Paisley Power

I just used up all of the navy and copper paper out of this package. I need to order more designer paper. Good thing there's a sale beginning tomorrow!
I love hidden panel cards and I had an idea in my head using the last strip of the copper and navy paper. Well then I saw how Lyssa Zwolanak did one and I loved hers. So this is my version.

Beautiful Papers Make Lovely Things

With the paper sale beginning this Saturday, I wanted to make something that really shows the gorgeous double-sided paper Stampin' Up! has. This origami folio is fun and I haven't made one in years and years! I remember making them with my 5th graders for Mothers' Day when I was teaching. We used wrapping paper and inside they put a pretty card or letter they made for Mom.

I stepped it up by using the Blooms and Bliss designer series paper. I just love the double sided-look for this project. I also adjusted the size to hold 4 cards and envelopes. Using the coordinating stamp set Blooms and Wishes just really makes a professional looking gift. Below are the folio and the 4 cards. Of course I stamped the insides and envelopes to match:)
