Simply Never-Ending :D

Hi Sassy girls, for today's tute I'm bringing you a never-ending recipe card! I printed some cupcake recipes I found on the Internet, used the amazingly adorable and yummalicious "Delicious" stamp, available from Funky Kits HERE, some equally yummy papers and here's how you can make it:

First get your supplies together! I used:

- 1 Sheet Bazzill Basics cardstock white
- My Mind's Eye paper pad "Stella and Rose: Gertie"
- Sugar Nellie Simply Sassy stamp "Delicious"
- Stamping Bella sentiment
- Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Fourteen
- BoBunny flowers
- Kars adhesive pearls
- A printer and some paper, I use FastPrint 200 gr.
- Recipes from

Right, all set? Here we go:

Cut four strips of 16 x 8 cm (6.3 x 3.1") cardstock and score at both ends as indicated at 4 cm (1.6").

Place two strips on the table as shown in this picture, put double-sided tape on the corners (only the corners, otherwise the card won't fold!).

Take one of the remaining strips and place it on the other two horizontally, make sure all sides and scorelines match up, then stick it down. Do the same with the other strip and the card should look like this:

You should now be able to do this with it (I decorated it first so you can really see the different folds)

Front (now take the flaps and fold open to left and right)

Then this is what you see. Turn the card 90 degrees to the left, take the two flaps and fold to left and right.

Then this becomes visible. Turn another 90 degrees and fold the flaps again and you see the back:


As there aren't an awful lot of possibilities to decorate a never-ending card, what with all the folding, I made a wrap for it. It's 8 cm (3.1") wide to cover the square panels on the front and a little over 16 cm (6.3") long on both sides. Decorate as desired, slip over the card and you're done!

Meet my "assistant" Kyra, isn't she cute? As soon as she hears the clicking of the camera she comes over to "pose"...who can resist such a beautiful face eh ;o)!

I hope you have fun with this tutorial, if you have any questions please leave me a comment and I'll do my best to help!

  6. I love the idea of a wrap - this is a lovely idea for the never ending card & great to see such clear instructions for the folding & sequence of turning. Love the attention to detail in that. Thanks for this.
