Crafty Creations Challenges - #158 Fancy Folds

 Naughty Blogger - playing up on me AGAIN!! I couldn't get my post done on Wednesday - had to wait until my IT genius returned today - WHAT would I do without him!!!!!

Anyway....the theme this week at Crafty Creations Challenges is.....

Fancy Folds

I watched a video of Teresa Collins making this dinky lil 4"x4" mini matchbook album from ONE sheet of 12"x12" patterned paper.  I had to give it a go straight away!!

I used this yummy pink spot paper by Girls Paperie, accented with a few die cuts from October Afternoon, a gem from Recollections, sentiment from Cornish Heritage (I'm almost sure!!) and FOLDED some Pink Paisley tissue paper to create that lil pleat!  With the great instructions it was very easy and FUN!
 As you can see I still have to decorate the insides.....
This is how it all folds up - so cute!!  I left out one of the inside strips to allow some "bulk" from embellishments etc!!
