#167 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with B for Book Binding Fold

The Butterflies are back with a brand new Alphabet
and card shapes to try out. 
Whilst I do have lots of new card shapes for you to try I don't have one to use for each letter of the Alphabet so this time round we are going Random and some letters will be used more than once and in any order!

 The next letter out of the Tea cup is 
the letter
Come on in.
Lets Spin the Butterfly Wheel.

Each challenge will be a letter of the Alphabet with a new  choice of 4 Colours , 1 Theme and a specified Card shape all beginning with the chosen letter.

As before I will be showing a tutorial for each of the card shapes.
 A link to the tutorial page is shown above under the banner heading. Just click on the Card Shapes tab and you will be taken to a drop down list of all the past and present card tutorials.

 You must of course use a butterfly on your entry but there are now two categories for you to choose from.

1.    Make any  card using at least 2 of the colours on the wheel +butterfly.  

     2.    Make a card using the Card Shape +any 2 of the colours + the theme +butterfly.  

There will be a prize for each category. 

 Please state in your post which part of the wheel you are using to play with.

There will be a special prize draw for using all of the wheel.

So lets get started.

The wheel is

Book Binding Fold.

These are the four colours to choose from. 

The theme is show Braid (real or Faux).

Please state the elements of Your Choice.

Here is my inspiration for you.

This fun fold is even easier as it requires no cutting just two folds of your base card. 
Easy Peasy! 

This card uses acetate for the front cover. 

With an exploding page inside that requires 3 more easy folds.

This book binding fold looks like something even I can manage, so will try it out this time around. I am a little confused about the requirements however, for using the Book Binding fold. It says you need to use at least 2 colors, book binding fold, and Thank You, along with your butterfly. Is this correct, or do you mean to say we need to use the braid element?
Thanks for clarifying.

I should have been able to manage that fold but it's another flat card from me. That acetate cover is very clever and also the pop up is a fun touch. I think I could manage that too! x

Yay! I just made my book binding fold and I enjoyed it very much! No trouble at all this time - thank you for the wonderful tutorial! I just linked up my card and I apologize that my banana looks more like buff, but the name of the cardstock is Stampin' Up Barely Banana. It's a very dull day today so it was difficult to get a good photo. My other colour is Bougainvillea but I did not do the braid. Enjoy your weekend and thanks for inspiring!
