Easter Infinity Fold Card

New Easter Infinity Card RedoneThe Easter Infinity fold card is one of my favorites. You can just keep opening it forever. And the silver is so classy looking. But I updated it because I had some issues. See the 2020 version here.

Cordelia sat and played with this card for 20 minutes.  Everyone will love this amazing card.  The finished size is 6X6 so it fits in an envelope that size for mailing.

 

You will need
  • Heavy cardstock for the base
  • other scraps of cardstock
  • Liquid glue
  • Tape glue (optional)

Paper Selection
The base card paper needs to be fairly heavy.  Make it at least 100 lb weight.  It needs to hold up to being folded a lot.  I would go with plain paper because you really don’t see a lot of it.  The squares can be patterned as you can see.  I cut all the little pieces with silver metallic paper. 
 
You can use any paper you like even patterned. Try to keep to just one patterned paper or they get confused.  And the eggs are very small so you would need a small pattern.

 

Cutting

The eggs are small and are difficult to cut.  It took me several tries to get all of them.  Be careful when taking them off the mat they tear easily.  I saved some of the little silver cutouts to use on other projects.

When cutting the base card (lt. blue)for this Easter Infinity Fold Card, you can cut them from one sheet of cardstock.  Just move the base piece on mat 2 to mat 1 and turn it.  If you need help doing this watch my video

Assembling the Easter Infinity Fold Card
Re crease all the folds on the 3X6 rectangles then glue them together like this picture.  Do not over glue or the card won’t work.
Infinity Card Gluing Instructions

Once the glue has dried, play with the card a little to make it easy to work.  Next you want to put all the embellishment pieces together.  It is pretty clear what goes on each size piece. 

When you have all the squares assembled, Glue the panels to the card with a small dab of glue so that you can change the position if it isn’t right.   As you attach all the squares to the base card pay special attention to the different folds.  Make sure you put the right sized square in each spot,  notice that the long skinny sections are divided in some views and that is where the eggs go. 

Play with the Easter Infinity Fold card several times to make sure it is right The two  bunny and carrot squares go on specific squares. Fold your card so that it looks like a plus sign (the third picture above). Glue the bunny and carrot squares to those blocks. This helps because only half of those panels can be seen in one view( middle picture) and these blocks works because they have two separate objects.

When you are sure the card is rights, glue each piece securely to the card and let it dry.

 

Your Easter Infinity Fold Card is done.  Enjoy
