August Design Team Creative Challenge

It's time for another Design Team Creative Challenge with my friends at My Favorite Things. This month, Christina had a challenge for us, to incorporate a fun fold into our projects.  There are so many different creative folds, and we can use any of them, no standard cards today baby!

**by the way, I'm offering Blog Candy featuring a new MFT a la modes image
and TWO Die-namics. Be sure to read this post here**

Me, well I've always loved the "joy fold" - and I reached for my new Pure Innocence: Caramel Apple and added on a sentiment with the File Tab Die-namic.

It is a side opening card, and for mine, you un-tie the bow to see what's inside..... you'll see I've edged the front penel with the Simply Scallops Die-namic. Here's a tip, I have a little shirt box that I've been decimating to use as an additional layer for strength.  I cut once with paper, once with thin cardboard and it makes my pieces a little more durable.  

and then here's the fun inside! That little flap covers the inside panel, and I tucked another portion of the sentiment inside.  I've used the fish tail banner from the First Place Award Ribbon and one of the Pretty Posies cut from canvas.  

You know why I love fun folds like this? You can use a lot of different pattern papers, because you know what, if you use up your pattern paper, you can justify buying even MORE. *giggle*

Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for a full list of designers participating in today's Design Team Creative Challenge. I can't wait to see what the girls have folded up for the occasion!
