Hi friends! I have a serious problem and I think many paper-crafters can relate. Precious paper. You know that stuff that is too pretty to use, and to add insult to injury sometimes there is a gorgeous paper on the back side too! I seriously feel like I need to buy a couple of sheets to use and a couple to keep. Luckily my frugalness keeps me from buying 5 sheets of the same piece of paper but cutting into my one and only sheets pains me. Today I am going to show you how to stretch that lovely paper and make a cute card!
Watch the video for instructions!
