Crazy Crafters blog hop with special guest Rachel Tessman

Hello and welcome to my blog.

I am taking part in a blog hop with the Crazy Crafters team today. Our special guest for this hop is the fabulous
 Rachel Tessman from Stamp Your Art Out.

The Crazy Crafter team are all choosing a project of Rachels to CASE and then sharing everything about it with you here today.
You are currently visiting me Kim Oliver - KOCreations Cards. I have a list of all hop participants closer to the end of this post.

Here is project I have chosen to CASE.

I loved the idea of this design.
Origami, the angles and score lines that create this awesome folded card. AND it's interactive!
What more could a kid want 😍

Here is my project
I have created this for my daughter who will be turning 8 later in the year.
Nothing like being prepared 😉
