For the love of plaid !

Hi there, Marielle here today with a fun technique for you. I love, love ,love plaid paper and I thought it would be fun to make my own plaid design using the different stripes found on the papers of the Cupcake collection.


 You will need striped papers (of course), white cardstock ( I used a 6x6 piece) ,a paper trimmer and glue.

 Cut various widths of different colored strips of papers.


Glue them on your piece of cardstock weaving them as shown.

 until you are happy with the look of you plaid pattern paper !!



Then use it to make a fun little layout about a sweet little cupcake. (this little cutie is my niece !!)

This month theme was to use a song for inpiration...mine was Celebrate (from Madonna.)

 I made little banners using the rub on cupcakes.
Hope you'll give this technique a try on your next Upsy Daisy project.
Bye for now :)
Marielle
