Pleating.

Morning! I am up over at Paper Crafts Connection today and talking about paper pleating! :) I highlighted some different possibilities for you to easily add some pleated paper to your projects.
If you are looking for a more uniformed pleat, just be sure to score your paper before you fold. The example below is scored at every 1" and then 1/2".
Like to pleat? Want to give it a go?
I posted a challenge HERE for you to link up your creation and a chance to win a box of goodies from me! :) :) I would LOVE for you to play along! :)

Wonderful card...terrific colours. Thanks for the tutorial on pleating. Don't know why I didn't think to emboss the folds first.

I love the pleating! Makes it look so feminine, like it's wearing a skirt :)
