The challenge over at The Craft Barn this week is to use paper tape, either bought or homemade. For my easel calendar this week I chose to make some lace paper tape using my edge punches. One has flowers and the other linked arches. I cut strips of paper about 1/4" wider than the punches and then punched along both sides. In the end I cut down the middle and used tape with only one side punched. I sprayed dark copper paint over a stencil to create a pattern on the base card and the top sheet of the notepad. The base of the upright panel is corrugated cardboard with one layer removed to expose the ribs and then painted with gesso and a light spray of copper paint over the same stencil. Lace and pearls decorate the edges.
Thank you once again for all your wonderful comments about my calendar last week.
