Lace Border out of Paper Doiley

I've used this technique in my recent guest designing projects for Scrapmagie using their February's Kit, Terem Palace.

Here are the steps to this technique.

1) You need a piece of paper doiley, some distress inks and a scissors for this technique.


2) Cut out the lace portion from the paper doiley and fold them into sections. (Just like if you're creating ruffles with ribbons)

3) Dab various different shades of distress ink on it. Use need to use some sponges or foams to do this.

4) Align them in a straight line under your photograph or your layers of papers.

Isn't this simple and adds some really awesome details to any projects? Try it!
