Paper Weaving and Denim Die Cuts...

I've been wanting to try some paper weaving ever since I saw this challenge over on the Create blog.  The weaving was easy, it was harder to decide which patterns and colours would work together. 


I decided on a grey/blue colour palette for a 'manly' look.  Rummaged through my Pink Petticoat scrap box, cut various patterned papers into 1cm wide strips and played around until it looked right, another great scap buster!


For the tag I die cut some denim!  I find these iron-on patches work really well in a die cutting machine because they have a heat seal backing that makes them easier to cut than regular denim.

  1. Wow! This weaving looks fab and I think the blues and greys work really well.
    Love the denim die cuts. I've never put material through my machine - I wonder if hubby would notice a few 'tag' holes in the bttom of his jeans??

  7. This is fab Vicky - love the paper weaving. It's ages since I did any - we did some at a class but cut the paper into wavy strips - it gives a lovely effect!
