Exploding card tutorial.

Exploding Card Tutorial.

I don't have a finished project YET, but I wanted to share this great card fold with you all.

All you need for this card is one sheet of 12x12. I know no cutting great stuff.

Firstly you will have to score 7.6cm (3in) all the way around. 
I added two very slightly different pictures of this as it wasn't very clear.

Then you have to find the centre and bring each corner into it. Make sure they all match up as it will affect the other folds.

Now you have to open the parer up.
 At each corner you will have a square/diamond and a triangle either side.
You need to Mountain fold the edges of the square/diamond, and valley fold the edges of the triangles.
 I really hope this makes sense the picture below may explain better.

This is what it will look like after you have folded one corner,

This is what it will look like with all four corners folded in.

Then you take the corners of the new small squares and fold them back.

This is a really easy fold, I really hope this tutorial helps.
It is the first time I have done this fold, hence no finished card yet.

 Enjoy and have fun.


  1. I have done this card before and it is pretty easy once you do it but looks so difficult and it is really pretty when decorated!!
