Doily Tutorial

blogged by me domestic goddess On 5/27/2011 08:25:00 PM
So here is how I make a paper doily, maybe not the "right" way, but its the way that works for me, LOL

You will need:

1 sheet of 12" x 12" paper ( I used Nikki Sivils Its Your day)
Circle cutter or something round to trace round
Decorative edge punch

  • Firstly choose your sheet of 12" x 12" paper

  • Cut a circle the size you want. I cut a 2.5" diameter 
  • Now punch out about 3 - 4 decorative edge strips

  • Lightly scrunch the strips, and if you want you can lightly spritz with water to make the strips more pliable

  • Ink the edges if you wish of your circle and strips
  • Now start pleating the strips and adhere with glue onto the wrong side of your circle

  • Keep going until you have completed your circle.

  • Turn over and admire your doily work!
  • Add to your layout

Easy isn't it!
