Paper Folding Project

Good morning! This is Beatriz from Amazing Grace. Today's project is very easy and fun to make!

 Step 1:
Cut out a good number of 1” wide strips from  variety of patterned  papers. The number of strips needed will vary depending on the size of your paper.


                  
Step 2:
Fold each strip in half lengthwise.

Step 3:
Alternating the patterns, glue the strips overlapped onto a 4” x 12” piece of cardstock; angle them or "fan" them if you’d like.                             

Step 4:
When the glue is dry, turn the piece over and trim off the overhanging edges.


Step 5:   
Voila! Look how pretty it turned out!!!


Step 6:
I made way too many strips so I used them up making other shapes.                                   


        
Here is the layout I made using this awesome technique.
                           

Here is a close-up of the large circle.

Hope you enjoyed my project! Thank you Sheila for having me one more time! Have a great and blessed day!
