Happy Father’s Day! CardsPosted: June 7, 2012
To make my arrows, all I need are my Monsieur Paper Ribbons and Mr. Harris Pattern Paper.
Cut out your paper ribbons. I used two for one of my cards, but you can use as few or as many as you need for the size of your card.
I started cutting at the bottom of the paper ribbon and made my cuts at about a 45 degree angle to the center. This is my favorite way to make these arrows…using paper ribbons make it so much easier!
Cut the other side and the woodgrain arrows are ready to add to your project.
Now, to make arrows from the pattern paper, I cut 1″ strips from the pattern paper (you can make them any size you like). Again, I started cutting at the bottom of the strip at about a 45 degree angle to the center of the strip.
This time I’ll show you how I cut the other side of the arrow to make them all pretty much the same in size. First, I’ll match up my scissor line to the cut end on the other side.
Then, I just turn the paper strip and match up my scissor line to the cut center of the strip.
All that’s left to do is take your cut arrows and arrange them the way you like on your project.
