Here are the details of the challenge:
Create a project showcasing ruffles!
Whether it is ribbon, lace, paper, fabric, stamped images or ruffled embellishments....get all "ruffled up" and show us what you can create, using the photo above for inspiration!
I found an awesome video by Julie DiMatteo on how to create a paper lollie with a punched trim. you can find it by clicking HERE. Just a tip, I started with a 2" x 12" piece of Red Glimmer Paper for the lollie and a 1- 3/4" punched circle for the back of the lollie to hold it together. (Those are a little different then the measurements in the video.) Julie's tip in the video to use a hot glue gun is REALLY helpful. I tried liquid glue at first but couldn't get it to hold. The Glimmer Paper is super-thick, so the hot glue gun made it SO much easier to hold in place.
Here is the really FUN part about my card...It's also an ornament. That ruffled, layered lollie is designed to be removed to hang on the recipient's tree. I simply adhered it to the card with a spot of velcro. Then it can easily be removed without damaging the card or the ornament. You can't even see the velcro while it's hanging on the tree, either. Easy peasy! The Glimmer Paper really sparkles in the lights on the tree, too. Love that! :)
Here is a quick shot of the inside of the card and I also listed all of the supplies I used at the end of the post:
