Tip and Technique Wednesday

Hello all!

Can you believe it is Wednesday already, this week is flying by!  Not to mention, so is August, it's the 24th, yikes!  Mu DH returns to work next week after being home with me for 6 weeks.  I will really miss him during the day.  It won't be long now before the kiddies are back in school and we all resume some semblance of normal routine.  Not sure how I feel about that.

Well at least it's tip day, that's good news right?

Today's tip is a little of a spin off of all of the great corrugated embellishments available on the market.  But what happens if you do not have the perfect corrugated embellie for your project, or one is not available to purchase.   Well, I'm sure by now you know the answer to that question... I am going to tell you how to make a knock off corrugated embellie that is super cute and super easy!

First gather your supplies, you will need your favourite die cutting tools, either something like a Spellbinders die, Cuttlebug die or a Cricut to cut out whatever shape you feel will most enhance your project.  You will also need Kraft cardstock, a paper crimper and a ink pad (I really like using light colours for this but you can really use anything that will compliment your design). 

 Now cut your desired shapes.
 And run them through the crimper.
This is what you will end up with.
 Next you will ink the edges, use lots of ink to really enhance the highs and lows of your shape and then adhere them to your project.
 Here's another view, see all that dimension, isn't it awesome.
Thanks for popping by for another Wednesday tutorial!
Laura
