Know when to fold 'em!

Hi all!
It's Angela from the Design Team, here with a couple projects using some new goodies from Scrappy Chic!

It's no secret that I'm a big fan of Sassafras's designs -- I love the bold use of color and whimsical sense of design! With their latest lines, they've added a new kind of embellishment, one I don't think I've seen anywhere before: Foldies!  Here, let me show you a card:

I simply punched out a flower cluster from the 12x12 sheet of foldies, folded up the little tabs, and adhered it to my card front, curving it to fit just the way I wanted it to. I also added some letter stickers from Echo Park's latest collection (love that one, too!). There's dimensional adhesive under the flowers, but that's just a precaution -- the folds themselves give a nice (but still mailable) depth.

I used another on a layout -- wanna see? Ok:

Aww, sweet cat :). Here, the flower cluster is folded and layered over some other Sassafras papers and banner stickers, as well as my photos. Again, the little folded tabs allowed me to curve the cluster just the way I wanted it. Added bonus: it has a lovely, fabric-like look to it, even though it's plain old paper.

I hope you give this new embellishment a try! Have a delightful day.

Other Supplies: Card -- Lilybee paper, Hero Arts background stamp. Layout -- Sassafras Starters and Sweetly Smitten papers, Doodlebug and Cosmo Cricket alphas, Girls' Paperie label holder, MME Lush brad, MME Stella & Rose stamps, Pink Paislee tape, vintage typewriter.

Great job with the foldies. They remind me of the paper dolls when I was a kid!!

I thought the foldies were a great idea and just had to buy them. Can't wait to give them a try!
