Sunshine and Flowers 1 of 4: Elizabeth

Whether on paper or outside our window... we're celebrating Sunshine and Flowers here in the Studio.

Today my flowers are blooming on paper fans.

Rectangular pieces of lightweight white and cream papers were first scored at 3/4-inch intervals.  Another score line was then added lengthwise across the middle.  

The Unfolding 40-450

"The Unfolding" was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink across the top half and then the paper was turned to stamp again along the bottom half.  This will give the effect that the design is radiating from the center when folded.


The paper was then folded accordion style along the scored lines.  String knotted around the middle keeps the folds secure when one set of ends are glued together and the other set of ends are attached to colorful popsicle sticks.

Stay tuned to see where Jill's flowers will be blooming.
