Accordion Fun Fold

Stampin Up Dainty Flowers

This is another fun fold card I learned how to make in the class I took last month.  It is called a Fun Fold Accoridan card designed by another Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, Sharon Armstrong.  This is what the card looks like opened up:

Stampin Up Dainty Delight


Isn’t that fun?!

Below is a list of card stock and Designer Series Paper with the measurements you will need to make this card:

  •  An A2 card base folded in portrait  4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ ( I used Blushing Bride)
  • Same Colored Cardstock as your base (I used Blushing Bride):
    a. 1″ x 11″ 
    b. 1 ½” x 3” 
    c. 4 1/4″ x 11” 
  • Designer Series Paper (DSP) (I used Dainty Flowers):  
  • a. 4″ x 5 1/4″ 
  • b. 2 1/4″ X 4″ 
  • c. 2 1/4″ X 4″ 
  • d. 1 1/4″ X 4″ 
  • e. 1 1/4″ X 4″ 
  • f.  3″ x 4″
  • g. an extra piece of DSP to use for the sentiment on the belly bandFirst, adhere the piece 4” x 5 ¼” DSP to the front of your card base.Then take the colored cardstock that measures 4 1/4″ x 11″ and score at 3″, 5 1/2″, 8″, and 9 1/2″. Fold back and forth to create an accordion fold. Use a Bone Folder to give good creases.  Adhere the 3″ x 4″ piece of DSP to the last panel. Then, adhere all other DSP pieces to the 4 ¼” x 11” accordion card with adhesive. 

    Adhere your accordion piece to the center of the front of the card. I used Tear & Tape for this because it holds well.  You can also use Multipurpose glue.

    Take the 1” x 11” cardstock and wrap it around the entire card creating a belly band with the seam in the front and tape it together. I used Tear & Tape for this too.

    Punch out a section of your DSP for the sentiment.  I used the Everyday Label Punch. Stamp sentiment on it from the Dainty Delight stamp set and adhere it to the belly band. 

    That is it.  It looks a lot more complicated than it really is.  If you have any questions feel free to contact me.
