NEW! Tower Block Cards

Hi everyone, here’s something new for you to try.

I’m calling this a Tower Block card, I saw an image on Pinterest by thefoldfactory.com, It’s a brochure, but the style caught my eye and I wanted to try and turn it into a card fold.

I’ve made 3 sizes and they all fold flat.

The 6′ x 8′ size above is my favourite, when open its a 6′ x 6′ size, but once flat it will fit into a 6′ x 8′ envelope.

This one is the bigger version and is 6′ x 8′ when open and folds down to 8′ x 8′

If you want something smaller that will fit into a more standard size envelope, then you may prefer this one, which folds down to a 6′ x 6′ size and when open is 5′ x 6′. I will be doing this version on my channel soon.

There are so many ways to decorate this card, some ideas mentioned when I made this during one of my lives was a memory card covered in photos, Minecraft or Tetris themed for any gamers

You can also add more sides, I did try 3 sides but that wouldn’t fold flat, so any equal sides will work and already someone has shared a 6 sided version on our Mixed Up Crafters Facebook page here.
