Technique, Double-Z-Fold - Cas-ual friday's

This is actually a Christmas card but the Z-Fold can be applied to any design. It's really fun when you can suspend something on the inside. Here are the dimensions:

Base: 4 1/4" X 11'
Score at 5 1/5"
From one of the ends score at 2 3/4"
The fold at 2 3/4" is a mountain fold (fold back)
The 5 1/2" fold is a valley (fold towards you)

1 1/2" X11"
From one of the ends score at 2 3/4"
The 5 1/2" fold is a mountain fold (fold back)
The fold at 2 3/4" is a valley (fold towards you)

Add any layers of designer paper and/or matting you'd like. TIP - it gets real heavy real fast if done like mine. I'd use 80# base next time instead of 110# if matting and adding designer paper.

Glue only 2 3/4" of thin strip on the 5 1/2" end and adhere. On the opposite end glue the 2 3/" piece to the back panel.
