Fun fold Friday Quiet Meadow

 Fun fold Friday is here again and today its a very simple fold! I have also gone back to my old faithful colour pallette bright and bold. I wanted to show that the Quite Meadow stamp set is a versatile one. I have thoroughly enjoyed creating with it this week.

So lets talk about the fun fold first. Called the book binder fold it's  super simple and quick to make. Take a piece of cardstock measuring 29.7cm x 10.5cm and score at 12.35cm and 14.85cm. That's all the scoring you need do! 

Next take a piece of cardstock measuring 14cm x 9.5cm  score this piece at 2.5cm on the long side. This will make the "page" for the inside of your book. I've only done one but you could do 2 or even 3.

I then adhered the page inside my book along the 2.4.5cm panel ensuring that the folds were lined up to ensure that it opens well.

Mext the fun began as I created my own pretty paper to decorate with. I chose inks in bright pink called melon mambo,  a turquoise blue called costal cabana, a vibrant green called granny apple green and lastly a shade of yellow called daffodil delight.

I  also created some faux leather from the coordinating bright pink cardstock.  To do this I spritzed the cardstock back and front with water that I mixed a little glycerin with. I then screwed it up into a little ball! Once I was happy with the crinkles I smoothed it and left it to dry. I  you're short of time you could spritz with isopropyl alcohol as this evaporates quicker than water.

So now to decorate my project. I cut a stip of the faux leather to fit the front 2.5cm panel. A piece of the stamped cardstock for the rest. Then 2 triangles from faux leather to mimic the corner savers of an old book.

I created a closure for my book using a strip of card that I attatched behind the decoration on the back cover of my book.  I also used very thin magnets to act as closures.

I then punched holes thought the spine of the book and used a little ribbon to tread through.

I love this bright  vibrant project and the fun fold is so easy to make and allows you so much scope to decorate.

This fold would be great for a card for a group to sign as there is a lot of surfaces...

What ever the reason I think a card like this would be well recieved 😊

Well that's  it from me for this week. I do hope I've  inspired you in some way shape or form and that you'll  get crafting.

Have a good weekend, stay safe and
