Pleating 101

I love pleating!  I mean looove it!  But I’ve always been too scared to try it, or let me say it like this: I’ve always been too lazy to figure out how to do it!  LOL.  But a friend told me how super easy it is, so I am passing it on to you! 

Using a scoring tool, score 1/2 inch then do 1/4 inch, 1/4 inch, 1/2 inch until you get to the end of your paper.  Then start folding.  Skip the 1/2 inch then down 1/4, up 1/4 skip the 1/2, down the 1/4, up the 1/4 skip the 1/2 until you are done.  Now if you want a smaller pleat do all 1/4 inches.  The world is your pleating board! 

Happy Scrappy,

Mandie
