Origami Leaf Card

The same way grass is greener on the other side of the fence, paper shops on the opposite side of the country look extra enticing to me. Case in point, Paper Zone, a small chain of stores in Oregon and Washington. I'd love to visit in person, but meanwhile, I'm following Paper Zone's blog that features all sorts of paper crafting ideas.

In celebration of a new line of two-sided origami paper, store employee Malyse posted a tutorial (sadly no longer available) for these gorgeous autumn leaf cards. More like a tri-fold letter than a card, they're honestly not difficult to make - and you can trust origami-challenged me when I say that.

I gave this cherry blossom card to my sister for her birthday and used Malyse's instructions to create a vellum enclosure. I liked the way the Asian-inspired card design was complemented by the leaf.

A little tip - make the accordion folds quite close together as Malyse did for the prettiest result.Link
