimmed it to 11”x 11” square. I don’t have much in 12”x 12” cardstock so I’m not sure of the color, but it’s not So Saffron or Daffodil Delight. Then I scored the sheet at 2 3/4” then at 8 1/4”, turned the sheet 90 degrees and scored again to create the main fold lines. Then you fold up each 4 corners into the center of the entire sheet and create the secondary folds.
Next I used the Delightful Daisy DSP to create the triangle accents for the card. Cut 1 sheet into a 5”x 5” square piece (cutting this into 4 triangles). Then cut 2 sheets into 4 3/4” x 4 3/4” square pieces (cutting each of these sheets into 8 triangles. For a total of 16 smaller triangles.) Next I cut a sheet of Whisper White into a 5 1/4” x 5 1/4” square to decorate the center inside with my sentiment.
Then to hold the card together I cut a 12” long by 1 3/4” wide piece of cardstock to wrap around the center. I added some Night of Navy ribbon and placed a yellow Daisy to hide the seem in the center. This now holds the card from flopping all the corners around.
I have to give credit to “Beccy’s Place Blog.” I came across her blog on my hunt for fun folds and she has great instructions on her website. Click link below for step-by-step instructions.
This fun fold card was fun and easy to make. Once you create the fold, you can use any extra scraps of DSP you have on hand. Since the largest piece is 5x5”, mixing and matching DSP in similar color pallets would work well too. Also a Red, White, and Blue theme for the 4th of July would look fantastic!

Hi I'm Nicole and started knitting about 10 years ago. Then took up stamping about a year ago after being inspired by a friend. Now I have decided to see where it takes me.
