Fold of the Week: Let's Wrap It Up!
Here's what's great about this week's idea:
- Everything about this piece says texture – both visually and haptically. There's contrast in papers, and texture in the die cut.
- The opening experience is unique, and so is the clever way this two-piece composite brochure was assembled.
If you'd like to see a really nice variation of this format, revisit episode 544.
