For the month of October, Stampin’ Up! is offering an amazing sale on our beautiful Designer Series Paper.  This promotion is one of my favorites, since I tend to use a lot more DSP in the Fall making Christmas gifts.

To highlight all the wonderful DSP we have to offer, the Sisters In Stamping decided to share inspirational projects featuring these beautiful papers.  For my project, I let the paper do all the talking – no sentiment or greeting necessary!  I decided to focus on the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper and a fancy fold.

I’ve seen this Drapery Fold technique all over social media in the stamping and crafting world.  This is the first time I’ve tried it, and I LOVE IT!  It is so easy and fun…and you get the pleasure of seeing both sides of the DSP.

The basics of this technique is to take a long strip of DSP and cut a diagonal section off the bottom to allow the folds to layer.  By scoring and folding in 1″ to 1-1/2″ sections, you will get this beautiful drapery look – thus the technique name!

I really didn’t want to complicate this project with a sentiment or other stamped images, so I just layered on the paper and tied a pretty bow with our Organza Ribbon.  I’m so glad this ribbon has stayed around for so long.  It truly is one of my favorites!
