Fadtastic folding!

You can’t fold a piece of paper in half more than 7 times.


I learned this ‘fact’ when I was a child and set about trying to disprove it at every available opportunity, using a variety of papers, thick and thin, until I got bored.

Which was probably after about a day…

However, it did lead me to the world of paper folding, a skill I’ve admired for many years but never mastered. Until now.

Mastered may be pushing it…

I might even get it printed on canvas. (I’ve tried to create little beasties in the majority of them.)
