Long time ago I bought an 8x8 pad with these bandana prints. I associate lotsa good things with bandanas and I still like the paper but it's harder than heck to use on a card. Thanks to this class I've found a way. (Online classes are TOO COOL! Can't believe this is my first one.)
Two tips for you today.
TIP 1: Grab a cereal box and make yourself one of these.
TIP 2: You can cut your panel into even strips, or...
I looked at the chunk of PP before me and decided where there was kind of a natural spot to split up the pattern, so I cut the first strip (on the right) and then a matching-sized strip on the left.
Then I decided on a wider middle strip (again, I "saw" those mirrored black figures in the middle and opted to keep them together) which yielded the two thinner strips to the left and right of it.
Thanks for visiting today. Have a great ol' day.
