Hi everyone, Pattie here with a Tuesday tutorial. I will be showing you how to create the grass portion on the card. It's actually box pleated paper. I love that look and have been box-pleating paper for some time now. You can use a variety of border punch to change the look and make it yours.
When scoring a strip of paper for box pleating, please remember that your paper shrink by about 1/2 of the original length. So if you score a 12" piece of paper, it will be 6" when you are done. If you want to create a box pleat border for a 12x12 layout, you would need 2 strips of 12" paper, adhered together to make a long enough strip for your layout. When scoring, you will need to score at the following dimensions.
The 1st score is at 1/2", then every 1/4", then 3/4", 1/4", 3/4", etc. until you have scored the whole strip. Have fun!!
