Folding card tutorial



En venninne av meg hadde kjøpt et baby lommetørkle hun skulle gi bort i gave, men smart som hun er la hun merke til hvor flott lommetørkleet var brettet, og kopierte dette over til papir, før gaven ble gitt bort. En ny og fantastisk bretteteknikk har sett dagens lys. Denne brettingen kan brukes som et kort i seg selv, eller som et veldig flott skrivefelt inni kortet. I min tutorial i dag vil jeg vise eksempler på begge deler.
Du trenger først og fremst kartong, mønsterark og ”All around the page” puncher for å være med å leke.

*******

A friend of mine bought a baby napkin as a gift, and she noticed how beautiful the napkin was folded. Smart as she is, she copied the folding into paper before she gave away the napkin, and now I have a new and wonderful folding technique to show you.
This folding can be used as a card, or as a very beautiful inside of a card. I will show you both in my tutorial today.
What you need to play along is cardstock, patterned papers and “All around the page” punches.


For å lage et kort med denne bretteteknikken bruker jeg en hel 12”/12” kartong.
Preg og brett ved 3” og 9”, begge veier, som du ser jeg har gjort på bildet.

******
To make a card with this folding technique, I start with a 12” / 12” cardstock.
Fold the cardstock by 3” and 9” both ways, like you can see in the picture.




Brett ut igjen, og snu kartongen.

Marker midten, og brett alle hjørnene inn mot midtpunktet. Brett ut igjen, og snu tilbake.

*******

Undo the foldings, and turn the cardstock.
Make a mark in the middle, and fold all the corners in against the center.
Unfold it, and turn it again.

 


Nå er tiden kommet for å lage en punch kant rundt hele kartongen.

Løft sidene forsiktig opp, så vil brettene dine lage formen du ser på bildet.

*******

Now make a nice punched edge around the whole cardstock.
If you now help the card a little by lifting the sides carefully, your card will get the shape you can see in the picture.

 

Lag skarpe bretter for å forme kortet som dette.
******
Make the folds sharp to shape the card like this.



Nå gjenstår det bare å brette de små trekantene tilbake, og så er kortet ferdig formet.

*******


Now all you have to do is to fold back the small triangles, and the shape of your card is done.

 

Jeg bruker to mønsterark når jeg dekorerer kortet mitt. Matchende papirer med god kontrast i fargene gir et flott resultat. Det er på tide å kutte trekanter!!


Jeg starter med å kutte kvadrater, og så kutter jeg disse til fire trekanter. Jeg skal prøve å lede dere gjennom det:)

******

To decorate my card I use two matching patterned papers. It is time to make triangles!
I start by cutting squares, and then I cut the square into four triangles.

I will try to guide you through this:)



De store trekantene inni og utenpå kortet/ The big triangles innside and outside the card:


Kutt to kvadrater på 5 ½”, og kutt så hver av disse til fire trekanter. Du har nå 8 trekanter i denne størrelsen.

*******

Make two squares 5 ½”, and cut each of them into four triangles. You now have 8 triangles in this size.

 

De små trekantene inni kortet/ The small triangles innside the card.


Kutt 2 kvadrater på 3 ¼”, og kutt så hver av disse til fire trekanter.
Du har nå 8 trekanter i denne størrelsen.

*******

Make two squares 3 ¼”, and cut each of them into four triangles.
You now have 8 triangles this size.




Klaffene utenpå kortet / The flips outside the card

Kutt et kvadrat på 2 ¾”, og kutt så denne til fire trekanter.
Make one square 2 ¾”, and cut it into four triangles.



Under klaffene utenpå kortet / Under the flips outside the card.

Kutt et kvadrat på 3 ¾”, og kutt så denne til fire trekanter.
Make one square 3 ¾”, and cut it into four triangles.

 


Nå skal alle trekantene limes på rett plass på kortet. Her ser du mitt kort. Jeg har også laget et skrivefelt i midten, og stemplet swirler i de fire ledige hjørnene.

*******

Now it is time to fasten the triangles in their right places.
Here is my card. I have made a writing space in the middle of the card, and I have stamped some swirls in the free corners.




Nå lager jeg et papirbelte for å lukke kortet. Her vil jeg også lime på motiv og pynt.

Kartongen jeg bruker er 12” / 1 ½”, og her har jeg brettet den i to.

*******

Now I will make a paper belt that will help me to close the card.
This is also where I will add my image and decorations.
I have used cardstock 12” / 1 ½”,and folded it in the middle.

 

Neste skritt er å lime på et bånd, og dekke det med mønsterpapir.

*******


Next step is to add a ribbon, and cover it with patterned paper.

 

Her ser du hvordan jeg har limt på halve beltet på baksiden av kortet.

*******


Here you can see how I have fastened half of the belt on the back of my card.

 

Her er kortet mitt helt ferdig.

*******


Here my card is all finished.

 

Her er et annet kort jeg har laget på samme måte.

*******

Here is another card I have made the same way.







Om du vil bruke denne bretteteknikken som en innside til kortet ditt, så starter du med kartong på
8 ½” / 8 ½”, og gjør resten på samme måte. Du må selvfølgelig tilpasse trekantene til å passe den nye størrelsen. Her er et eksempel fra meg.

*******

If you want to use this folding technique for an inside of your card, you just start with 8 ½”/ 8 ½” cardstock, and do the rest the same way as I have showed you. You will of course have to adjust the triangles to fit the new size.
Here I have made an example.




Jeg håper dere likte tutorialen, og lykke til med brettekortet.

*******
I hope you liked my tutorial, and good luck with your folding card.
