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.

That's what I get for not checking in early - I could have been having fun with pleats instead of doing all the housework, LOL. Off to play now - I like the sound of this .
Thanks for standing in for Lynn, Fern.

Thanks Fern! (I did look at everyone's pleats posted so far because I couldn't figure out what to do.....I usually don't look until I've made my card. I chose a pleated edge--now if I can just get to it!)
This is a wonderful idea. Hmmm...gotta get the kids off to school first..thanks!
