Here is my "Bargello" card:
Notice the pattern in the background of the card? Here are the steps to help you create your own!
Cut several 3/4" strips of Designer Paper. I cut a total of 7 strips using 3 different patterns (6 showing in the photo). I started and ended with the same pattern. The strips are 6" long.
Arrange and glue all of your strips on regular copy paper. This will keep them in place for Step 4.
Trim the copy paper so all edges are straight and even.
Using a Paper Trimmer, trim your strips along the edge that has all the designer papers lined up side by side. Cut the strips in different thicknesses, some a little larger than others.
Decide on a pattern for your background. You can use any of the following ones you see below:
Rick Rack Pattern:
Once you've decided what pattern to use for your background, glue the strips on another piece of copy paper.
Cut your background to the size you want. You can even use a die shape also and cut what you need. Complete your card as you desire!
