DIY Whiz Kids Z Fold Card Tutorial

We have seen so many cards made on social media using this fab Z fold so we had to try it ourselves…and we loved it! Read on to find out how to make your  own.

What you Need

Whiz kids 6x6 Paper Pack, Decoupage Pad, Sentiment Toppers, Frames, Stamps, Stickers Sheet, Bunting

Dovecraft 6x6 Card Blank and White A4 Card Stock

Gel Pens

How to Make

1.  Using the Whiz Kids Decoupage pad, make the Football decoupage topper following the numbered steps.

TIP: Do not stick the last layer of the feet down as these will sit on the frame.

2.  Cut a piece of Whiz Kids paper down to 8.5cm x 11cm, round the corners and mat and layer on to an 8cm x 10.5 cm piece of coordinating Whiz Kids paper. Adhere the decoupage topper to this at a jaunty angle. Adhere the frame to the decoupage topper, adding the last pair of legs to the top of the Whiz Kids frame with 3D foam pads.

3.  Vertically score the front of your Dovecraft 6x6 card blank in the centre and fold it.

4.  Pick 2 different patterned designs within the Whiz kids 6x6 paper pack and cut them both down to fit the two folded panels on the inside of your card blank.

5.  Next pick a coordinating sheet and stamp your chosen designs from the Whiz Kids collection onto it.

6.  Colour your designs in with gel pens and adhere it with Dovecraft Perma Fix tape to the inside of your card, on the right hand side.

7.  Cut a 4cm wide strip from another Dovecraft 6x6 card blank. Open it out horizontally and score and fold a vertical line, 7.5cm in from the right hand side.

8.  Next cut coordinating pieces of Whiz Kids paper to fit the panels.

9.  Adhere this band along the centre of the card, ensuring to only glue it to the first panel on the left hand side and on the edge of the right hand side. Also make sure that the longest panel is on the left hand side.

10.  Adhere your decoupage topper with Dovecraft Perma Fix tape at an angel on the first panel on the left hand side. Adhere the ‘Goal’ sentiment from the decoupage pad to the bottom left hand side of the frame with 3D foam pads and stick a football to the bottom left hand corner of the card from the Whiz Kids Sticker sheets.

11.  Finish by sticking the Whiz Kids ‘Birthday Boy’ sentiment on the Z fold and adding a line of bunting above the decoupage image with 3D foam pads.

This playful Z fold card design will be perfect for little boys who can’t get enough of football!

Alternatively, you could use the pretty pink papers within the Whiz Kids collection to create a magical card for the little princess in your life!

This Z fold card design is really on-trend at the moment and is super simple to create. What papercraft collection with you use for your own make? We’d love to see so remember to upload them to the project gallery and to #trimcraft on social media.
