030415 CKC March Tutorial
Well, this month I only had a few simple forgeries.
It's always worth sharing, though, as counterfeiting is not a mystical magical skill!
It's usually just seeing an element of the kit & thinking -
Hey! I have those (such-and-such) that I could (do such-and-such to) and it would look just like that.
Like this sheet of kraft frames from Jillibean Soup...
I want them to look like these in the kit, also from Jillibean Soup.
(hmm... hadn't realized that until this post...)
Voila! a simple woodgrain stamp transforms those plain-Jane frames.
Now I have squirreled away this little roll of cork for many years.
(I think the only time I have used it is for forgeries, lol!)
I simply cut a strip the same width as the ruler to make it easy.
Cut two pieces, cut the corners & punched the hole.
These cork tags from the custom items in the kit are what I'm trying for.
But I'm wanting something a little more interesting.
A little stitching makes them MINE!
Fair warning, though. Cork IS tough, but be careful close to the edge.
Now take a look at this month's inspiration kit shown here:
and choose a favorite element to forge!
And don't forget to post your creations to the Monthly Link-Up tab on the CKC blog.
