Sometimes I like to create 'faux chipboard' elements for my pages when I don't have the right embellishment for a page. Here's how.
- Cut out 4 or more of the same shape from a piece of cardstock. I used my silhouette Cameo. You could also use a Cricut or even hand cut the pieces. I chose to do scissors.
- I cut the shape that I will be using as the top layer into 3 sections to make it look more like a pair of scissors.
- I pierced holes around the edges and then hand stitched all the way around the top layer piece to add a little interest. I chose to use yellow thread to make it stand out as much as possible.
- Last, I stacked all the layers on top of one another and glued them together to make one thick piece.
Here's the completed layout that I created for Let's Capture Our Memories, a fantastic online scrapbooking store. I used Crate Paper's Story Teller line.
Here is a close up of the scissors.
