Living in a Material World


This week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge is called "Ribbon or Fabric" Clean and Simple. Of course this is all up to YOUR interpretation! I didn't have any fabric to use, so....

Scallop Edge Border punch is the star of this show! I made my scalloped paper look like fabric ruffles by cutting them into narrow strips and "aging" them by crinkling them upward after applying. I thought adding a button with a cording tie might give a fabric feel as well. What will YOU do when you play along? Don't forget, there is Blog Candy at stake here!!
