I hope you had a safe and fun holiday weekend!
I felt the need to play around with this challenge from The Paper Players today –
Who doesn’t love a good fancy fold??
I repurposed a the kite fold and created a dog house –
When you open it, you see the nifty fold –
I have made a few different things with this versatile fold too. A bird house, a graduation cap and recently a kite.
For this card, the base is 3 1/2″ x 10. I scored initially at 5″. On each side, I placed 2 marks 1 3/4″ from the center score line on the top and bottom of the strip, (4 marks total). I then scored diagonally from mark to mark crossing over the center 5″ score line. I folded each score line, creasing as you normally do. I pushed the two diagonal score lines in creating the triangle at the top!
I decorated the house by adding the Designer Series Paper. I used solid card stock for the roof. I fussy cut one of the dogs and a ball from the pattern paper.
Please let me know if you have any questions about the fold.
