More Waterfall Fold Technique

Okay! I'm back! Start with your 10x2.5 inch strip. (refer to my last post for sizes) You'll need to score it first at 5 1/4 inches--then do 5 more scores all 1/2 inch apart. This is where you'll adhere your 2.5x2.5 inch squares.
Fold it at the first score line you made. It's not quite in half. That's what you want, since you'll need to pull the bottom section to make the "waterfall" effect. Glue your 2.5" squares to each 1/2 inch section, starting from the bottom score line and moving up the paper.
Once your square are all glued on (I don't have mine in this next photo) glue the waterfall section to your base strip (the top half, not the bottom part that you will pull on)
Now you'll want to glue your base strip (on the outer edges only) to your page itself. I recommend journaling on your squares before you glue them down (it works though, even if you journal AFTER the gluing). You'll also want to give a small title to each of your squares. If this is all as clear as mud to you, you can go to this episode of Craft TV Weekly to get some more instruction.
Have fun!
