Paper Folding

I was planning to make cards for World Card Making Day incorporating the latest challenge at DCM to use paper folding, but I got side tracked and it all took longer than I had planned.

Anyway here are the results. A little Christmas surprise.
The purple parcel is a little folded box.
And when you pull the box open ...............
He is stuck on a little folded paper spring, so that's double paper folding points for me.
Also thought I would try something new in honour of the day. I had bought a brayer recently and hadn't had a chance to use it.
I think the paper I chose wasn't as glossy as I thought so back to the drawing board for that one.

Teacher training day today and so typically it is pouring with rain. Might take them down to the library if it clears up enough later. Otherwise I had planned some tidying up, although I can hear them in the other room and it sounds like the opposite of tidying to me!!

How cute is that! One of my crafty friends showed me how to make those mini boxes, but I never applied it to a card!
