Thank You Twistaflex

I am a bit late posting today as I spent the day at a club I go to once a month. Here is the project we did today ... mine is a little different to most of the others as I varied mine a little to create what I call a "Twistaflex" card ... some of you might know it as a Triangle Trifold .... I learnt them many years ago with the "Twistaflex" name and that is what I prefer to call them. If you have ever made them you will notice that if you hold the bottom left corner with your left hand & the top right corner with your right hand ... that all you need to do then is twist it to open ... hence the name! I will try and get some time in the next couple of days to make the version my friends at club did as that also had some fun ideas.

The DP I used here is actually from an origami book I purchased quite cheaply last year ... it is a think book and on side has instructions for different origami folds & on the reverse is this wonderful DP ... there were about 5 or so different patterns throughout the book ... as I purchased the book more for the DP then the origami folds I don't feel too guilty pulling out a page or two.


Here is the inside of my card.

Recipe:
Stamps: Artfully Asian - SU
Paper: White; Blue; Gold; Oriental DP
Other: Black Ink; Gold Brilliance Ink; Square Nestabilities; Gold Ribbon
