How this one didn't turn into a shaker

|

I'm keeping things simple this week with my favourite stitched dies and square cards. Not that I have much to work with at the moment after a recent destash. It's fair to say that I'm addicted to eBay selling! On my wish list of must have craft items are a couple of stitched dies. I can't imagine crafting without them anymore but they're so expensive that I always tell myself: "Next time!"

I was looking for something spring-themed in my stash when I discovered a floral paper pad from Making Cards. This design features Telescopic Apertures and Paper Pleating and both focus on the papers (and coloured card). I had wanted to turn this into a shaker but it has already got six layers of card. The inner circles are two layers each. I really should have used one layer instead, then do the half pleated circle and stick it onto acetate. I had the perfect shaker mix to go with the colours, but maybe another time...



















This is another idea of how to make use of your free magazine papers. I'm sure that many of you collect them, too, and wonder what to do with them. If you're working with the thin bonus papers from inside the magazine, use them in combination with adhesive sheets. I found that glue and double-sided tape only show underneath.

  1. Lovely card. I will have to try the telescopic apertures, they are very effective.
    Thanks for the tip about the papers. I think the free papers make up the bulk of my stash!
