A Closer Look At Tri-Fold Mail
Here's something that is "hot" on Instagram. These are Tri-Fold letters made out of card stock. Most of the ones I have seen are rather large, but I found IG" flatteryeverywhere" post a more size-friendly tri-fold. It utilizes a 12X12 inch scrap book cardstock cut in half, then folded into 3 equal sections. Now, my example below is quite, well, off. The cuttings are not even and looks rather bad if you are a perfectionist...and I am plainly not a perfectionist...but it still bothers me. But, here it is, in all of it's imperfections.
This is what you see when you pull back the front cover.a crooked pocket (oh well.) I sure you can do better! I will place my letter in this pocket.
Here the trifold is fully opened. You could place a tea bag, or tags (pictured in the right pocket) or any other ephemera you can find. Nice for sweet little surprises. The pockets I made were too small for journal cards, but you could maybe put some ATC sized cards with your own quotes...I love affirming words, don't you?
When it is folded up, it is an A5 size, so will fit nicely in an A5 size envelope. I have plenty of those...or I could even make one out of coordinating scrapbooking paper. Hmmm...I think I will just do that!
I hope you will try this project, and send me a picture of it. I made another version of this, that I will try to post later this week or early next week. Stay tuned for more SnailMail FUN!
