Just Pleat It!

Yay for Thursday! Its time for another rockin challenge at the Some Odd Girl blog!  This challenge is ALL about pleating! Pleat some ribbon, pleat some paper, pleat some fabric.... just PLEAT it!

I used the darling Garden Mae for my card. I just love her to pieces! She is just the cutest little oddie. I have so many of her printed and colored already. For this card I used my sharpie markers to tie dye her t-shirt. I also made the spiral center of my flower and added mini pipe cleaner vines. The mesh stuff in the background is plastic canvas.

As for the pleating... most people pleat by sewing or stapling. I pleated using my Helmar tape runner and folding then dabbing a little tape on both sides. Worked like I charm. I then stapled my pleated ribbon to the card.

Be sure to hop on over to Some Odd Girl and pleat something with us!! Also while you are there check out the awesome images in the Spring Release images
