WENDY'S WORKSHOP MAY 2016








WOODCHIP BOOK PROJECT TUT


I'm using a 6x6 inch blank tabbed chipboard book
that has 5 pages which is equal to 10 sides to decorate.
Firstly, number the pages on each side so you can
identify them for the pages and in what order they will be put back together.

Print off all the pages, each page is numbered so before you trim them down
number them on the back.
Trim to the edges of each printed page.
The 2 front and 2 back pages are smaller in width to the others, this is because the others have tabs on them making them overall wider.


Using a Pritt Stick, smother the chipboard (as shown above)
Attach the paper pressing it firmly down taking extra effort at the edges.


Leave to dry and move onto the alternative pages
i.e do pages in this order 1,3,5 This gives each single page time to dry.

Once you've covered number 5, trim off any excess paper from page 1 and attach paper number 2, leave to dry and move onto page 4 etc.


Again, once dry trim off any paper excess


I like to ink first around the edges


and then sand using an emery board, this makes for a shabbier look.


and here's the page all done.






2 ON 1 CARD TUT

Print off the worksheets. Cut down the middle of worksheet named
FLORAL EDGES CARD (as above)
Trim off any white excess at the sides making sure each side is the same width.


like so


Using edger dies (I'm using Spellbinders ones)
lay them as shown above (this will apply to both pieces)
and I'm cutting the sentiment and backing with circle dies,


like so


Trim off some of the excess white area from the green pieces


For the smallest if the 2 pieces score at 2.5cm


and the longer piece at 2cm


Here's my pieces scored & crease and ready to be put together
(you may find that you have to trim a little more from the green frilly piece when you come to put them together) 


Apply some foam pads and attach the pattern frilly to the green frilly
 (as above) 


Next trim down your frilly 8x8 inch base card to 14.30cm wide x 19.5cm high
and create it using the TIED TENT TECHNIQUE


Trim the green trellis paper to 14.5cm wide x 19.5cm high
and attach the frilly top and bottom by folding over to the back (as above)


Score in half the back card, close and trim to 14cm wide x 19cm  high


I like to make up my inserts by folding them in half, mark where the edge of the pattern is on the top, bottom and middle and trim, I then fold back to the normal way and mark and trim to fir inside the card.


Once the insert has been inserted, attach the card to the back
of the main card (as above) 


I like to add silicone to the bottom frilly bit so it will protrude slightly.
When dry, attach to the front of the main base card and decorate as you wish.


This is the front


and this is the back
