Week of Pleats

It was actually more like an afternoon than a week for me. I had every intention of trying all of the projects from Jones Design Company's week of pleated projects, but alas I only had a few hours during a nap and a little time when Josh was home from work to get my pleat on ;)

I started with the pleated medallion, and LOVED how adorable and easy it was. I planned to make a bunch to hang from the ceiling in my craft room, but I'll get to that at some point (maybe) ;)

Also in this picture is some pleated ribbon inspired by this project. I may glue it to the bottom of this oval plaque that I just painted chalkboard paint on :) I'm still not sure, but I love the bright orange color!

And here are my favorites - the pleated tissue paper notecards. Aside from finally getting some sleep the past two nights...these little beauties were the highlight of my spring break!

What do you think?

I'm thinking about selling some in my shop with a hand-stamped message on the front and space to write your note on the back. Or maybe just plain, so you can write your own message on the front.

Doesn't that look adorable? I already popped a couple of these in the mail. LOVE.

So what do you think? Would you like a set of pleated tissue notecards? I may be putting some in my shop AND am thinking of doing a little giveaway in the next week or so :)

Such a fun way to spend what few free moments I had during my break from work (that didn't involve taking care of my little sicky)!


  1. Your projects turned out great!

  2. I love your note cards! Such a cute idea. Perfect for gifts too.

    1. Thanks Brandi :) I checked out your project the pillow you made. I need to look at old clothes more carefully before I donate them to see if I can repurpose them into something else. Such a good idea!

  3. SO cute!
    And the ruffled cards are wonderful. I like that the paper is a darker brown - really brings out the colors.
    This also reminded me: I happened upon this charity called Splashes of Joy where you can send some on your homemade cards which they send out to home-bound people due to age or illness etc. Made me think of you and your beautiful cards. If you're ever interested you can check them out at
    Glad you had a bit of time to craft!
