Now, lets get this party started. Case CSI #56 is officially open.
This week, we were asked to share a little tutorial on the process of doing our layouts.
So here to share how I went about making the little vellum pocket that you see on the bottom right hand corner. For someone like me who does not have a sewing machine, making a vellum pocket can still be feasibly done.
Cut down a vellum sheet and a piece of patterned paper to the same size. If you do not have vellum, you can also recyle any of your clear backings that come with your embellishments.
Use a very strong double sided tape and taped on all four corners of the patterned paper.
Now the fun begins. Simply use your punches to punch out a variety of coloured confetti and placed them in the center of your patterned paper. Do remember to be careful and ensure that the confettis do not touch the sticky tape.
Place the vellum over the patterned paper and carefully align them together. There you have it, a simple nice vellum pocket. The good thing about using vellum is that it is semi transparent so your tapes wont be seen clearly. (:
Step 5 (additional step) :
If you are still conscious about the tape showing, simply add a border over the vellum sheet and your pocket is completed.
For a chance to win a Pink Paislee's Portfolio 12x12 Collection Pack (21 papers), simply leave a comment on my blog.
I would close the comments box on 29th January (Tuesday) and winners will be announced in our Full Disclosure (Announcements) Forum the following week.This giveaway is open to both local and international scrappers so not to worry, all are welcome.
