Hello crafty friends, Melinda here with you today! I am sharing a fun layout I created with the Paper House Let Freedom Ring Paper Crafting Kit and some fun PenBlades! For the next couple weeks we’ll be pairing our Paper House products with PenBlades so be sure to check out all the fun!
I designed my template and cut it out of Kraft Cardstock. Once that was cut out, I used my pencil to draw on the opposite side of the paper the pattern.
I then used my pen blade to cut out the layer. The pen blade worked like a charm. I used a self-healing mat underneath and it glided right along with no trouble.
I then used my Xyron Adhesive to adhere the paper to the back side of the template.
Here is a closer view of the template I cut out of Kraft Cardstock. You can see the various layers of the patterned paper I used to follow along the bottom side of the template.
I used several of the cardstock stickers from the collection to adorn this banner.
I combined a couple of the cardstock stickers for some more visual interest.
This terrific cardstock sticker of the USA was also part of the collection. I used some of the alphabet stickers to write my nephew and nieces names.
Here is the FREE template I created that I am sharing with everyone. It is sized at approximately 8.25 x 8.25 so it can be printed on a regular printer and then used with the pen blades. I am sharing the PDF and JPG files!
Be sure to stop back by each day as the rest of the designers showcase some amazing projects they have created with their Pen Blades and Paper House Products!
