Using Crepe Paper as an Embellishment by Jodi Baune

Hello everyone! Today My Creative Scrapbook Design Team member Jodi Baune is here with a tutorial using the fun crepe paper included in our April Creative kit. 

Here's Jodi...

Hello! I am here today with a fun idea for the April Creative Kit from My Creative Scrapbook. I love that Pam added the crepe paper to the kit! It really added some fun texture to my layouts.

My first idea was to gather it and use it for a border. First I folded it in half.

Next choosing a scallop punch, I was able to keep it folded in half and punch through both layers at the same time.

Now, using the folded crease as my guide, I wove a slip stitch down the center.

Lastly, gently gather the paper to the fullness of your liking.

I added it to my layout, then topped the stitching with the cute polka dot ribbon!

I also used the same process to create the border on my hat, folding the portion back in half and adhering it to the chipboard hat.

I hope you enjoyed today's tip!
I would love if you shared your version with me!
Thanks for stopping by!
