Scallop Paper Lace Tutorials…

Jun 3, 2009

Oh am I ever so excit­ed to share these two tuto­ri­als with you. This post is long but I believe you will think it was worth the extra long read.

The Scal­lop Paper Lace (top) reminds me of the vin­tage paper lace I have seen online. Even though noth­ing can replace the love I have for vin­tage items this new dis­cov­ery sure does open up a lot of pos­si­bil­i­ties for my cre­ativ­i­ty. The Scal­lop Ric Rac Paper Lace (bot­tom) I acci­den­tal­ly made try­ing to fig­ure out how to make the scal­lop paper lace. I love it when things like this hap­pen.

These two styles of paper lace will be per­fect to accent my cards, tags, lay­outs and projects. You can ink or mist these too. And if you do so on card­stock you will have a  beau­ti­ful neg­a­tive image left behind to use for anoth­er project.

Oh the pos­si­bil­i­ties are tru­ly end­less!

I think these look cute on top of each oth­er too… just use some foam squares to attach them, that is as long as you use white card­stock or some­thing that will allow the foam square to blend in so they aren’t seen too much.
