Hello! I would like to start by saying thank you for all your wonderful feedback about Seasonal Delights! I hope you will share pictures of the projects and recipes you make. Also, the puppy tips were very helpful. Daisy is doing really well and not getting into too much trouble since we aren't letting her out of our sight. :0) I will post an update and pictures over the weekend.
I'm really excited about this week's card making project. My friend Cathy told me all about a new technique and I made several cards last night in about 20 minutes. We won't be using any scrapbook paper today.
Instead, get out all your paper napkins! You can also use gift-wrap tissue or paper guest towels.
You will also need:
-Saran wrap (the cheapest brand will be the thinnest and works best)
-Iron and ironing board
Take a blank card and cut a piece of saran wrap just a bit larger than your card. Lay saran wrap on top of card. I would do this on the ironing board, so you don't have to move it later.
Take a napkin and cut it just a big larger than the saran wrap. Be sure to remove all the "plies" or layers or it won't work properly. Most napkins have two plies but some have 3 or 4.
Lay the napkin right side up on top of saran wrap.
Take one of the plies and put that over the card sandwich . This will protect your iron from getting glue on it.
Use a dry iron (no steam) with it set on a 5 or 6. I used the "silk" setting and with an up and down motion press the iron down for 6-8 seconds all over the card. You are literally melting the saran wrap which makes the glue.
Gently lift off the protective layer, being careful because it will be hot.
Trim the edges with scissors. If you see a spot that didn't adhere correctly, take a toothpick with a tiny amount of glue and put it under the lifted area.
Here is another card I made.
I added a decorated cardstock square.
And lastly, a summer seashell card with a small bow.
I hope you enjoyed the project and let me know if you make some too!
