My name is Trish and I'm an admitted paper crafter wanna-be. Really. I have friends who absolutely are awesome and create the most amazing things. Cards, smash books, multi-media pages. I dabble here and there. I look in awe mostly.
What I do a lot of is sew. And sew. And sew. Maybe some of you sew too? Maybe some of my sewing can help you in your paper crafting. Here's how...
I am the mother of 3 girls. We wear a lot of ruffles and flowers and pink in this house. I adore making handmade flowers for my girls to wear on their sweaters or in their hair. And you know what? They would be an awesome addition to your paper crafting.
Here's a quick video tutorial on making your own rolled rosettes. To make them lay better on your pages, try making your fabric strips thinner, no more than 1/2" and twist the fabric. That should help you build your flower more flat so that it lays nice. I love to add buttons and other vintage jewelry findings to the top of my flowers. They take a wee bit of practice but after a few tries, they are really easy and you'll be completely addicted to making these for all kinds of things!
AND, Trish is very generously offering one Toucan Scraps Tutorials reader a free class registration for one of her on-line sewing classes.
