Hello, G45ers!

 Thanks for joining us today. We have Brand Ambassador Einat Kessler here with a quick 60-Second Video Tutorial for her St Nicholas Double Fold Christmas Card. This card features our Washi Tape as a binding and is super quick to make. If you still have to get your Christmas cards out this year, you could whip up a batch of these in no time to share that vintage Graphic 45 Christmas spirit. Check out the YouTube video below to see how to get started.

By Einat Kessler


Hi dear crafty friends, Einat Kessler here with a really fast and easy project! Today I’ll show you how to create a double fold card in only 60 seconds!


Furthermore… this card doesn’t require any measuring, cutting or folding! Are you ready?


To create this card I used only two things.


Graphic 45 Supplies:

Staples - Washi Tape Set

The first step is to decide which side of the card you want to face up and which down, that’s because they’re double sided!


Once you decide that you align the cards side by side and attach them to each other with a piece of washi tape! Then all you need is to fold the card and add a few embellishments to the front!

Tip #1: If you don’t want to fold it like I did, then simply change the direction of the fold. You can create an accordion fold for example.


Tip #2: You can also add more cards and create a mini album or an insert.

Here’s the video tutorial:

I hope you’ll give it a try because it’s not only pretty, it’s super easy and fast. If you don’t put too many bulky embellishments it will fit perfectly in an envelope too. So get busy creating!”

I’ve been crafting for over 10 years and I’ve love the different Graphic 45 series whether from Babies to Brides, thenAsian women, Off to the Races, Etc. My holiday cards this year incorporate so many of the G aphid 45 element. Great designs for cutting up as cars or for “fussy cutting.”
