I did however, spend some time scratching my head for the new Crafty Cardmakers and More challenge. The theme is FANCY FOLDS. You can create anything you like as long as it has some fancy folds on it!
I haven't really been card making of late, but I've got lots of fabric to hand so I settled on some fancy fabric folding ...
You then need to stitch it together (if you fold the fabric in half, both ways, and crease the folds a little bit, this will give you your stitching point. It doesn't matter how neat you stitch as the stitching will be covered later)
(Note: you want your main fabric to be on the inside)
you then turn the four corners inside out, tweaking a bit to get them looking even
and the front should look like this
finish off with a button, gem or brad in the middle. (I cut the 'legs' off a brad and hot glued it to the fabric)
Initially I was going to use it as an embellishment for a card but it's really a bit bulky for that, so I added a string to make a hanging ornament instead.
You can make them any size, and on the internet you can find quite a lot of folk have made them in Christmas fabric and they make lovely Christmas decorations.
The challenge is sponsored by The Stamping Boutique who are donating 4 digital images of your choice
