Sisters *Paper Doilies Techniques*

This is a layout which I've created to showcase various techniques using paper doilies for BoBunny's blog sometime ago. This layout also features the "Trail Mix" collection by BoBunny.

Here are some close-ups of this layout and keep scrolling down for the techniques on using paper doilies!

BoBunny does carries various sizes of paper doilies and they are so much fun and easy to work with. In the past, I've received some emails asking for more ideas using them besides the usual masking or making them into flowers. Actually there are tons of ways using them. This time, I'm going to share with you all a few simple techniques using them.

The first idea that popped up in my head is altering! You can easily alter these paper doilies! For this first idea, I've used a large doily.

Cut out the inner circle and you will get a ring with beautiful details to layer on your layout.

For the second idea, use the leftover of the inner circle which you've cut out from the earlier paper doily.

Cut out another layer of smaller circle from the inner circle piece and you will get another ring to design your layout with.

For this third idea, I've used a medium paper doily.

Cut out the inner circle but this time, the cut area is slightly different from the earlier paper doily. (Notice the edges of the cut out circle)

Use the inner cut out circle and also cut out another smaller circle from a scrap paper to use as a mask on this paper doily.

Use a sponge and ink to do the masking on the paper doily. This will create a journaling piece for your layout.

For the fourth idea, use what is leftover from the medium paper doilie 

Fold pleats on the paper doily ring ad this will create a smaller circle which you can use to layer under tags or create a circular badge with paper doily edges.You could also use this technique to create a paper doily framed circle photograph.

This last idea will be a very simple one. Just use a small paper doilie.

Cut the small paper doily into quarters and then, fold pleats with them. This will create a fan liked folded doily which you can insert among your cluster of flowers. You can ink or color them with mist before adding them to your projects.

Now go and have some paper doilies fun yourself!
