      I am posting this for Irene while she is away on Holiday!!

      Steps to create a pleated frame for your photograph.

       

      1) Cut out some 1 strips from the patte paper. Use a deco scissors to cut a small scallop edge on one of its edges. The length of the strips will depends on the below::

       

      ~ how big is the diameter of the circle photograph

      ~ how tight or close together the pleats are

       

      (In my sample, I've had a 5.5 diameter photograph and I used 3 x 12 strips) 

       

      2) After cutting out the strips, ink its edges with some distress ink to cover the white edges.

       

      3) Then, start to fold pleats on the strips. Each pleat should have 1/2 gap in between them. If you want closer pleats, just have smaller gaps in between them.

       

      4) Put some tape adhesives behind the photograph around its edges and attach the pleated strips to it.

       

      5) To further secure the pleats to the photograph, stitch along the edges of the photograph.

       

      That's it. Now you have your pleated frame for your circle photograph. 🙂

                Thanks, I want to try this too & thinking if you cut larger strips you could layer the 2.

                  Great idea! I think this would really compliment my Timmy rosette die that I don't use nearly enough.

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."

                          Cool!!!! Love this effect!!! (I wonder how it would work with an edge punch; I don't own deco scissors.?)

                              I was wondering how that was done. I think maybe the TH rosette die would work for making the strips. Or the Cricut Rosette cartridge, but I don't have that one…yet:)

                                I have a Score it board.That would make it easy. It is the Martha Stewart one and I usually use it to score cards.

                                  I think you could score a large strip then after it is scored, you cut the strips thinner.
