Paper weaving is so awesome! I haven't done this technique for a while, so I thought I'd give it a go. I made a video tutorial with some tips on how to get weaving pretty straight. Here's a link to the blog with the video: http://swirlydoos.blogspot.com/2013/10/paper-weaving-tutorial.html
Here's the layout I made with the paper weaving:
So, let's share! Have you ever done any paper weaving on a layout? Do you have any tips on how to do it? Post your projects and tips here!October 19, 2013 at 3:24 pm #222753
I like paper weaving and can't believe I haven't done it more often. On this one I used paper and the Tim Holtz film strip ribbon

I LOVE that, Sherri! What a fabulous idea to use the film strip ribbon. I hoard that, and I have three rolls. You have inspired me to use it!October 19, 2013 at 3:57 pm #222755October 19, 2013 at 5:30 pm #222756
Rae, Sherri, not only a cool technique, but those layouts are gorgeous!!!!!
Rae, you make it look so easy in you video. The one time I tried it was a study in frustration. You've made me want to do it again!October 19, 2013 at 5:41 pm #222757October 19, 2013 at 5:49 pm #222758
I'm pretty sure that I did it bass akwards, gluing or taping the tops of the lengthwise strips onto my paper and then weaving all of the horizontal ones. Or something. Anyway, I wasn't happy with the results. And now I see why.October 20, 2013 at 8:12 pm #222759October 21, 2013 at 2:44 pm #222760
I love this technique! Looks easy enough!
"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."October 22, 2013 at 3:08 am #222752
I did one too, a long time ago. Pain in the ass, but worth it!
