Tri-fold Triangle Album / Card

My Hostess Club members have been waiting since sometime in April / May for these instructions! After another round of migraines for me, Keiji became ill with pneumonia and Ken was having bronchial problems. Between the illnesses and Kevin's travels, I managed to lose a lot of time and energy. I do apologize for making my Stampin' gals wait. Thank you for your patience, my friends and for your encouragement. I am truly blessed to have such wonderful and supportive friends to share my passion with!

Here's a mini card that can be a cute gift. Add a couple of pictures and some hidden journaling underneath the tabs and you have a mini trifold album.

Here we go!

Flip cardstock to the other side so that you will score sideways on the back. Score from the lower outside corner in.

Flip it back around to the other side and fold your creases.

Left Panel: Add a triangular pp to the top triangle fold. Easiest way to do this is to take a double sided pp and trim it to 2.75" x 2.75" then cut it in half at an angle to make 2 triangles. Now you have 2 pieces of pp, one for each corner fold. Then cut out a 2.5" x 2.5" square from coordinating cardstock. Mat it with a coordinating 2.25" x 2.25" square. Over that, add another square, 2" x 2" and stamp your image or add a 2" x 2" photo. Add a 16" ribbon before putting the square down. 9" of loose ribbon to the left and use glue dots or sticky strip to anchor the ribbon down under the matted squares at about 10". The rest of the ribbon hangs off to the right. Be sure to adhere all this to the upper triangle fold. Do not glue the entire square to the panel.

Middle Panel: Cut out a 2.75" x 2.75" square and add a 2.5" x 2.5" stamped image to it or a photo.

Right Panel: Add the other triangular pp to the lower triangle fold. Cut out a rectangle, 2" x 1". Mat with a stamped image on 1.75" x .75" or a photo. Adhere the rectangle to the upper triangle fold. Do not adhere the entire rectangle to the panel.

Fold right triangle in first. Then fold left side down. Bring the ribbon up and the bottom ribbon around the backside.
