Bookpage Ruffle Tutorial
So I started with the list of materials. I used a scalloped circle sizzix die, old bookpages cut using that die, some smootch sprays and glimmer mists, and inks, a piece of sturdy thread, and of course (not pictured - a sewing machine.)
Then I spritzed the ruffles, crumpled them and uncrumpled them, then inked them and let them dry.
Then I layer the flowers in half (in groups of four) and fold them in half over the piece of string. Then when I have them folded over the string, I feed them through the sewing machine.
Here is the final product. Then I scrunched them up again to create the distressed look on the layout.
Hope this inspires you to try this technique.
