here. The main difference between the Etsy method and mine, is that they used modge podge to make their cards, which I found messy and not as effective at keeping the edges adhered.
To make this version you will need:
8 1/2 x 11" cardstock
A fabric scrap a little larger than 8 1/2 x 11"
Fusible Web, I used this one, but any will do
Iron, cutting tools and cutting mat
1st Cut the fusible web slightly smaller than 8 1/2 x 11"
The direction you fold paper is actually very important as to how smooth the fold will be. That is because paper has a grain line, much like the warp and weft in a fabric weave. If you fold parallel to the grain, you will get a nice smooth fold with little to no resistance. If you fold against the grain, you will get resistance, and the paper may actually break or tear on the fold. You can test which is the right way to fold by gently bending the sheet of paper in both directions. The wrong direction will feel more resistant to your fold.
Fold the piece in half short sides together, parallel to the grain.
You could also print on the cardstock before adhering fabric, as I have done on these little thank you cards. And you could trim the card edges with a decorative blade to get some nice effects.
Happy Sewing ♥
