Valentines Multi-Fold Card Tutorial


 Today I’m sharing a tutorial for The Paper Variety on how to make two different types of Multi-Fold Cards which are just perfect for Valentines Day. These lil’ multi-fold cards are simple to make and what I like about them the most, is they give you a reason to use up some of them purrty scrap pieces you’ve been hoarding piling up and can’t seem to throw out ’cause you totally heart the collection.

Whenever I’m making these multi-fold cards, I’ll repeat over and over to myself  “Measure Twice, Score Once“, “Measure Twice, Score Once“.   Even though I may think I’m a paper carpenter, I still make measurement errors…Ack!

Wrap a ribbon around your card and tie it with a bow to keep it closed. When adding your image to the front of the card remember to only adhere it to one side of the triangle flap. Otherwise, you won’t be able to open the card.
