Special Monthly Challenge – Paper Pleating

It’s our Special Monthly Challenge time again on Just Magnolia and this month Mina has done a wonderful tutorial for us on Paper Pleating.

As always, Simon Says Stamp is sponsoring our special monthly challenge to the tune of a fab $25 voucher for you to spend in their store, and Heidi even pays the shipping!!

I have used one of the soon to be released Wedding images – isn’t little Tilda just so cute as a flower girl (well that’s what I think she is lol).  I am still loving this old Karen Neuberger paper that I rediscovered a week or so ago (pity this is about the last of it).  And it goes without saying the yummilicious roses and asters are from Wild Orchid Crafts, blinged up with a spritz of Glimmer Mist (love this stuff – not that you’d notice lol)

I am struggling with trying to get decent photo’s – I ended up taking the card and camera to work with me in the hopes I would catch a ray of sunshine to get a half decent photo.  We got the sunshine and I was in a meeting, that’s just the story of my life lol.

The pearl pins are from the Hobby House as are the pearls.  I coloured the pins with a Copic marker and was thrilled when I got an almost perfect match to the pearls.  There are some gorgeous colour combinations in the pearls – if you haven’t seen them yet you’re missing out big time.

I hope you will give the paper pleating a whirl, I really enjoyed doing this technique and will certainly be using it a lot more.

Thanks for stopping by,

  2. Your card is beautiful Bev. I can see why you love these papers. I used to make lots of cards with paper pleating and somehow forgot about it! Thank you for the reminder.

  3. Bev, your card is really beautifull, but I am absolutely not into pleating. One of my best crafting-friends allways says that I am a double-lefthanded-origami-dyslexic....
