Forum birthday

Jackie's birthday this month. I've been incredibly busy at work the past few weeks so it's been quite difficult to get my head round crafting recently but I was fascinated by this unusual card fold and had a play with it. (I've always loved origami)





... and here the link for the Youtube video if you want to have a go. (Thanks Leo!)

This looked so fabulous, I had to go to the Youtube video right away and try it. I see lots of applications for this fold. Thanks for sharing. (I tried it in a bigger size and it doesn't work. I'll have to work out the logistics.)
