DCWV Fabric Paper  Blog Post by Kelly Klapstein

Hello Canadian Scrapbookers!  I’m excited to share with you a card making tutorial using the wonderful DCWV Fabric Paper. If you’re not familiar with this product, then you will want to get your crafty hands on some.  It has self-adhesive backing, which makes designing a breeze….no adhesive required!


Here is the card I created using only a piece of Bazzill white cardstock, a Tim Holtz vintage button and DCWV Fabric Paper…

Step-by-Step Tutorial

1. Cover the front of your card with Fabric Paper.  Then cut two ½” strips of cardstock the same width as your card.  Also cut some 1” strips of Fabric Paper.

2. Pull off the adhesive backing while you press it onto the strip of cardstock, folding and pleating the Fabric paper along its length.

3. This is the completed pleated strip.

4. You will need 2 pleated strips for this card.

5. Adhere them to the card using two ¼” cream Fabric Paper strips.

6. To make the pleated Fabric Paper flower, cut a 1” circle from scrap paper or cardstock.

7. Pleat the Fabric Paper around the circle as shown.  Remember it has adhesive backing so it will stick to the paper circle base easily.


8. Here is a closer view of the pleating in progress.

9. This is the finished flower.

10. Just add a button.  I adhered a Tim Holtz vintage button that contrasted with the colour of my flower.

11. Then I adhered my flower to my card.

Here is the layout that I created for the Spring 2012 issue of Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine that features DCWV fabulous fabric paper!

  4. I think everything said was very logical. But, what about this? what if you added a little information? I ain’t suggesting your information isn’t solid., but suppose you added a title that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean Canadian Scrapbooker Backstage Pass by Jackie Ludlage » Blog Archive » Tuesday with the Team – by Kelly Klapstein is kinda boring. You ought to glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create article titles to grab viewers to click. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab people excited about everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it could make your website a little livelier.
