It's time for a new Just Add Ink challenge - Just add a fancy fold - & it's probably no surprise that I suggested this challenge. There are so many fab fancy fold cards out there to try but I've decided to share the fancy fold that started my obsession with folding back in 2008 - a patterned paper gift card folder. This is still a firm fave of mine & many of my class lovelies, so I hope it'll become a fave of yours too.
The folder is so simple to make, with just a sheet of 12 x 12 inch double sided paper, & needs no cutting or adhesive. It looks like a regular card but opens up to show two pockets. I usually include two postcards - one to write a message & the other to hold a gift card, cash or photo.
Here's how it looks open:
& from the inside with cards. You can't see but I added some clear Wink of Stella to the poinsettias on the cards for a little extra sparkle.
You can see the folder shape better with the cards removed:
EDITED 21 Oct 2015: I've posted my full tutorial for you to download plus 2 more folders in here in this post.

Until next time, inky wishes, Di
