Smaller diamond fold
I'm still playing with the diamond fold. This time, I started with a 3" X 10" piece of paper. The instructions worked fine until got to the part where I create the vertical folds. I just had to fold them so that the folds were where they should be. I'll have to measure the next one.Edit: Cut 3" X 9".
I cut a base card (5.5" X 8.5") and a face card (4.25" X 5.5") from the same green cardstock. I cut the face card in half (2.75" X 4.25") and glued each piece to the end flaps, so the meet in the middle when they diamond folded paper is folded flat.
Next, I glued the end flaps (with face card) to the base card, one at a time.
I then trimmed the edges, so that the face card and base cards were lined up. I stamped Happy Birthday onto a small square of the paper I used for the diamond fold. I also cut a square of the darker textured cardstock to frame the sentiment and glued them in place. I added some Class A'Peels stickers to cover the gaps in face card and as decorative elements.
