HSS #98 Fancy Folds!


Today's challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is to make a project with a fancy fold! If you google "fancy Folds" you will fund millions of different ways to fold paper on your card or scrapbook!

I decided to do the fancy folded tree and to do it on a scrapbook page!

The three trees in the front are half circles folded back and forth. It's a very simple technique with a big wow factor.

I also used lots of BLING! Red Glitter Paper was cut with the framelit label as well as Stars#2 die (and layered of the chipboard stars cut with the same die.) I also used Go Go Boot Alpha Sizzlets for the word Stars.

Now, I first tried covering the chipboard stars with the new Dazzling Details Cherry Cobbler. It worked great, but was using up all my DDCC! So, I got smart and just cut the rest of them with the die out of the glitter paper.


You can see a little bit of difference between the top two stars (DD) and the other one (paper.)

So what kind of fancy fold can you use in one of your projects this week? Make sure you link back and show us! Have fun!
