Now that the kids are back in school, I’m starting to find a little time to search online for new inspiration for my projects.
I’ve been eyeing this gorgeous duvet cover from Urban Outfitters:
Unfortunately, it got a big veto by my husband because he feels it would be too girly for the bedroom. And for once…I have to admit that he’s right.
So I thought, “Why not use it as a source of inspiration for my next crafty paper project?” Even though ruffles have traditionally been made from fabric, I think they are also well suited for paper.
Here’s a quick way to make paper ruffles without the use of a sewing machine:
1). Adhere a strip of double-sided tape along the top on a strip of paper.
2). Randomly fold and pleat along the line of adhesive. To make rigid papers more pliable, lightly mist it with water before folding.
3). Flip over and adhere backside of the strip to the face of your project.
So what do you think? Are you up for a little ruffle making? How about a giveaway to get you started? Leave me a comment here and I’ll pick one winner to receive the Botanical Christmas and Winter Fairy Tales Petite Papers by Webster’s Pages that I used on this card and a roll of Scor-Tape. All comments must be received by midnight (MDT) on Thursday, Sept. 1.
