Learn to make a Zig Zag Gatefold Card

Once a month I hold a Zoom Stamping Night for my team. They don’t actually know what they’re making when they turn up. Thank goodness they trust me right!! This time round we made a Zig Zag Gatefold Card which was inspired by Amanda Fowler from the UK.

And because it turned out really well, I showed how to make them for my Facebook Live today.

Here’s the card I made last night with the gals.

Here’s the basics of the folds for you:

  • Start with 12″ x 6″ DSP (video also shows you can use 6″ x 6″)
  • Score along the long side at 2″, 4″ and 8″, 10″
  • Mark at 4″ on the short sides
  • CUT from the 4″ and 8″ top score lines down to the 4″ mark on the sides
  • CUT from the 2″ and 10″ bottom score lines to the 4″ mark on the sides
  • Fold in, then fold out
  • Decorate 🙂

I hope you have a go a making one. Great fun, another great way to use up your DSP.

Cheers for now:
