Tutorial: Multi-fold cards by Holly!

Hello!  It's Holly from Ribbon's and Glue sharing a tutorial's today on how to make two different Multi-Fold Cards.   These cards are small and simple to make.  What I like about them most though is that you can use your scraps to decorate them.

Whenever I make multi-fold cards I'm always repeating to myself "Measure Twice, Score Once".  I still make errors though,  I guess this is why I end up with many scraps of paper to use on them.

How to make a Triangular Tri-Fold Card
Supplies needed:
Scoring Board
1 piece of  3 1/2" x 10 1/2" cardstock
 Patterned paper
Image to fit on front of card, approx 3"-4"

Take your 3 1/2" x 10 1/2"  strip of cardstock and score at 3 1/2" and 7".
 Rotate paper and score diagonally on the end square corner to corner. Make sure both ends are going in the same diagonal.
Fold left side into the middle then fold triangle flap up. Do the same fold on the other side except fold the triangle down. 
 There you go, a simple little triangle tri-fold card that can be decorated in a million ways

Wrap a ribbon around your card and tie it with a bow to keep it closed. When adding your image to the front of the card remember to only adhere it to one side of the triangle flap. Otherwise, you won't be able to open the card. 

How to make Accordion Fold Card
Supplies needed:
Scoring Board
1 piece of  4 1/2 " x 11" cardstock
Patterned paper
Various embellishments

 Score your 4 1/2" x 11" inch paper at 1 1/2", 3", 5 1/2" and 8".
Starting on left side, mountain and valley fold on the score lines
