Pleated Fold tutorial

Hello Friends!

Sorry about the little video tease  on Friday morning!  I was in Atlanta for our team retreat and convention this past Thursday – Saturday and  was showing my team how to make a video and upload to a blog……and my phone ran out of space for the rest of the video.

Here it is in full!  Have fun making projects with this new technique!

Send me pictures of your pleated fold card this week….either via email or text.



Technique Tips:

  • DSP measures 3″ x 11″
  • Score at 5″ and 6″ across the 3″ side
  • Mark with Simply Scored the 1 1/2″ (middle)  on both ends
  • Cut from 1 1/2″ to the 5″ score line and again from the other side to the 6″ score line
  • Finish scoring across the 3″ side at 1 1/2″, 2″, 3″, 3 1/2″, 4 1/2″, (5″ and 6″ you scored previously), 6 1/2″, 7 1/2″, 8″, 9″, and 9 1/2″
  • Fold pleats
  • Tear & Tape back side to hold in place
  • Finish Card
