I have been wanting to try this technique for a looooonnnng time....it's called Bargello and it's super easy to do and not just for needle arts. I used the new Designer Series Paper from the Summer Mini called Travel Journal (pg.23, Summer Mini catalog) but you can use any paper that has stripes. A technique article in the last Stampin' Success (a monthly Magazine for Demonstrators) featured it, just one of the many perks of being a SU! Demonstrator. I cut the paper in 1/2" strips off of each side to make the wave and then matched up the stripe when I adhered it to the card stock. Looks kinda like a tie don't cha think??? This stamp set Very Thankful is the Ronald McDonald set for the 2009-10 IB&C and will be retiring at the end of the month. To see all of the sets that are leaving click on the Stampin' Up! button on the left and check under promotions.
