The paper towel card...*winks*


The-paper-towel-card

So the other day, after a mixed media session, I found some lovely patterns on my paper towel and thought to myself, "Such a pity to throw it away...maybe I should try to use it on a card or something..." *winks*


I cut the paper towel to size and used dry adhesive on the card base before gluing the paper towel to the card. The paper towel is a little delicate so you have to be careful when handling it to prevent tearing.


Then I added my fave Maya Road embellishments with a hot glue gun.


The paper towel looks like lovely patterned paper, right?


What do you think?

Absolutely LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEE this!!! A few years ago, I was at a crop at a friends house, and Dina Wakely was there too -- and she did this on her scrap pages -- used the paper towels that she had used for something else and were inked up! I always thought it was GENIUS! So very cool my friend -- you are on trend! LOVING it!!!!!!!!!!!!

omgosh, you are so creative! I think this is a genius idea! So different and adds a really cool texture to the card base. Loving all those misted spots. And then of course you finished this perfectly with all your fun touches! Awesome!

Love it! We've put colorful paper towels directly on our fridge or art wall as decoration, but never made a card from them. Good idea!
