How is your week going? I have a busy week this week and on Thursday we are going away so that we can attend my uncles 85th Birthday lunch that he is organising himself. Today I will be helping at a Felting Workshop I think we are making bags.
When I made my thank you cards back in January I created background papers for them with Distress Oxides. I made the papers a bit bigger than I needed. When the backgrounds were trimmed down there were small inky strips left over. Being me I had to save them they just couldn't go to waste. So until now they have sat in a box waiting to be used. I saw a demo from Maria at Clarity stamps and she was weaving with strips of paper. I just had to have a go.
This is just a small card in fact just 4" x 4". I used the Gerbera Dies Square Background die, from the John Next Door range, to create a pretty aperture. Then on the reverse of the aperture I stuck double sided tape. I only removed the top of the tape from two adjacent sides. Then I stuck strips going down along one side. Finally I used the remaining strips to weave the background. Once I had finished I exposed the rest of the sticky and stuck the ends down. All the ends were trimmed so they didn't show.
You can see the detail of the weaving behind the Thanks die.
I added some of the butterflies cut with the Small Butterflies die set from the John Next Door range.
I do like to have a few thank you cards in my stash you never know when someone will be kind and you will need one.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
Enjoy the rest of the week
