Default TLC153 - Dahlia Fold (01/28/08)

I am so excited to be a guest host for this week's Try a New Technique Challenge.

A couple of months ago, I came across this gorgeous card by Shadow Mill. In her description, Shadow Mill mentioned that she used the "Dahlia" fold. I had never heard of it before so I searched on the internet for directions. I found this great website with directions and pictures too!

For the Dahlia fold you need 8 circles. The circles can be any size--just the tinier they are, the harder they are to fold. I found that the 1 3/8" circle punch makes a great size to work with. When folded, the 1 3/8" circles make a Dahlia flower that is just shy of 3" across.

Examples:

I also made an Origami Box with a Dahlia Flower on top

Thanks for playing and have fun! I can't wait to see what you create.
