I love hoarding my designer paper that has images on it rather than just patterns. I decided that at least once a month I have to make a project that uses some of that paper, and today is it for July! The paper is the Mariposa Stack from DCWV. I chose the accordian fan pattern first, and then found a contrasting pattern for the background second. 
The fan was made by cutting a piece of the paper 8 X 2 inches. I used my Scor-Buddy to score every 1/4 inch. When I got to the end, I just turned it around to complete the scoring.
I held the fan in place with 1/4 inch Scor-Tape. I added some thin rub-on letters to the bird cage part of the designer paper for a sentiment ("thinking of you"). I adhered the fan, button, and Ivory Box Pleated Ribbon with 1/4 inch Scor-Tape as well. I added a bit of  Light Green Curly Sparkling Trim to the button.

Thanks for taking a peek today, and be sure to join our blog hop tomorrow!

  10. What an interesting ribbon the Ivory Box Pleated Ribbon made as a trim! And who knew that playing with paper, making fans as kids would one day pay off as a card embellishment?
