Easy Fun Folding Techniques.

Hello and welcome back. Thank you for visiting with me today. I have 2 cards to share with you featuring simple to do fun folding techniques to add a little extra creativity to your handmade cards. Please note also that these folding techniques are not new nor are they my creations. They are a combination of simple Google and Pinterest searches. These are just my interpretations of that creative research. I am always grateful for the artists and designers that influence me!
