Spectacular Flower-Shaped Twist Fold - 60-Second Fold of the Week (Video)
Oh boy, this is a good one. This beautiful specimen of folding excellence arrived at foldfactory just in time to provide extra wow-factor right before Episode 300. From our good friends at Foremost Communications in Grand Rapids, Michigan, this gorgeous hexagonal flower-shaped twist fold was produced as a special event invitation for 600 lucky guests of Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park.
The exclusive event was to celebrate the grand opening of their Japanese Garden. From the opening experience to the off-line foil stamping of Japanese letters, to the gauzy Eames paper—no detail is overlooked. Inspiration: overload!
