helping you weave your magic

This is a fun card of woven card into card.
Made using cricut design studio and alota rubber stamps
Made using sure cuts a lot and Stamp used is Alota rubber stamps
if you have design studio and george cartridges HERE IS THE PATTERN
if you have sure cuts a lot HERE IS THE PATTERN

This is what is cut out

there is an extra circle frame it is the inside one that you don't use

the smaller circle gets image (mine has no image as yet)
on it and then mounted on the bigger solid circle

and the small tab gets words stamped on it them mounted on the bigger tab

fold the card in half

The ring circle you cut through one edge

so one side is now open

on the inside of the card out a tiny piece of double sided tape
at the bottom of the slits

From the front thread one of the ends of the frame in the slit next to the tape
and attach (only so it fits half way between two slits)

this is how it will look on the top

Now you start weaving in and out each slit taking your time as it is
paper or card that you are weaving so it will crease or even tear easy

making sure you don't twist the frame
continue weaving all way round

when you get to the last on it goes in and will then be stuck to the
tape that you started

Cut a 3/8 inch strip of the frame colour then 1/4 inch of the main card
and layer

thread through the tab

move into the position that you want it at and put tap
across the back of strip with tab on it

and attach to your card and trim away excess

Now you have your card

and even the inside looks interesting

OK now this can be woven with ribbon but ribbon going around the circle
BUT will not sit as neat as paper or card cut to the shape does

Susan love you stuff. You got me hooked on the weave cards.
Only thing is I make the basic card and let my sister do the rest.
She loves them also and can't do the weave part. And I lost interest quickly. lol

Susan...Thanks much for all your inspiration, sharing of ideas, great tips and lessons. You are so talented, but even moreso you are such a wonderful good-hearted person to share your talents with everyone - mainly those like me to whom this SCAL and DS are a new experience. After spending days and days reading everything on your site, I feel like you're my friend who lives next door, instead of across the globe. If I can figure out how to do it, I want to send you a photo of the layout I did with the circle weave pattern of my year old grandson. Bless you for being such a giver...the world needs more with your sharing heart, Connie from Atlanta, GA

I bought SCAL to use for fonts and welding--but now I see so much more IF I want to do it--and with your ideas and help, I might just try it!
