What You Need

You Will Need:

  • Scraps of Paper – First Edition Wanderlust Paper Pad
  • Adhesive to Stick Strips On – Sticky Roll (Wildspider Designs)
  • 6 x 4 Cardbase – Julie Loves White Cards & Envelopes
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Sentiment – Craftworks Cards Foiled Sentiments Pad

Instructions:



  1. Choose 3 different papers and using a ruler and pencil draw and cut out strips 1cm wide. The length of my strips was the same length as the size of my paper pad which was 20cm. I cut 8 strips of each type of paper

  2. Add adhesive to your card base. I found it quicker to add adhesive to the whole of the card base then stick on your strips so I used Sticky Roll. Once the adhesive is on, add your first strip diagonally as shown.

  3. Add a further 2 strips as shown, making sure they are flush with the other. These will form the base of your pattern.
