Fun Birthday Card

I saw this card fold on fellow Demo Patty Bennett's blog and just had to try it! It is really pretty simple. It's just a half sheet of cardstock scored twice, then punched with a 2-inch circle punch.

  1. Cut an 8 ½” x 11” sheet of cardstock in half at 4 ½” (portrait position, or lengthwise). You will then have a 4 ¼” x 11” piece for your card.
  2. With the 11” side of the cardstock placed horizontally across your paper trimmer, score at 4 ¼” then at 8 ½.”
  3. Punch a 2” Circle punch as shown in the diagram.
  4. Fold into a trifold card and decorate as you like.
  5. If you’d like to use designer series paper, cut 4” x 4” and 2 ¼” x 4.” Don’t forget to place a circle back in the space. I used a 1 ¾” circle punch for that part so that it would open and close smoothly.
