Crepe Paper Tutorial - My Creative Scrapbook

Hello! I am here today with a fun idea for the March 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!
