The Rectangular Tulip Fold Invitation: 60-Second Fold of the Week
This week, we're featuring a stylish and surprising "low-budget wonder" - a Rectangular Tulip Fold Invitation. Designer Chris Kozarich of NYC, was charged with the task of making something spectacular on a modest budget for a kaleidoscope-themed fundraiser for client Atlanta Botanical Garden.
Kozarich modified a classic square Tulip Fold, turning it into a mail-friendly proportion that opens with flair. Expertly printed by Standard Press in Atlanta, we think you'll find this invitation to be a breath of fresh air!
