Pleats on a Card

This is called the Drapery Fold. I learned how to make it from fellow Demo, Lyssa Zwolanek. Cut a piece of designer series paper, (these double-sided papers are perfect!) that measures 11 1/2" x 4" then score at 3, 4, 6. 7, 9 and 10 inches. Hold it so that the 3-inch score line is facing towards you, then start a long diagonal cut beginning at the 3-inch mark and angle it towards the top left near the corner, leaving about 1 1/4" at the end. Then fold on score lines in alternating directions, like a fan fold. Adhere to your card for an instant wow! I used the Rose Garden Thinlit die on top in the samples below. The designer series papers used below are: Color Collections, Timeless Elegance, and Perfectly Artistic (SALE-A-BRATIONS)
