Using a Bone Folder

Introduction

Use a bone folder to perfectly fold scrapbook pages, artful letters, and origami boxes.

Place a ruler on the paper where you want the fold. Hold the ruler firmly in place with one hand. Run the pointed tip of a bone folder along the length of the ruler, pressing it firmly down as you go. Remove the ruler and fold the paper along the scored line.

    XtremeC: Using the picture above as a guide, the part you are seeing would be the inside when folded in half. The bone folder makes a small 'valley' indentation.

    So would you fold the indent on the inside or the outside of the card or paper please? Thank you. :)
