A simple concertina card!

A little while ago I had an order for two small concertina cards-which I entered into a challnge over on Crafty Creations. I was later amazed by winning my second ever lot of challenge blog candy-thank you Jenny!

Here is the card!

Claire asked for details for dimensions of how to make it and to be honest it couldn't be more simple!
Take a piece of A4 card and score on the centre line making a basic A5 card.

Flip the card over on your scoreboard and score along the card as if you were making a fold for an A6 card (at around 73-74mm) this will divide the card into quarters .

Rotate the card and repeat another fold on the other side and using a bone folder fold back the creases on the score lines to create a tall concertina card.

Take the tall concertina card and simple cut it into two by cutting across at 104-105mm

This creates two little basic concertina cards all ready for working on!

As these can be quite bulky I tend to store and pass these on partly unfolded in a basic size A6 envelope.

I do hope my waffle makes a little sense!
