Directions for lattice fold (you can do this on any size card, you just need and even number of flaps to fold over)

1. Score and fold card in half.

2. Mark a guide line 1″ parallel to the fold on the card.

3. Make marks every 1/4″ along the fold with a pencil.

4. Use a 45 triangle to draw a line from the mark on the fold to the guide line you drew.

5. Cut along the slits to the line you drew. Cut away the triangle at the top and bottom.

6. Open the card and fold the next to the bottom flap down. Repeat with ever other flap. As long as you have an even number of flaps it should work out but if you cut an odd number you can trim off the top:)

7. Fold the card back and decorate as desired!

The lattice step will take less than 10 minutes. The total card will take around 30 minutes to stamp, color and assemble. Try the lattice fold technique on any card you want to add a decorative touch to. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
