a Tri-fold Matchbook Folder
Today we are making a trifold matchbook folder as we move forward in our junk journaling journey. A printable template has been made for you to print out and follow along. I have made quite a few of these for bookmaking projects during the past year. These can be used as stand alone, a cute card, or even place a gift card inside it. Many possibilities are available! I suggest strong cardstock for this project to prevent tearing.

You definitely will need a scoring board for this project. And not to worry, all of the measurements will be on Tri-Fold Matchbook Folder Template (seen in the above image). Using your scoring tool and with paper set horizontally, we will now score at the necessary specific points. First score at the 1″ line, then 4.5,” and 8″ marks. Now we will turn the paper to the long position (8.5″x11″ sheet) and score at 1/8,” 2 5/8,” 2 7/8,” 5 5/8,” 5 7/8.” and lastly the 8 3/8″ mark.
Now we will make cuts to the 4.5″ point, as you can follow in the tutorial. Fold over flaps to 4.5″ score mark and burnish corners firmly with bone folder to create flaps. On the other side fold over at the 1″ score mark and burnish as well. To finish you can sew or tape the edges on the ends as i did for plenty of tucking space. You can use scrapbook paper, or paint or collage your paper first if you wish. Try to fold as straight as you possibly can. Now you can be proud of your latest artistic creation that I’m sure you will love! This is the folder when it is closed below.
