|Cut a wavy edge in your strip of pattern paper. The scallop does not have to be perfect. I just started cutting. It is about 1 1/2" x 10".|
|Adhere it to the bottom edge of the fabric while overlapping the fabric a little. Once again, don't cover the open edge of your envelope.|
|Like this. |
(You can keep this as a pattern to use on later projects.)
|Now you use this pattern to cut out this shape out of fabric. If you take a piece of fabric and fold it in half, you will cut two pieces out at once. Use your other three fabrics and cut two flags out of each fabric.|
|Take each fabric flag and fold the top edge over a piece of twine and staple it. Do that with all the fabric flags and make two sets of three flags. Tie a knot in the twine at the ends. Adhere these to the top two corners of the cardstock.|
|Add your photos to the right side of the layout. They should overlap the scallop paper. I used two 4"x6' photos, but you could use a 5"x7" photo instead.|
Place your title at the bottom edge of the bottom photo.
|To finish it off, just add a journaling block on the left edge of the fabric. I chose a circle, but a square or rectangle would work just as well. Stop here if you want to keep your layout simple.|
|If not, you can add a few embellilshments to jazz it up. I placed a flower with a quote in the center on the photos, then placed little butterflies with jewel centers throughout the layout.|
|Here is another example- I started with a heart cut out of fabric, then added a fabric tie to the bottom of the layout. Also, the three tabs at the top left corner and top right corner are just rectangles cut from fabric, folded in half, and stapled to the background paper.|
Thanks so much for stopping by and God bless.
