Default TLC205 Designing With Paper Pleats

Good morning everyone, Lynn is off having fun at CHA, and asked me if I would be guest hostess for this week… So please, be easy on me…

After going through all of the New Technique Challenges, and not seeing this one, I decided to do “DESIGNING WITH PAPER PLEATS”. Somewhere on your card, you will need to add paper pleats. You can use any kind of paper, but it has to be a paper pleat.

I found that if you use your ScorPal and score your paper every 1/2” for an accordion pleat, or every 1” for a box pleat, it makes it a lot easier to fold your paper.

I had to experiment on the length. My advice, make it long, you can always cut it off.

It also works better with the thinner weight paper. You will just have to experiment with this, also.

And for those crafty seamstresses out there, you can use your sewing machine on this.

There you have it - pretty easy, right? Okay, so let’s get those creative juices flowing.


I have made 3 different samples:

Thanks So Much
