~Happy Friday....Paper pleating/ruffling made easy **Video Tutorial**~

Good morning from a beautiful snowy morning in TN!
We waited all night and all morning but finally at 11am it began.
It is snowing and looks like it won't be stopping, in fact
they are sending hubby home early today!

I always get questions about paper pleating and making ruffles
with ribbon or paper on my layouts.
So I took time this morning to make a video tutorial on it!
Hope it makes it a little easier for you to do too!



I seem to use this technique almost daily!
It's so fun to use spritz or spray on the paper before ruffling as well,
it almost makes it look like fabric :)

OK I am off to bake today and play with the boys since they are not in school
for the crazy snow we are expecting! I love snow days :)
Have a great Friday!
~Thank you for stopping by~
