I have still been demoing throughout the Summer all over Ireland and I thought for my first post back after many months away I would show something close to my heart....................a lazy fold!!!
This is a front Panel card that many of you will have seen around the place but there tends to be a lot of measuring so I thought to myself - "how can I make this the ............LAZY way.
For those of you who saw it in my demos you will appreciate how quickly you can do this and for those of you who haven't just give it a try. I can make the card (minus decoration of course) in less then 1 minute - AWESOME :)
All you need is A4 card, a 12" ruler (any size), a light pencil and a craft knife. The ruler can be any size as the size of the ruler determines the size of the panels. Just pick the long ruler you normally work with and see what you produce. The size of the card can change depending on the size of card you want to make but to start off just go with using A4 size and play around with other sizes later.
So here it is:
THE VERY LAZY FRONT PANEL CARD TUTORIAL :)
Take an A4 piece of card and fold in half. Short side to short side.
Rub out all your pencil marks and decorate.
Because you have used the width of your ruler you will find that all the panels (bar the middle back and front) are the same size making it much easier to just measure your ruler width and cut your strips all to the same width or smaller if you want to leave a boarder like I did and then all you have to do is work out the length of the panels your working on to get them ready to pop on the card.
I hope you find this an easier and quicker way to make your front panel cards, I have to say I love it.
Happy Crafting :)
