Altered cardboard photo tutorial

Hi folks! Donna here sharing with you a photo tutorial of an altered cardboard I recently made incorporating some Washi tapes, which is our theme challenge for the month.

So here we go...

1. Cut 2 5x5 cardboard (got mine from a bed sheet filler - recycle baby, recycle!)

2. Paint white acrylic. You can paint just the edges but I like mine all over.

 3. Trace and cut pattern paper of your choice.

 4. I used deco scissors to trim off a bit of the edges.
 5. Cut and place a doily as seen in the image
 6. Spray some glimmer mist. Cut holes where you'll insert the ribbons/trims/twine later. I also secured the corners with some staple wires.
 7. Let the fun begin! Start to decorate your cardboards with anything you like. I started with some Washi tapes....
Tied some ribbons and twines....
 deco stickers... fun!
A colorful mat for my cardboard frames, with washi tapes in the middle...
adhere the finished cardboard frames as seen in the image...
the finished project...
