Best of Fold of the Week: Crazy and Unique Folds
This week, we’ll look at the best of crazy and unique folds. I could have taken this in many different directions, but I focused on the ones that have generated the most buzz and excitement over the years:
- I’ve got four major specialty categories, each with two samples – one is elaborate, one is accessible.
- This episode is proof that great ideas can evolve into new solutions that meet a different budget or design objective.
And that’s a wrap on episode 2 - I hope you enjoyed it! I'll see you in two weeks for episode #3! Thanks for watching and — I appreciate you.
