DAWN’S Z  FOLD FLAP CARD

Since this will probably be my last post from Florida I thought I’d show a few very Florida style photos…however these were all from the net and they were all from AUSTRALIA…however we do have huge gators those they appear to be crocs…and in the past few years FLORIDA HAS BEEN overrun with pythons that were turned loose in the everglades and they they have thrived… they are some so large that they have even fought and WON against fairly large gators… we don’t however have any kangaroo’s as far as I know. We do have gators and most golfers buy new balls rather go in the water traps to retrieve what might already be the gators. ok on to cards and things…

Now that's a gator

Both of these cards are created the same just with different sentiments..  You know by now how much I love cards with unusual folds… and while the Z fold is not that unique adding the flap on this one makes it different… Below are two of my samples one for my Hubby’s birthday ( which was last week) and the other a different version of a birthday card..

I will give you a heads up that I should have glued the panel  a little further in so that the flap worked better to hold the card shut..also slightly heavier card stock  on the flap would have been better…would have been also have helped.

This same fold can be done with almost any rectangle…so you can use any paper or your can use magazine pictures or calendar pages… here is the link for printable papers/patterns  ORIGAMI VIDEO FROM HAPPY PUPPY TRUFFLES this fold will basically work with all rectangles so you can use magazines, text designer paper, or even light weight calendar pages…just cut then rectangle shape… If you use designer printer paper you can even write your letter then fold it and mail it… I do suggest that you use a return mail label or an address label to be sure you hold it closed so that it goes thru that weird canceling machine with getting ripped .  ORIGAMI PRINTABLE ENVELOPE TEMPLATES
