Fun Fold Friday #31 - Flowers for Every Season Double Flap Fold Card

 Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday Series and this week I have made a Double Flap Fold card with a belly band.  I'm really not sure what the proper name for this one is and I've seen several on YouTube but they were all called different things and all made using US size card stock, so I have changed up the dimensions to suit UK A4. Let me show you how I made it, you can also check out my video tutorial on my YouTube channel, just click on the link below.


1 piece of Just Jade card stock 5 7/8" x full length of A4 (11 3/4"),1 piece 1" by the full length of A4 and 1 piece approx 3 5/8" x 2 1/2"
1 piece of whisper white 4" x 5 3/4" and a piece for the sentiment approx 3 1/8" x 2"
2 pieces of dsp 3 1/4" x 5 3/4", 2 pieces 1 1/2" x 5 3/4" and 1 piece 2 3/8" x 5 3/4" (you can use any combination, 5 different, all the same, whatever you like)
Just jade ink
Basic rhinestones
Happiest of Birthdays stamp set
Simply scored
Die cutting machine
Stitched so sweetly dies
Multipurpose adhesive


On the long side score the just jade card at 2 1/2", 5 7/8" and 10" then fold and burnish all the score lines - see picture - one folds back on itself to make one flap and the other folds in, they will all lie on top of each  other as shown.

Stamp the largest sentiment from the set on the whisper white layer with just jade ink and then add to the inside of the card.

Adhere all the dsp layers to the folds inside and out as shown.

Die cut the smaller rectangle from the whisper white and the larger one from the just jade (to fit the sizes given above in the recipe).  Stamp the other sentiment on the whisper white layer and then adhere to the just jade layer.

Wrap the belly band piece loosely around the card and leaving a bit overlapping, cut off the excess.  Add glue to the inside of the top piece and fix together, make sure that the belly band can slide up and down the card.  To fix the sentiment layer to the belly band, add three dimensionals to the belly band and then centre the sentiment over the top and press down. Add a few of the rhinestones to give it a bit of bling.

Here are a couple of close ups of the misty moonlight one that I made too:

There you go, a quick and simple fun fold card, I hope that you like it and will give it a try.
