Patchwork Paper

hi Crafters

I made the paper using 1/4" stips of 4 different patterned papers. Jennifer McGuire taught it on the class video. Clearly I goofed and didn't keep my pattern consistent nor did cut them all the same - duh on my part. I was just bopping along cutting paying NO attention. I wasn't going to start over though. Mainly because I don't really like the colors I chose. If I had used pinks and reds I would have started over ;-)  I think I will create patchwork paper in the next day or so and do a better job.

Basically you just cut a gazillion strips at 1/4" of 12x12 paper then glue them down on a 12x12 piece of cardstock. Its pretty cool.

I was also only supposed to round the corners on two of the corners of each square - ummm yah, I accidently rounded a WRONG corner so had to do them all. Trust me Jennifer McGuire's is MUCH better but you get the jist of it.

butttt, look at the cool diecuts I made from the patchwork paper - I think these are pretty cool -

Thanks for stopping by,
