If you have been following along, making paper ruffles, you probably have already found some additional papers to use, and more ways to make and use paper ruffles on projects! Just in case you need a little nudge, here are another handful of ideas.
For those of you who want the short version, a brief summary is below the video.
More ideas regarding making your ruffles
- Use a variety of items to run down the center of the ruffle
- If you sew your ruffles, you may want to just leave off the center strip, although it is a great way to use up scraps.
- The thicker the paper, the more difficult it is to quickly pleat
- Tissue paper can make a softer, more scrunchy looking ruffle
- Cutting wider strips and folding in a more off-set fashion can add a lot of interest and dimension
A few more ideas for using paper ruffles
- Use a snippet of ruffle for a pull-tab element, in a single strip
- Fold a small section of ruffle in half for another look for a pull-tab
- Create your own cluster to use on a project. This is a wonderful way to use all kinds of scrap paper, and other bits of ephemera you already have!
