I purchased several packages of Easter grass for a few of my projects this year and have quite a bit left over. Today's tip is especially for those of you who just need a bit of grass - or want your grass to coordinate perfectly with your project.
1. First, cut your paper to a desired size. (For my project below, I cut my strips to 2x6 inches as I wanted relatively small bits of grass due to the little baskets I had made.)
2. Run your paper through your crimper, being careful to crimp in the opposite way that you will be cutting your paper.
|Note the direction of the crimping compared to the direction of the cuts.|
5. Add your Easter grass to your project!
|These baskets are little - cut at 5" with Easter 2010.|
