The next scrapbooking technique I'm going to share with you is bargello.  Bargello was originally a needlework technique that used rows of color to create geometric shapes.  Quilters and paper crafters have adapted it resulting in stunning scrapbook layouts.

Bargellos paper folding technique

I can't believe its been 10 years since my daughters and I took this picture.  They were just young ladies.  They are now beautiful women!

What you will need:
Six sheets of coordinating paper
Bone folder
Paper cutter
Metal ruler

Cut four 1.5 inch strip out of each paper, score length-wise .25" from the edge and fold, and layer on your 12x12 piece of card stock alternating patterns.  Turn project over and trim the excess off.  Finally, mat your photo and you have a very eye catching layout that looks like you spent hours putting together!

You can create any design with these strips that you like.  You are only limited by your imagination.  I hope you will try this technique you will be happy with the results.

Do what inspires you,
Cyndy G.
