Default F4A87...Triangle Flap Fold...(10/21/11)

Today's my littlest sister's birthday...and here is a zany card fold to match her quirky style!

Let's make Triangle Flap Fold Cards!


They are really easy once you know the trick. (For a few pix to go along with the explanation, flip or flop over to my blog.)

The HOW TO Steps:
1. Cut a 2 x 3 inch template out of a scrap of paper. Fold in half at 1.5 inches.
2. Cut a piece of double sided patterned paper 3 x 12 inches. Fold in half at 6inches. Then, place your template on the right hand side. With a pencil, make a light dot, right in the center of the crease. Basically, it will be 2 inches from the right side and 1.5 inches from the top. You will do this to the top of the card. Then open the card and repeat to the inside.
3. Use a craft knife to make your slices. Tip to remember. Open your card up before cutting. The top side is cut from the center point to the top right edge. And the inside, or bottom of the card, is cut from the center mark to the bottom corner.
4. Then, tuck the folds cuts together and use your decorating talent to make it unique!

Edited: OR....there is a tutorial on the Resource Page with a different set of dimensions....with a video!!! (Search for "slit latch gift holder.") Thanks, Beate!!

Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.
If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!


Need help linking a card? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Got to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.
You’re done!

Default F4A87 Tis the Season

Interesting card fold, Dawn! I was so confused at first I decided not to make a card, then I couldn't help but try it. After I got it cut and the flaps folded right, it was cool! I kept the design very simple because as I said in my post, I'd already confused myself enough for one day! :Heehee!

I added one more pix to my blog for those who might like a different view of how the 2 cuts slide together.

This was my second try -- I did it with copy paper first in case I didn't get it right. A fun technique, Dawn.

I'm glad to see someone used this fun card fold in a challenge! I saw a card like this a few weeks ago, and I made one back then. It's really not that hard to do.

It will be fun to see the different ways people decorate it.

Thanks, Dawn, for the challenge!

HYCCT In a Flap by Cook22 - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers
After I worked out the right dimensions for my template, instead of marking the outside and then the inside, I just stuck my paper piercer through both layers to give me the start point for cutting. Fun, I'll definitely try this again - probably with your dimensions as mine made my triangle take up too much depth in the card .

Default PAPER Piercer

Hi Sabrina! When I figured how the flaps folded, I made my template with a pierced hole, as well. I did that to make sure I got the exact center to get the cuts right on my actual printed paper. It worked.

Default Added Picture

In general, "folds" are a bit confusing to me. In the wee hrs when I made my card, eventually, the light bulb went on. I love that you added the pic to your blog post later this a.m. It will make it much easier for others who are "fold challenged" like me. Thanks, Dawn!

Default Triange Flap Fold Tutorial

Hi Beate! Thanks for providing this link! Resources was the first place I looked for a video but couldn't find it because I was only looking for it by the name of Triangle Flap Fold. I'm sure between Dawn adding the "extra' pic and this tutorial, many members will make a card for the challenge.

This was a very easy card to MAKE, but horrible hard for me to figure out. Think my brain needs a bit of extra exercise? Here's mine.
