So, today I ventured into my craft room, since the kids were outside and the bf was away at work to complete a few cards, while in there I was on Facebook.. of course and noticed the wonderful Tracy, the President of Hemar was also live on Ustream playing. So, I joined her in some chit chat while we both crafted. made for a wonderfully productive afternoon!!! I loved it. Since moving I often miss having girls to chit chat with while crafting.
I began playing with some crepe paper (streamers). Two days ago I received a box full of goodies from Hemar for winning a game. so, I thought while chatting with Tracy, it only made sense to put them to use.. right??? I began making some trims. I love these in white because then at a later date I can mist them whatever colors I may like to coordinate with any card or layout. Here's a little tutorial on what I did.
|I cut strips of paper I didn't favor, but for some reason had. Turned them over to the white side. iIthen took some Helmar craft glue and put it down the center of the 12 inch strip.|
|Now you can buy crepe crafting paper, but I just use the dollar rolls of streamers. They work just as well! Pull off a large strip.|
|Take the strip the and just begin scrunching it. I drag mine along and then the glue hit all over the streamer. This is only one way to do it.|
|This is how it will be coming along after you just been slidding it into itself.|
|Upclose shot of how great these are.|
|Pull off a piece of paper and take your glue and make a large circle.|
|Ball it up in the center and then put it down. Then just begin wrapping it around as you've seen a billion times in a billion places.. lol|
|This is the ending result of a rather cute crepe paper flower. Ready to be misted when I need it.|
