Pleated Border Video Tutorial

Love You

Love You CU

S4-239 Classic Scalloped Border Petite

Today’s video is going to show you how to take Spellbinders™ Borderabilities® and American Crafts fabric-backed paper to create this oh, so shabby chic, pleated border.

Now, let me apologize straight off for the video. I honestly should have re-done it, but it was so funny, I figured, why not let you all see how things *really* go in my world?! My cat wakes up from his nap, much to my surprise, because he was under my feet! And he bumps the camera out of alignment and joins in the project making. Hopefully you can still see how to create the border while laughing in the process! :)

Here is a direct link to the video for those that need it: PLEATED BORDER

And for some questions that have been asked. I love the questions! I love helping, so please, ask away! My email is in the upper right, under my photo.

  1. Can I use Spellbinders dies in other machines? Yes! Spellbinders dies are universal! I cannot promise you can cut all the materials (such as cork, fabric, etc.) with other machines, though.For a complete list of all the compatibilities and so much more information, click HERE for the Spellbinders website.
  2. Isn’t there removable tape I can use to hold my dies in place? Yep! Scotch makes a great removable tape. I wanted to point out that you can use whatever you have on hand. Mine is in storage, in an undisclosed location. (I cannot wait to move into our new house!)

There is still more to come this week, including two more videos! Thursday will be about creating card and envelope edges and Friday will be about using the two-cut edge Borderabilities, of course with another cool border technique! Hope you are having fun! thanks for stopping by!
