DIY or Buy: Accordion Paper Folding
Posted By Erin Furey On October 4, 2013 @ 2:30 pm In DIY/Crafts,Inspiration | 3 Comments
I love a good craft tutorial, and the UK site Mini Eco  by Kate Lilley makes seemingly complicated projects totally doable. Her "Accordion Paper Folding" how-to  is one of the best I've ever seen, complete with detailed photos and easy-to-follow instructions.
Kate's used the technique to create pretty candle holders ...
... but once you get the skill down, it's a cinch to make so many things, including our Glassine-Gem Paper Lanterns .
And just ask anyone who starts paper folding — it's addictive! So who knows? With enough practice, imagine making something as exquisite as the paper masterpieces by Michigan-based Matt Shlian , for use as a ceremony marker or photo backdrop. Well ... full disclosure: the guy earned an undergraduate degree in sculpture, and a masters in paper engineering—but the good news is, he takes commissions !
