Fun Fold Cards

Season of Christmas Fun Fold

I stumbled across this Explosion Card Fun Fold and I had to make one for my Fun Fold class!! It looks daunting at first glance-but I promise it’s super easy to make!


Card Base: 5 ½” x 8 ½”-Scored at 2 1/8” and folded to meet in the middle.

DSP: 4” x 8”- Scored at 2”, 4”, 6” & diagonally from every corner to opposite corner’s 4” score line. (see diagram)

Basic White: 2 ½” square & 2 ½” x 4” piece

Color Layer: 2 ¾” square & 2 ¾” x 4 ¼” piece

Belly Band: 3”x 9 ½”

Other Supplies: Ribbons, embellishments, adhesive, bone folder, and Paper Trimmer with scoring tool. 

Huge thank you to Julie Davidson for this template!!

  1. Fold the card base in to meet in the middle and crease with your bone folder.
  2. 4” x 8”- Scored at 2”, 4”, 6” & diagonally from every corner to opposite corner’s 4” score line. Crease the vertical lines first and carefully crease the diagonal ones inward.
  3. Adhere your Color square and Basic White square together and then place in the center diamond above.  This will hold the inside sentiment.
  4. Stamp and decorate your Basic White 2 ½” x 4” piece and adhere to the 2 ¾” x 4 ¼” piece. 
  5. Use your DSP Belly Band 3”x 9 ½” and bend it securely (not to tight) around the closed card base.  Then use Tear & Tape to join together.
  6. Adhere your decorated piece from step 4 to cover the join line on the belly band.
  7. Fold your inside diagonal piece into a square-rotate to make a diamond before adhering it to one side of the card base. (use Tear & Tape).  Then slowly press the opposite side onto the other side of the diamond.
  8. Open your card to see the explosion!!!
