Lattice Card Tutorial

I have had many requests on how to make a lattice fold card. Here's a tutorial for you:

I first learned this technique with a cardboard cut-out template. Since then, I found this lattice fold guide at a stamping store. Most helpful!

(Click Here: to order your very own.)

Stamp the front of your card with your background:

Flip your card over, and line the spine of the card up to the edge of your guide:

Trace your lines:

Cut your lines:
Open your card:
Fold down your cuts, starting with at the bottom:

Fold your card. You may want to use your score tool and really work in the crease:

Trim the bottom fold, secure flaps with adhesive, and finish decorating your card:

That's it! Simple, looks great, and usually gets a "WOW" out of people.

If you do not have the luxury of a lattice fold guide, I've included this photo to help you make your own:

Peace & Blessings!
