Belli Challenge #46 - wrapping paper
This week's Belli Challenge is to use wrapping paper on your cards or projects. This is actually easier than you might think. Just think of wrapping paper as designer paper. It makes great backgrounds for your cards. You can see I did three different versions of cards using the same wrapping paper above.
Some little tips for you:
1 - it is much easier to die cut wrapping paper than it is to cut straight lines with a rotary cutter.
2 - adhere your wrapping paper with a tape roller (like an ATG gun or mono adhesive). I found that when I used a liquid glue, you can see the lines of the glue through the thin paper.
3 - don't be afraid to experiment with wrapping paper. :-)
Pull out your wrapping paper and make your own cards or projects. If you upload to SCS or PCP, please use keyword CBC46 so we can look at your artwork. For more inspiration, check out what the rest of the Belli Girls have created:
