Keyword: F4A171
Do Some Folding...


Paper folding, that is!

There are many clever origami designs out there.
Today's challenge is to go find one...learn to fold it...and stick it on your card!
Google a pattern for a dress , an animal , a bow ...

Tip: Find design that tends to be a bit flat. Share a link to your directions too!


Origami Wedding Dress Example

Wink F4A171 Pleated Curtains

I had fun with this- needed something a little extra to jazz up my window scene- and I think the window treatment helped Here's Pleated Curtains

Oh, I love origami - not quite as much as DH, LOL, he has about ten books if not more. In fact, I used to use a lot on cards before I got into stamping so I'll hope to be along later with something for this. Thanks for a fun challenge.

Thanks for the challenge Dawn! It gave me the opportunity to try a modified version of a technique I saw on Nichole Heady's (PTI) blog. Here is my card:

This was great fun, Dawn! I like doing fun fold cards but had never tried origami before. Thanks for the links to the videos. Here is my first try at an origami card --

A while back I made a card with a German Folded Paper Star in the middle of a banner.

I am definitely origami challenged-the instructions are clear as mud sometimes, but I managed to make a couple of fish! Doodle Gelli Fish
