CHALLENGE 24 ~ Paper Folding

First I must apologise for not posting the winner of the blog candy, the winner will be announced tomorrow morning, and secondly thank you to all who joined in last week

This week we would love to see anything that has paper folding included in your creation.

It could be Teabag Folding, perhaps a Bouquet Holder, maybe a Folded Frame, or perhaps you have your own idea's

I have a wonderful book called Susans's Paper Engineering Secrets from Hot of the Press and through out the week I shall add a different fold that I have conquered


To start off with I have used Teabag Folding for these two cards, the christmas tree uses
10 x 2" square
First I punched out 10 squares with a 2" scalloped edge punch

1. Fold the paper into half and then unfold it.





Fold in half the other way and unfold it.
2. Then fold from corner to corner then unfold it. Fold the other two corners together then unfold it.
3. Push together to form this shape





Fold the left hand upper corner to top point and repeat with other side



This is the finished shape



Then slot them altogether








The second card used the same fold












Which I joined together slotting each one into place and then I turned it over to achieve this affect






Here is my card for this week, teabag folding again. Love your Christmas tree, thanks for the tutorial DAISYCHAIN
