Corner Tuck Fold Card

I have a fun fold card to share with you that features a cute little triangle corner that is actually a pocket to tuck the card front into. There are two versions of this pattern – one is super quick and easy using only minimal supplies and the second is a stepped-up version. There are directions to download and a tutorial video to watch from my Papercrafting Playdate Facebook Live today.

Corner Tuck Fold Card – Quick & Easy

  • 4.25” x 11” Cardstock base
  • 2” x 6” Coordinating patterned paper
  • 3” x 4” Basic White (cut 2)

 Directions

  1. Measure at 3.25” along the 11” side of the card base and cut. This will give you a piece measuring 3.25” x 4.25” and a card base measuring 4.25” x 7.75”.  The 3.25” x 4.25” piece will be used to matte the focal point, and the rest is used for the card base.
  2. Score the card base at 5.5”. Fold on the score line and press with a bone folder. The small flap will be part of the card front.
  3. Cut the patterned paper piece at 4” along the long edge.  This will give you a 2” x 4” piece and a 2” square. Cut the 2” square in half diagonally to make 2 triangles.
  4. Attach the 2” x 4” piece to the flap on the card front.
  5. Attach the 3.25” x 4.25” card stock piece onto the card front flap, centering this piece over the card.  Use adhesive to attach, but only on the portion that will be attach to the card flap.
  6. Stamp one of the 3” x 4” pieces of Basic White cardstock as desired. Mount this piece onto the 3.25” x 4.25” piece of coordinating cardstock.
  7. Mount the 3” x 4” Basic White piece on the inside of the card directly underneath the focal point so that it cannot be seen when the card is closed. Stamp the inside greeting on this piece.
  8. Attach the triangle over one of the corners on the edge where the card opens, using adhesive (glue dots work well) on the 3 corners of the triangle. The triangle will overlap a corner of the inside 3” x 4” piece.  Attach the second triangle on the inside of the card to balance the corner pocket.

Now for the stepped-up version of this card which really just adds some more elements and possibilities to the mix.

Corner Tuck Fold Card – Stepped Up Version

The Stepped-Up Version of this fun fold is put together the exact same way. I shifted the dimensions of the flap on the card front so that there is room to put a gift card inside using the second triangle. This adjustment also changes the size of the patterned paper so note the directions.

 Corner Tuck Fold – Stepped-Up Version

  • 4.25” x 8” Cardstock base
  • 4” x 2.25” Coordinating patterned paper
  • 3.25” x 4.25” Coordinating cardstock
  • 3” x 4” Basic White (cut 2)
  • 2.25” cardstock or DSP square, cut in half diagonally

Hope this tutorial helps you “tuck” into some card-making and gift-card giving very soon!
