June 3 Lasting Memories How Do You Fold

This week at Lasting Memories the challenge is “How Do You Fold?”- Use some kind of paper folding technique like iris folding or teabag folding etc. on your layout. (Please include instructions or even a link to how you did your folding.)

2 page Layout using circle folds for the border

Page 1-Circle folds are at the bottom

Page 2-Circle Folds are at the bottom
Cardstock and Paper: Core'dinations Lemonage Vintage Collection,
 Paper House Shamrock Stamp
Ink: Colorbox Bisque, Colorbox Verdigris
Adhesives: Glue Dots, Scotch ATG
Tools: Martha Stewart Score Board, Marvy 2" Circle Punch 
Embellishments: Micheals Shamrock Buttons, Petaloo,
 TPC Studio Class Act Fabric Buttons, Stash

Directions for Circle Folds
1. Use double sided paper or use your Xyron to glue two 2 1/2" 
strips back to back.
2. Using a 2" punch, punch out a circle.

3. Score the circle at 1 1/2" 
4. Flip the circle around and score
 again at 1 1/2"
5.  Fold each side down and secure with a glue dot.
6. Add embellishment or use as is. I laid mine
 side by side to make the border and I alternated
the embellishment.
The owner of Lasting Memories (Karen) is sponsoring the challenge 
week. She has a surprise bag of scrapping goodies for someone:) 
Can't wait to see your fantastic folds!
Have a wonderful week!
