Let's face it: we all make mistakes. Only with our paper crafting, mind you, but we do it! The best thing is that it's usually easy to fix, and there's no need to toss things out. There are two golden rules to follow:
- Turn it over. Yup - card stock has two sides. Turn it over & stamp again. If that doesn't work, proceed to #2.
- Cover it up! We really don't need an excuse to embellish, but this is a good one!
Here's an example: I was making a medallion ornament for my Halloween tree (which I'll be sharing soon!). See my Accordion Flower tutorial for instructions on how to make these medallion ornaments (same concept as the flowers - just larger!). See the 'smushed' part? I purposely put it at the top so that I could . . . .
add a bow & cover it up! No more mistake!
Hope you enjoy today's helpful hint!
