What is this folding technique called?

I was watching QVC this past weekend (all craft stuff) and a folded
card was shown.  (I know I've seen this on Carol Duvall.)  Someone
called in and asked what it was called and the response was "just look
in any stamping book and it will be there."  Anyway, I will try to
describe it and maybe someone will recognize it and tell me where to
find instructions!  The paper was folded in either triangle or
diagonal format.  Several pieces of the folded papers were joined end
to end by slipping one folded piece into another and gluing.  It
looked like one row of a honeycomb.  It folded flat, then when you
held one end, it opened like a concertina.  Almost like 3 triangles
put together.  The sides folded in.  Does this ring a bell????  Of
course using the terms folded and card and stamp in any search engine
brings up gazillions of sites.

Re: What is this folding technique called?
I looked at the sites and unfortunately none of them are what I'm
looking for.  I wish I could describe it better because I know if
anyone saw it, they'd recognize it instantly!  If anyone has any
further ideas, keep them coming.  Thanks.

Apologies for 2 posts in a row, but I just realized Arlene is correct.
 I went to the Carol Duvall section of hgtv.com and looked up
"accordion books."  There are 3 tecniques shown, and the third one is
what I'm looking for.  The directions call it a folded paper
"starburst."

Whoo-hoo!! One for me!!! Glad I could help, I have made those before, it
really is very easy, you just have to rremember to turn the paper over the
second time you score it diagonally. They come out so cute!
