Side-by-side display card fold

(Originally posted HERE on Sept.  19, 2010)
SIDE by SIDE display card fold

The finished card is here.  It is 4.25" square, in position to display the front and inside side-by-side.  Please read further to find out more details.

Here is a picture of the foldable base with scor-tape tabs on each end for attaching the front and inside panels to, and I decorated the back sides with designer papers.  This photo is BEFORE I attached the panels to the base.

It also can be standing up like a square box.  However if you do this, you will want to add a little tab to the "inside" (right) panel with velcro on it, and attach the other side of the velcro to the backside of the front panel, so that it will stay together in a square shape.  You won't need the velcro if standing in a "V" shape shown previously.

************************************************************************
When it is folded up, the front panel is still the front panel, and the inside is actually on the very back facing outside.  This is how it looks folded up, from the top.  My card here is about 1/4" thick.

TIP: you will want to get yourself a protective clear envelope for your card before putting it into a paper envelope or box envelope.  Since the front and inside are facing outward, you want to protect the delicate embellishments during transit to the recipient.
You can either use a 4.75" plain flat envelope which will expand when you slide the folded card in.  Or you can create yourself a custom size "box style" envelope for even better protection.
