Paper pleating tutorial by Amy Rohl

I love this pleated card tutorial found on Split Coast Stampers.

Paper Pleating Tutorial

by Amy Rohl


  • One 1 1/2" by 11" piece of cardstock for pleated layer

  • Scor-Pal™, or other scoring tool

  • Adhesive


    Step 1
    Score the cardstock strip first at the 1" mark, then at the 1 1/2" mark, then at 2 1/2", then at 3", etc. (alternating between adding 1/2" and 1" until you get to the end of the strip).
    Step 2
    Add adhesive in the middle of the strip for the pleat to fan at both top and bottom. Variation: Add a line of adhesive along one edge of your scored strip if you prefer the pleat to fan out at the bottom
    Step 3
    Accordion fold the strip. Starting with the left side, first make a mountain fold, then a valley fold, and so on, tucking each 1/2" section behind the 1" sections to form the pleats.
    Step 4
    Attach pleated layer to cardstock. Optional: Secure further with baker’s twine or ribbon.
    Step 5
    Finish your card. 

Card uses a Flopsey stamp set from 'My Favorite Things'.
