      1. The papers are from the Imagine That! and Mermaid Cove collections.

  1. I love this idea of the fold over layout. I tried it with the folded paper folded on an angle as well with 2 folds so that there is no over hanging paper. It works great and gives a different look to my page

  2. bonus, you could also use the ‘folded-over’ area as a pocket, if you had something you wanted to tuck into that space!! I will definitely be making a couple layouts using this technique, for sure.
