Folded Paper and a Video

I love coming up with new ways to use paper on my layouts and cards.  I used this quick folded paper technique for my "Sweetie Pie" card I posted a few days ago and was playing around with the idea of using the same squares to make different patterns. I realized just laying out the squares in a different way I could create a chevron zig zig pattern. 

For this card I used the Amy Tangerine paper collection.  Here is the card I made (love the canvas flower).  I love how the folded paper gives this card so much dimension.


Here is the video showing how I made the pinwheel design and the chevron design using these simple folded squares - I hope you enjoy it!


Thanks for stopping by.
