TSC28: Flip 'N Fold

This month, The Stampsmith Challenge is to find interesting ways of incorporating folds into a project. For example, use an interesting new fold if you are creating a card, incorporate pieces or parts that flip up, down or open on your project, or put folded pieces of paper or fabric into your creation in some way. Lots of latitude on your interpretation of this one!  Be sure to play along for your chance to win your choice of a full sheet of Stampsmith Stamps!

Here's my little creation made with beautiful paper kindly given to me by my SIL, Janice.  In the finished piece you can't really tell that the picture frame is made from folded paper but I took a few pictures along the way to show you its skeleton!  This brilliant frame fits a 4"x6" picture perfectly and is made from just one piece of card stock - too easy!

The origami frame is complete, it just needs a 4" x 6" photo inserted
Pattern from The Origami Handbook by Rick Beech
I inserted a 4" x 6" piece of card stock mounted on cardboard
Here is a view from the back showing the "kickstand"
A very distressed Stampsmith image completes the project
