We’re Swinging with a Pop Out Swing Fun Fold Card

Good Morning Magnolia Swing Fold

I’m a huge fan of “Fancy Fold” cards and this one is gorgeous!! I host a “Zoom With Friends” class each week and we were lucky enough to have one of our attendees share the steps to make this card!!

I’m not going to try to cover all the steps we had to do but, if you’re interested, I will host a virtual class via Zoom to teach you. All you have to do is let me know by sending an email to marilyn.wagner@shaw.ca.

For this sample, I let the Designer Series Paper (DSP) do most of the work. I used the colours in the DSP to decide what cardstock colours to use. The Stitched Rectangle Dies and the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine added some detail.

Now let’s have a look at the same design with different Designer Series Paper! Which one is your favourite?

Cute little gift bag full of cards!

Let’s see how to make this cute little gift bag!

I’m sure you have some sheets of DSP (Designer Series Paper) that will make such cute gift bags! To start with, you will need a 12″ x 12″ sheet of DSP that has designs you like on both sides! And, we all know that Stampin’ Up! DSP is designed to go well with all the sheets in the package. For this project, Forever Greenery DSP (#152492) was my choice and the DSP on the cards also came from that package as well.

Purse Gifts Bag full of cards

Using the graphic as a guide, cut the 12×12 DSP at 9″ x 12″ 

  • With the side you want showing on the outside facing downward, put DSP on Simply Scored Scoring Tool (or Paper Trimmer).  
  • Have the longest side along the top – score at 1″, 5-1/4″, 6-3/4″ and 11″
  • Turn the paper so the shorter side is along the top of your scoring tool – score at 1-1/2″ and 7-1/2″ 
  • Looking at your paper with the longest side facing you, there are 2 small squares in the centre of the page on each of the long sides. Cut on both sides of the squares up to the next score line so you have 2 little flaps – fold them inwards 
  • Fold along all score lines, folding inwards, except the two 1″ score lines on the very ends. Fold those two in the other direction. Look at the picture of the “purse” so you see that your opposite colours are showing. This gives a nice little edge in different colours all the way around. 
  • Apply strong sticky strips to the outside edge of the small centre flaps and the large side flaps 
  • Starting with one end, fold into the shape of your box and then stick the sides together 
  • To make the handles, take the paper that you cut off and sized to 1/2″ x 12″.
  • Using a corner punch, shape the ends of each one and attach to the purse.
