From our childhood we have learned the art of folding paper, whether it be paper planes or paper boats. The fun of floating precisely creased paper boats in rain water form fond memories of my childhood. Today we are much more sophisticated and during this series of Fun Ways with Designer Series Paper, we are looking at folding beautiful paper.

Fold it

I used the beautiful Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to create this card. With one simple cut and a couple of folds on the DSP, this card goes from simple to having extra interest.

Measure halfway down the DSP panel and then cut about 5cm in. Fold each side back to reveal the other side of the paper. Then adhere this to embossed cardstock.

The daisy was punched out 3 times from Very Vanilla cardstock and coloured using a combination of Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. Once adhered together, I coloured the joins so it looked like a continuous flower.

This next card uses the curtain or drape fold on the Designer Series Paper for an interesting look. I’ve combined it with some ornaments from the Cherish the Season stamp set coloured in with Old Olive and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.

I created this card on my Facebook Live this afternoon in which I share measurements and tips.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have enjoyed this fun way of using your DSP. Please leave me a comment if you are enjoying this series and if you have tried any of these techniques as I’d love hearing about your creativity.
