Double Z Fun Fold Halloween Cards 2 Ways

I love fun fold cards, and these double Z fold cards are so cool, and yet so easy!!!  I made 2 different kinds, one vertical and one horizontal; one simple and one complex.  A little something for everyone!!

This post also contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.  Various companies provided me with some product to create this project.  The opinions I share are solely my own.


Here is a video to learn how to make each of these cards.

Check out the video for some amazing GIVEAWAYS!!  This video is all apart of a card video hop - so check out the video to see all the details and the prizes!!

The first card I made was a scene with a horizontal fun fold card.  I layered up with lots of the stamps and dies from Maker's Movement to make a trick or treat scene that opens up to make a larger scene when pulled open.


Measurements
Cut cardstock to make an A2 sized card that is horizontal (4.25 x 11 opened)
Fold top in half to make top fold over for the Z fold.
Cut 1 x 11 strip for 2nd Z fold - fold in half, then fold right side in half again.



The second card is a simple version with a vertical fun fold.  I only used a couple of the stamped and colored Maker's Movement images and then some fun colored paper.  All the elements are held together with Xyron adhesive.  The larger elements with the Xyron Tape runner, and the little die cut pieces with the Xyron Sticker Maker.


Measurements
Cut cardstock to make an A2 sized card that is horizontal (5.5 x 8.5 opened)
Fold top in half to make top fold over for the Z fold.
Cut 1 x 8.5 strip for 2nd Z fold - fold in half, then fold right side in half again.

Twisted Gate Fun Fold Card using Scrapbook

I just love fun fold or fancy fold cards.  So I tried my hand a fun new fold called a twisted gate fold card.  My fun twist on it is I used a fun patterned paper stack as the main layers for the cards, a great way to use of all those fun papers we have in our stash!

This post also contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.  Various companies provided me with some product to create this project.  The opinions I share are solely my own.


Here is a video on how to make the cards, with a little fun chit chat :)


I made 3 versions of the card, the only change is how it is all orientated.  If it opens to the side, upwards, etc.  Here is the first card.


For this card the opening is pulled up to allow a horizontal stamp.


The second card I die cut out a bird from one of the patterned papers as the front element.

Measurements for the card to allow it to fit into an A2 sized envelope.

Base

7.5 x 5.5 in
Score at 2.5 and 5 inches

Score at diagonal on the left and right sides to make the twist fold as seen in the video.

Mat dimensions

4 x 2.25 in - cut on the diagonal for triangle sections.


For this card it opens sideways, allowing a vertical stamp inside.


And the last card all held together with Xyron adhesive. I used the Xyron tape runner to place all the elements of the papers to each side, it works like a charm!!



What fun fold card will you make?

DIY Party Treat Bags Made with Scrapbooking Supplies

My daughter had a birthday party and she wanted to decorate some treat bags to give to her friends at the party.  Here are just a few to give you an idea of what we made!



Here is a video to show how we made these fun bags!


We started by coloring in the papers from Adornit with various types of markers from Arteza.  Cut them out and use the Xyron Creative Station Lite with the permanent adhesive to stick the colored papers to the pink papers, and then did the same method to stick the matted paper to the brown gift bag.  Using the Xyron Creative Station Lite makes this whole process so easy and we had a blast making them!


The colors and themes are endless for how you can make these bags, just switch out the the Paintable sheets and cardstock colors to suit your needs!!  My daughter pick out her favorites which were pink, mermaids, cats, and flamingos!!
