Sept. SSSD Tutorial

Hi SSSD ladies. This month I'm going to show you how to make a Twisted Fold Card for our swap. It makes a great Gift Card Holder. 

Start with a 4 1/4 x 11 piece of card stock and you may want to start out with a practice piece as I did to figure out which way the fold goes. See the dark line on my score board. Take a sharpie marker and do the same thing on your board. It will help you with projects that are scored on the diagonal.

Line a top corner and a bottom corner on the line and score. 

Fold on score line. Take that fold and line it up against the top of the board and score the center at
 5 7/8.

Fold on this score line. You want a pocket on the front and one on the inside. Now that you know the correct direction to fold do your real card base. Keep the first one as your pattern for future cards. 

Take a piece of DP 2 x 5 1/2". Cut it on the diagonal as shown and attached one to the front and one to the inside. 

Now take another piece of DP 4 1/4 x 4 1/2 and cut it on the diagonal as shown..

Unfold card and attach one of the pieces. Trim off the bottom corner. 

See how it looks when refolded. 

Do the same thing for the front.

Now decorate your card.
