Mike and celebrated our 18th anniversary on the 18th (does that make it our golden anniversary?!?) so I thought this week would be a perfect time to share a layout about us. It's another two-pager that features circles folded into squares as a design element. It's a super easy technique to add dimension and incorporate lots of various patterns onto your page!
S U P P L I E S :
The squares that embellish this page started out as circles. I cut 15 circles (3-inches in diameter) from various BasicGrey Dear Heart papers, but any double-sided paper will work. I also cut a 2.125" square as a template (this can be a scrap piece of paper or cardstock) to determine the placement of the score lines.
Place the square template in the center of each circle, and score along the straight edges.
Then just fold along the score lines! You can adhere the folded flaps down, or leave them loose for added dimension. The result is small boxes that are perfect for featuring an embellishment or small snippets of journaling.
This technique can be used with a variety of circle sizes for completely different looks. I know I'll be trying it again in the near future!
And after some research, I discovered 18 is actually the porcelain anniversary. Hmmm...I guess I should be thankful my gift was a nice dinner out and not a toilet, right?!? Happy Thursday!
