- To create a custom bandana paper, stamp paisley images onto red textured cardstock and color in parts of the pattern with Tuxedo Black and Rambunctious Red.
- Once complete, highlight the design using liquid applique. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions on the tube and let dry fully before carefully heating with a heat gun. Take care not to scorch the project or “overcook” the applique. Please be sure to follow the directions and heed any warnings provided by the heat gun manufacturer.
- Outline the bandana piece with the Tuxedo Black for effect. Measure out about an inch on the bottom border to create a fringe. Sketch vertical lines in Rambunctious Red and Tuxedo Black to emulate a fringe look. Once done drawing the fringe, carefully use craft scissors to actually cut the fringe across the bottom border.
- Using a ruler, mark the top border of the bandana piece at ½ inch intervals. Use the cropadile or eyelet setting tools, create holes and set eyelets across the entire top border. Layer the finished bandana border onto a piece of green cardstock and then again over a coordinating decorative background Layer your prepared piece over the textured faux leather looking decorative paper.
- Glue photos to your layout.
- Arrange feather above the center image.
- Using a scrap piece of paper, carefully cut out a star shape and cover it with aluminum foil. Using Tuxedo Black and Rambunctious Red, decorate the star and glue it over the feathers.
