Welcome to this weeks "Quick Tip Tuesday". Today, I wanted to share with you this new spiraled paper banner that I learned to make. It makes a wonderful embellishment to cards, scrapbook pages or home decor.
I used this technique on this week's color challenge. Here is what you will need a thin strip of card stock, bone folder and a pencil.
First you take your thin strip of paper and run your bone folder down it with your thumb on top. You do this several times and you should notice it start to curl. It is just like making ribbon curly ribbon with scissors. To achieve a tighter curl I wrapped it around a pencil. Then I just trimmed the ends into a banner shape and adhere.
Here is a great video by Catherine Pooler showing this technique on a card. The double sided paper turned out great.
This sadly will be my last "Quick Tip Tuesday", our family is going through some life changing events so I am putting my hobby to the side for a little while. Once we are settled back down, I hope to be back and part of this wonderful group. I have enjoyed all your wonderful comments and support. Please be sure to come back tomorrow to check out our Wednesday Winners.
