Tuesday Technique - Pink Paislee

Yesteday was my turn to post on the Pink Paislee blog. Tuesday is a day to focus on titles, tips or techniques. I chose the technique of paper pleating. The ribbon pleats from Pink Paislee's last release really inspired me. I just love those things! Using paper is perfect for achieving the look if you don't have any on hand. So, I made a set of cards to show a couple of examples on how to use this technique on a project.

For my first card, I used an accordian pleat along the bottom edge.

I added a little decorative stitching to attach it to the card (and to pretty it up a bit).

For the next card, I wanted to add a little texture to the sun element.

I used a box pleat and added some stitching to attach it to the card also.

You can find out more about the products used here. Make sure to check out more work by the rest of the design team too. You will not be disappointed. ;)

That's it for me today. Thanks so much for stopping by!
