Iron Cross with Sneaky Hidden Flaps - 60-Second Fold of the Week (Video)
We love a great Iron Cross modification at Foldfactory. After all, it's great to discover fresh new twists on Fold of the Week classics. This week's featured solution is from our friends at Suttle-Straus in Waunakee, Wisconsin. Designed by Firepower Design Company of Madison for the National Center for Women and Information Technology, this Iron Cross has a unique opening order and sneaky hidden flaps added to the panels. The flaps become a fun surprise and an eye-catching focal point for additional content. Even better, this week's format was folded entirely by machine!
