A few weeks ago we were at DH’s church for a meeting and brunch. The children had made woven paper placemats using this method I remember from my childhood, lo those many years ago. It’s a simple as creating slits in the base card stock (made easier with our Stampin’ Trimmer) and weaving strips over and under. Their creations were charming because they were not at all straight, so I tried to re-create that casual look here.
This is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge #122; click the sketch at right to go to the blog post for this challenge.
If you’re curious about the sudden participation in these challenges, the last night of Leadership in Houston, my roommates and I each set some goals for our business and craft. This was one: to participate in (create and post) two Freshly Made Sketches challenges each month. I recommend this kind of goal if you want to be positively catapulted into action! I’ve done lots of stamping since I’ve been home and made myself try some new products and ideas. Very fun!
I’m saving this card for camp in … ready for it? … March. At least, that’s the plan, so I’ll save the recipe for then.
Meanwhile, try that paper weaving!!!
