Napkin Fold Origami Card

Hello Crafters,

Today I share with you a funky oragami style card that is something totally different!

Napkin Fold Origami Handmade Card

To make this card I started with an 8″ x 8″ piece of cardstock. Score at 2″ & 6″ rotate 90 degrees and score the same.

Using the diagonal plate on your Scoreboard, score at 4″ & 6″ on each side.

The folding is hard to explain, but you may be able to follow from the diagrams below.

Here is the belly band that goes around the card to keep it closed which is 9″ x 1 1/4″ and the DSP is 9″ x 1″.

The diamond is 2″ x 2″ and the DSP is 1 3/4″ x 1 3/4″

And here it is opened up!

The Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper to decorate this card is:

8 squares of DSP 1 3/4″ cut in half diagonally to form triangles

2 squares of DSP 2 1/2″ cut in half diagonally to form triangles

1 square of 3 3/4″ for the middle of the card to write your message

 

This was such a fun card to make and not as difficult as it appears. I am sure I will be making plenty more of these in the months to come as both my girls and their friends have multiple parties!!!!

Birthday Calendar

Hello Crafters,

Today I have a craft project for you, to help you remember those birthdays during the year!

This is so much easier to have hanging on a wall to glance at quickly and see who is having a birthday this month, don’t you agree?

Birthdays Calendar

I have used the Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper (#130145) and the coordinating cardstock; Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple, Crisp Canteloupe, Bermuda Bay, Summer Starfruit and Basic Gray. I used the 3/4″ circle punch for the Months and the 1″ circle punch for the names hanging from the gorgeous new Gold Baker’s Twine (#132975) in the Occasions Catalogue.

The “Birthdays” were die cut with the Typeset Alphabet Bigz dies (#127553) in Raspberry Ripple cardstock.

The white background was embossed with the Arrows TIEF (#132187), also in the new Occasions Catalogue, before being mounted onto a piece of heavy brown card that came as the backing sheet with the 12×12 Foil sheets. Waste not, want not, is my motto!!!!
