I chose this second one to start with. The tricky part is finding the right papers for these. You want it sturdy enough to handle the medium you will use, to be durable - and still to be able to take the folding. I will have to play with this more.
I used a high quality office paper - but it buckled with my water colors.
And while these are meant to be done fairly quickly, I admit it took me most of my day! But it was fun.
I am happy to know how to make these because they would make sweet little gifts for friends and family.
Here's my little story.
