TECHNIQUE LAYOUT
by Megan Klauer

I love how just folding a strip of paper can add such a great focal point to a layout, card or project. I used a few simple products to create just that.

You'll need:
2 strips of patterned paper {I used 1/2" x 12"}
circle punch {I used 2 5/16" by The Paper Studio}
Sticky Strip {by Stampin' Up!}
Photobucket

1} Punch circle from pattern paper {would work great to use a photo in the center too!} and cut paper strips...
Photobucket

2} Add Sticky Strip to the back of each paper strip & adhere circle to layout or project...
Photobucket

3} Start creating the "ruffle flower" by simply back folding the strip of paper as you continue around the circle using both strips of paper...

and all finished!

and here is how I used them on my layout...
