Techniques on Tuesday: Folded Chevron

Today’s technique is a little different in that there is no stamping. When I was surfing online looking for ways to use Designer Series Paper I discovered this technique thanks to Deb Valder for sharing this chevron folded pattern.

Supplies that you will need: Paper Trimmer and Designer Series Paper. And card stock, stamps, ink and embellishment to finish your card.

Step by Step Instructions

  • Note: I have converted this to metric sizing.
  • Cut 1 card panel to 14cm x 9.5cm panel for the base of your chevron pattern.
  • If you wish to add some texture to the card panel do this before starting your chevron pattern.
  • Cut 5 pieces of Designer Series Paper at 6.5cm x 2.5cm.
  • Three pieces you will fold from the top right-hand corner over to the left side on both ends.
  • Two pieces you will fold from the left-hand corner over to the ride side on both ends.
  • You will want to burnish all folds with a bone folder.
  • Now flip all pieces over and add a small amount of adhesive to the middle of each one. (this will allow you to just tack them into place and move around later if needed)
  • Start with one of the three pieces (folded right to left) line up the side and corner to your card panel.
  • Now alternate between the two different folded pieces to create your chevron pattern.
  • When you have them all down you might need to adjust them a little if they are not meeting properly or do not quite meet at the ends.
  • Once you are happy with the placement adhere in place.
  • Decorate and embellish as you wish to finish your card.

Variations for this technique

  • Use the reverse side of the designer series paper to get a different finish.
  • Landscape or portrait your finished card.
