Using Acetate!!!!

Morning everyone,

Myself and the rest of the Funkyhand design team have been playing with the soon to be released Wedding paper collections and I have to say I never been so inspired by such a fantastic collection.  Good job Anice

I decided to have a go with a piece of crafting material that I've never really tried - Acetate.  I've had some for a few years now and it's the printable type so I decided to challenge myself - argh scarey. 

What was I worrying about, it is so versatile and it was great to venture out of my comfort zone for a change so here's my card with an acetate bubble:
Here's what I printed out and gathered together:
2 sheets were printed out - 1 sheet of acetate with a backing paper printed onto it and a 2nd sheet of paper.
I cut out a section of acetate and scored it on both sides, enough so that it'll wrap around a pice of card and attach with very strong tape. 

Then put the card together.
It's good to try a new technique or different materials. Hey if I can do it - anyone can!

I'd love to see what you make with any Funkyhand product so we can pop and leave you a comment. So don't be shy and pop over to Get funky and craft and join in. You can also pop onto our Facebook page and post your pics too.


Have a super day 

Hugs Debbie x
