For today's post, I created an altered joy fold card featuring a decorated mob of emus ready for some Christmas frivolity. Scroll to the end to see a few pictures of how I created the fold.
YOUR TURN: Create a card or paper craft project using the letter "E" as your prompt.

Stamp and colour the image on a piece of sturdy card stock, leaving extra space at the right edge.
Fussy cut around the image, leaving a wide tab on the right side. Score vertically, not too far from the image.
Cut a piece of patterned paper to fit the inside of your card blank. Mine measures 51/4" x 51/4" to fit inside a 51/2" square card. To hide the long tab, I've cut a slit in the patterned paper and pushed the tab through. The fold lines up with the right hand edge of the front of my card, which I trimmed slightly to allow the fold over.
Now the emus hold the card closed as well as decorating both the inside and outside of my card.
