Card Class Projects, 9/12/09

Here are two projects we will be making for our card/craft class on Saturday Sept. 12th. I have one more to make and will post it soon.

The first project is a Halloween tag made with the shaving cream technique and the second project is a toilet or paper towel roll mini album.

You need to use regular shaving cream not the gel style for this tecnhique. This technique is very simple, a little messy and the marble affect is so cool.

The bottom paper is the marble effect that you get from the ink and shaving cream. The top is the finished project.

Here's a close up of the finished Halloween tags.

For the mini album the background on the tube sleeves were made with marbles; great effect. The tags I used a brayer with rubber bands for another cool effect. Topped off the album with lots of fiber and ribbon.

Each tube has a "joy" in my life. My husband John, our dog Ratso, our cars and my passion for belly dancing!

Start saving those toilet and paper towel tubes and create your own mini albums.
