I used my crimper!!

Pin It


I don't use my crimper enough!!

I saw a card at my fabulous LSS that had a little lantern on it, here's my take!

I cut a circle using my MS circle cutter, cut off equal parts from the top and bottom and crimped!

The hanger is wire and I used black satin ribbon for the tassel.

Recipe:
Stamps ~ Artfully Asian
Paper ~ Apricot Appeal, Pumpkin Pie, white
Ink ~ Black, Pumbkin Pie, SU Markers, Always Artichoke, Apricot Appeal
Accessories ~ wire, black satin ribbon, crimper, dimensionals, clear spica

Oh my crimper is covered in dust. What a CLEVER way to use it! I gotta drag it back out and see what fun it can make again :)

This is great! I love the texture that the crimper adds... I suppose I will have to break down and get a new one, seeing how my 4th kid named "wasn't me" and who is invisible broke mine.
The card is awesome!
