Ruffles and Roses

 I tempted you a bit on Tuesday showing you the tutorial on how to create faux ruffles so today I've got the finish project to share with you.  I of course used my Cheery Lynn Dies and KaiserCraft latest collection, Tea Party.  

I love how girly this looks with the ruffles, the color pink and of course the handmade roses.  

Here is a list of all the dies used and remember to check out the tutorial for the ruffles if you haven't already

See you next week, 

Hugs, Lori

Faux Fabric Ruffles Tutorial

Today I have a quick little tutorial to share with you for making faux fabric ruffles.  

Step One: Cut card stock with a border die of your choice.  I used the Anastasia Border B136

Step Two: Spritz water on the front and back of your paper and let it soak in for a minute.

Step Three: Pinch and gather your paper along the top, letting the bottom ruffle out.  You could use tweezers or a piercer, but I find it’s just as easy with my fingers. 

Step Four: Slightly pull out to the desired look and let the paper dry completely.  If you want to speed up the drying time you can use a heat gun.  

Here is an example of the ruffle applied to a project.  Check back Friday for the finished project and to see how I used the faux fabric ribbon.
