If you read here regularly or follow me on social media, you know how much I love my fun fold cards. I’m always on the look-out for a new fun fold idea on which I can showcase current products. It’s really my favorite thing. I’m to the point now where when I sit down to make a card, I have to purposefully think about NOT making a fun fold card.
Each month when my Paper Pumpkin kit arrives, I design an alternate project using products from the kit. Eleven times out of twelve I design a fun fold card using the kits’ contents but add a few other supplies not in the kit, as well. I upload a video tutorial to YouTube each month so that the project can be easily duplicated.
What benefit are those video tutorials if I’m not a Paper Pumpkin subscriber?
You can learn so many things when watching a Paper Pumpkin video tutorial! Learning the details and measurements of the fun fold card itself is worth the time, whether you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber or not. You can use your own materials to create the cards after seeing how to put it together.
Each month I invite my Paper Pumpkin subscribers to take a free class where we make this alternate project together on Zoom. The items in the February 2022 Paper Pumpkin kit opened up so many possibilities. Just check out all the amazing pieces I had to choose from for my project!
Here are the pieces I chose to use for my alternate project:
And here's what I made:
The pattern for this Triangle Pocket Card consists of a regular sized card based (5 1/2" x 8 1/2") and three simple score lines. Fold the card in half, as usual, then fold the corners up. Cut a square 3 1/2" in size, then cut that in half diagonally. I used one of those halves to keep the corners up to create a pocket. Cut the other half in half again to fill in the bottom corners of the card. Fill the pocket with leaves from the kit, then fill in with Fresh Freesia and Rich Razzleberry flowers cut from the Pierced Blooms Dies found in the Annual Catalog.
After completing the front of the card, I jazzed up the center of the card, as well, using the stamp from the Paper Pumpkin kit and Bumblebee, Rich Razzleberry, and Pear Pizzazz ink.
