A pleating good time...



Hey there!! This is Lisa today!

I have a fun and simple layout to share with you all today. Pleats are nothing new, but they are a fun way to dress up an other wise flat layout! I created this layout using the awesome Homespun Kit!



I used a scoring board to create my pleats.



First I adhered my pictures to the middle of the paper and then I scored my paper at a 1/4" and then another 1/4" and then 1/2" and then a 1/4" and then a 1/2" and then a 1/4" until I read the end of the paper. I did this on the top and the bottom of the pictures.


Then I folded the pleats at the top of the page to go towards to the bottom of the page (towards the pictures). And then I folded the ones on the bottom of the page to go towards the top of the page (towards the pictures).


Then I adhered it to the middle of the layout and then went kind of crazy with the sewing machine to stitch down the pleats! 


I added my title and went even more crazy with the sewing machine!! I just had fun with the sewing machine!!



Happy Tuesday!!
