We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Bend me, shape me ...

This week's Craft Barn challenge is about paper folding. Being a fan of origami, I've made a Christmas card using the dahlia flower, which is very effective when using plain/patterned double sided paper. See here for instructions.

I've made a small flower using one inch paper circles, added some gold beads for the centre, and a die-cut holly flourish.

Now I must get down to making some more Christmas cards - oh - and do some Christmas shopping!

Happy December!


  1. Lovely paper folded flower, the dahlia makes a very festive card.

  3. Your design is so beautiful, I love the paper folding. I started with cardmaking in 2006 with paperfolding, I still have stash of papers, but stamping took over. Thanks for stopping in to take the tour at my blog :) Have a great week, xx
