Learn an easy paper folding technique to make fun explosion card inserts in this tutorial.
Don’t be fooled by the calm exterior. The inside of this card has a lot going on! (The lovely fall floral paper and deer image are from the most recent Simon Says Stamp monthly kit.)
I don’t remember when I learned this paper folding technique to make explosion cards. I just know that once I learned it, I never forgot it. It’s quite simple after you’ve done it a few times. And it can be sized up or down depending on what card size you are making.
For the A2 size card (closed measurements of 4 1/4″ by 5 1/2″), you can use an 8 3/8″ or 8 1/4″ square piece of paper.
Make sure it’s paper, not cardstock. If you can find a glossy paper, that’s fun to work with too.
I usually prefer to decorate my paper before folding as the folds often prevent stamps from leaving a clean image.
