Blueprint No. 004

Blueprint | BasicGrey


Normally when I sit down to find an inspiration piece for a Blueprint, I look for an image with good bones; one that will translate well into a clear and simple grid. But this time around, I wanted something slightly different. I wanted this Blueprint to be more technique-driven and take advantage of both sides of Mint Julep’s beautiful patterned papers. So when I came across this amazing backdrop from Martha Stewart Weddings, I decided to try my hand at a little paper folding!

I started out by cutting 2×2″ squares from various Mint Julep papers (I used my paper trimmer, but this would be far easier with a square punch). I then found the middle point of each square and folded one corner in towards the center. Once I had a bunch of folded squares to choose from, I laid them out on my background paper and played around with the arrangement until I was ready to glue them down. I also included photos, Snippets, and a bunch of stickers to break up the grid and create a little more visual interest.
