Mini Modified Miura Ori Invitation: 60-Second Fold of the Week
This week, we feature one of the most exciting format modifications we've ever seen on the show.
Influenced by the herringbone scoring pattern of the elaborate Miura Ori, this delightful invitation for Cooper Hewitt's 2018 Garden Party brilliantly simplifies the structure into only a few distinctive folds, while maintaining all of the character and style of the format.
Do not miss this week's inspired design!
