Teeny Tiny Wishes Mother's Day Weaving Technique Card

I am not sure if I have done a woven card front or not.  It sort of rings a bell but if I have, I don't think it was with this many strips. I found this card made by Angie at Too Cool Stamping.   I thought it would be fun to give it a try.  And yes, it was fun!

I used the same colors as she did.  The only thing I changed was the type of butterfly and the words.  Other than that it's pretty much the same.

The base of the card is Lost Lagoon.  The next layer is Hello Honey.  Then Whisper White was added to the top.  There's a strip of Sahara Sand card stock on the left.  Then the weaving was constructed from 3-1/4" x 3/4" strips of decorative paper.  This paper is from the little Moonlight paper stack.  I love those little stacks.  You get a lot of variety for the money.

You just weave the pieces together.  I did start with a square of scrap in the center so I could have something to stick the first strip on to and then work outward from there.  It's very simple to do and so fun!  What a cute way to get 6 pieces of decorative paper to pull together to make a fun focal piece! 

Give this technique a try, I think you will find it fun and simple too!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
