Welcome to my blog. Over the years that I have been stamping and paper crafting, I have so often been inspired by the ideas on other sites and blogs. I hope I can pay that back in some measure with my own. (In between laughs -- or cackles as my son calls it!)

Folded Trees

My friend and co-crafting teacher, Cheryl, gave me a lovely card with the folded Christmas tree.

I really liked it!  And I thought it would be a great way to use up scraps of paper (which are always overtaking my craft room; I think they multiply like tribbles).  Or, even gently-used gift wrap left over from opening presents on Christmas could be used.

So I rescued some gold gift wrap and played with the folds, and was able to reproduce it.

Cheryl's original is the green checkered one of the left; my version is the one with the recycled gift wrap on the right.
And of course, I wanted to try it with more layers on a oblong version.
Thanks Cheryl, I loved your card and it was great inspiration!

  1. I saw these on Marge's fb post~they're great! What a neat idea. I have done Iris folding and background with the wrapping paper but these are such a good idea!
