Hey there Peeps! Ginny here and I’m dropping in to share a fun little project you can make with 1 sheet of paper, a ruler, and bits and pieces from your scrap and salvage box. And of course some super scrumptious ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. It’s a very easy tutorial….and you’ll be making these for every occasion! First a sneak peek of the finished project:
Okay…now for the tutorial:
You’ll need an 8″ x 8″ square of patterned cardstock. Make sure you pick a sheet that you like both sides of as you can see them when you fold it up. This looks like a bit of an difficult measuring process…but it’s really too easy. On the top left corner measure in 2 3/4 inches and make a small tic with a pencil. Turn the page 1/4 turn to the left and measure in 5 1/4 inch and make another tic. Connect the tic with a ruler and fold on that line. Now turn the page 1/4 turn again and measure in 2 3/4 inches and make a tic. Turn the page 1/4 turn again and mark at the 5 1/4 inch. Connect the dots with the ruler and fold on that line. Now you have the outside folds all ready. Now measure in 1 inch from the right side. Turn the page 1/4 turn and measure in 1 inch from the left. In the opposite corner do the same. With your ruler fold up on the lines creating a strip diagonally down the middle. Now you get to fold!
Fold down from the top.
Fold up from the bottom.
Now fold in from the sides. The white strip in the back is only there to show the shape of it folded.
