FAUX LEATHER JOURNAL SWAP - MAIL DATE JANUARY 31, 2018

on Wed Jul 19, 2017 10:44 pm
Check out the TUTORIALS to see how to create Faux leather with Kraft cardstock and Glycerin and an Embossing folder !

This will be sooooo exciting !!




You will make a 5x7, or 6x8  Faux Leather Journal and trade with your partner.  You will mail directly to her.

Try to use your partner's favorite colors, and maybe an embossing folder that will reflect her passions !  If you need help with an embossing folder, please ask me.  

I hope that many of you will try this fun technique !!  It is not difficult !!  You will find it habit-forming  !

Sign ups begin NOW !!

This is the one I did this past week. Have to add mod podge and it is done. In my opinion, it is better to work with heavy Kraft card stock if you can find it.

I have some VERY HEAVY KRAFT cardstock. It is made by the WORLDWIN Company. It is almost as thick as chipboard.
The Next Best in KAISERCRAFT 260 gsm cardstock.
If you cannot find any in a local store, I will sell it to our swap members at my cost. Just let me know.

Ladies ... Did you know that you can use this Faux leather to make other things like Hair ornaments and bracelets etc.. Be sure to use the extra thick Kraft paper . It can handle holes being punched in it but some of the regular Kraft paper will not hold up.
