Cut Card Challenge

Paper Patch Craft has a card challenge now through the 15th of December.  The challenge is to create a card with a cut in the front.  I couldn't sleep this morning and I decided to take on this challenge (since I am on the Design Team and because it's just plain fun).  We hope you will want to play along too.

I made the burlap flower myself using the same technique in my ribbon rose tutorial.

  • I cut a strip of burlap about 8"-12" long and 1" wide.  I then folded it in half length wise so that I am working with the folded edge at the top and the frayed ends at the bottom.
  • I then tightly rolled the edge about 4 turns to make the center of my rose.
  • From this point I didn't leave the strip folded in half, and folded the strip down and away from the center. I just rolled it as I went. (see video above for better explanation)
  • It's not a bad idea to add a dab of hot glue here and there.
  • When it was to the desired size, I cut the end and tucked it underneath then hotglued the flower down onto a circle of paper I had pre-punched.
So cute!!
