Kate here with another easy handmade card template idea. This time, it is the easiest fun fold ever! This is a great card to show off both sides of a patterned paper.
Easy Fun Fold Card Idea

This fun fold card idea is another one that is great for double-sided patterned paper as it allows you to show off both sides of the paper.

how to make an easy fun fold flap card

To get started, cut your pieces as follows:

  • Double sided patterned paper: Cut (two) at 1 x 5 1/4 inches and (one) at 1 5/8 x 5 1/4 inches 
  • Solid cardstock A2 card base  (4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches folded): Score the front flap at 1 x 1/4 inches. 

To assemble this fun fold card:

Fold the scored section of the card base back onto itself and adhere in place with strong adhesive.

Attach the larger of the patterned paper pieces to the front of the card on the larger panel.  Attach one of the smaller 1 inch strips to the folded back edge of the card. Attach the other 1 inch piece to the inside of the panel so that it shows when the card is folded shut.

Be sure to flip over one of the pieces of patterned paper to showcase both sides of the patterned paper.

You can make this design in either portrait or landscape. Just make sure to cut your patterned paper with the correct orientation. (In this case making sure my bees are flying in the right direction.)

    I love the simplicity of this design. If you do not glue the flap down, it is a stand up card. I also made the piece glued to the back of the card a little larger so the spacing is the same between all pieces from the front. Thank you
