Dare to Get Dirty - Origami Diamond Fold

YAY!!! I am finally official enough to be a hostess for the "Dare to Get Dirty" Challenge over on SCS!! What fun!!

I chose to do a "funky fold" ... I LOVES me a good ol' funky fold!! I saw the cutest little card at Stampin' Up Convention with this same fun fold ... and I dissected it and made one of my own!!! LOVE-LOVE-LOVE-HEART-HEART-HEART this!! I wanted to share it with all y'all ... so I did my own little video tutorial for it (don't worry ... it's easy, quick AND fun!!). Check it out!!








Cool, right??? You really SHOULD try this!! Here is what it looks like with one flap open ...








And here it is TOTALLY open!!! I am DEFINITELY gonna be makin' me some more of these!!! Soooooooo fun! And it feels kinda "new" to me, so it will take me a while to get bored with it!

thanks so much for sharing! my club gals are going to love this!

not that you have all kinds of time on your hands, but if you had a category of "fun folds", it would be great to peruse those projects!

thanks again!
