Incorporating Fabric as Texture in your Paper creations
Welcome back subscribers of Paper and Pixels! I’m thrilled to be able to share with you another project that uses the same technique outlined in this most recent edition. It’s also good to be back this year sharing with all of you again!
I’ve been experimenting with Stampin’ UP!’s newest product in the Occasions Mini Catalog, the Labels Framelits, as well as the Designer Series Fabric line, Flirtatious. I enjoy trying new ideas and that is how I came to make this cute little box! You may think that the box is covered in paper, but it is actually cardstock covered in fabric! I wasn’t sure if the Framelit would cut through fabric, yet it cut through beautifully!
A quick tip: Cut through the fabric side first when using Framelits. The Big Shot and dies make working with fabric and paper a breeze! The Stampinin’ Up! Paper cutter also works nice when cutting the cardstock already adhered to the fabric! Its wonderful when your tools work together nicely, isn’t it?
If you haven’t tried working with Stampin’ UP!’s fabric and papers yet, this is a FABULOUS way to get started! I love how touchable this project is and it is sure to elicit a WOW from your customers or recipients! I have to say it is more beautiful in person!!! Yeah, don’t you love it when a project comes together?!
All the beautiful fabric, paper, ink and embellishments can be purchased through my online store or directly through me! During Stampin’ UP!’s Sale-a-bration event (ends March 31) you can get the lovely Flirtatious Fabric for FREE with a minimum $50 product order, plus I’ll send directions for completing this box and the lovely embellishments when your Sale-a-bration order ships!!!
Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy!
The technique used for covering cardstock with fabric can be found in the current edition of Paper and Pixels along with additional ideas.
