Woven Thanks by Roni

Posted on November 09 2018

It's almost time for Thanksgiving here in the States, tucked between Halloween and Christmas folks sometimes forget to send greetings during this lovely time of the year. This year I thought it would be nice to take a bit of time and send a few thankful wishes to those who live afar.



This darling little pumpkin doll is just the ticket, especially when paired with this beautifully woven mat made using Rinea Autumn Foiled Paper Variety Collection and products from Imagine!

This month we are very thankful as Rinea and Imagine have teamed up to bring you some amazing projects featuring Rinea's lovely foiled papers and a wide variety of products from Imagine! 

Let's get started...
Cut several strips of foiled paper 2x6", the exact number needed will vary depending on the mat size needed. Next fold the top third of the strip down (mocha strip); fold the bottom third up over the first (marigold strip); finally, fold the strip in half (ruby strip). Please note, this doesn't have to be precise measurements.


Next weave the strips in a basic over, under fashion. When you reach the desired size, fold all of the strips to the back of the mat and secure with the desired adhesive. 

You can leave the foiled paper mat as is or you can use a piece of sandpaper or fingernail file to distress the mat as I did here.  I just wanted a bit of white peeking out here and there to give it a "worn" feel.
Trim a piece of pattern paper; ink the edges using a sponge dauber and Acorn VersaFine Clair ink; mount it to a dark brown card blank.  Use Tear It! Tape to affix the woven mat to the card.
Stamp sentiment and fall images on a die-cut tag using VersaFine Clair inks; color the images using Memento Dual-Tip Markers. Stamp the pumpkin doll similarly.
Affix the tag and pumpkin doll to the card using Tear It! Tape.
