Simple Diaper Fold

1st I want to wish the DT girls that are leaving us the very best & am so sorry to see them go. Also want to give the 7 new girls who were chosen to represent TPS a warm welcome & know you’re going to really enjoy being here. It’s a wonderful place to be a part of.
I know you’re expecting a baby card but The Paper Shelter wants us to make a card with many folds & right away I thought of the wonderful Diaper Fold card a sweet lady Irene shared with me quite awhile back … If you join the challenge of a card with many folds this week you have the chance to win a $30 gift to spend at The Paper Shelter if you use one of their wonderful images. If you use another image you can still win but you gift would be 3 digis of your choice from them. Still a great prize cuz they have a lot of really cute stuff …
The only image I had with me to color was a cute little Fair Day digi from TPS… This is the simplest card fold to make … I didn’t even remember to take my embellishments so am trying to throw a little extras on this evening to spruce it up a little. With these darling little images it doesn’t take much.
I even got a little shot of one of my daughter Bridgette’s many quilts. She can make a quilt faster than I can make a card …
All you do is fold any size square in half (mine is 9 x 9) then you fold the edges in
P1050815 P1050816
& fold the top down & squeeze the sides just a bit & it makes an instant pouch.
P1050817 P1050819
No glue needed it just folds & stays together wonderfully …
Then you can decorate it or add a few little gift items or candy treats or a gift card poked in there would be so nice for anyone to receive.
Colored with Copics 
Skin - E000, E01, E93
Hair - E50, E53, E35
Blues - B45, B41, B0000
Balloon - YR000- YR00, YR01

Thank you for visiting my blog today. Besides my family & friends, it’s what makes me happy & keeps me broke …
Hugs, Janie
