Paper Craft For Scrapbook Pages: Lively Layered Strips
Watch the Video Tutorial:
Read the Step-by-Step Guide Below:
First, we need a plain 12 x 12 cardstock and a circular-shaped item to use as a pattern for our cutout.
What I actually used as my circle template is a plate! It's a simple technique that you too can use if you don't have a circular ruler (yes, they exist!).
Then I used a craft knife to trace around the plate to create a negative circle as seen below.
Wait! Now That You Have A Theme For Your Page, Then You'll Need to Start Working On Your Layout...Let Me Show You...
After you've cut your own circle, let's cut out some paper strips.
Cut about one and a half-inch of paper strips lengthwise. Cut until you have enough paper strips to cover your circle.
I've drawn a little mark on my white paper just so I can see where I should begin gluing my strips and where it should end.
Once that's done, let's stick our strips down to the white paper. I used a paintbrush to spread the wet glue, but you can also use a glue tape which is easier.
Now, I've stuck them all down! I was planning on ruffling the strips but I thought they looked quite nice smooth like that. You can choose to ruffle yours if you want!
