Card and Folds

This is a creative card I got - just noticed today, tucked in a book that came back with Florian. It was made by Alyssa.

Note the unique folded squares that make up the frame.

In two pretty papers, set in opposite directions
We will use the reason that "imitation is the most sincere form of flattery" to add the directions for how to make these folded forms.

Start with a square, and fold in half, then crosswise each way to look like this.

Push sides in on the folds to form a triangle.

It will look like this. (The end corners actually match; perspective is distorted in this photo).

Then turn one top corner to the middle....

..... then the other corner likewise, and you are done. Now make many more of these and create a border.
I anticipate using this for cards sometime. Thanks, Alyssa.


  1. Alyssa went through a period when she was making a lot of beautiful, unique cards using paper fold techniques, decorative punching and other methods. I keep encouraging her to do more! More! More!

  2. Totally agree: more! Maybe she would show us some? Or how to do decorative folds?
