Faux Silk and Cheaters Bow - One Hour Card Class 019 OHCC019

Faux Silk Technique Instructions:
Cut a piece of tissue paper a couple of inches larger than the card stock you are adhering it to.  Smooth out the tissue paper.  Make a sandwich with the Stampin’ Pierce Mat at the bottom, a piece of scrap paper and then the tissue paper.  Ink the flower stamp with Black ink and stamp with the stem at the very bottom of the tissue paper.  Hold in position for about 30 seconds to allow the ink to penetrate.  Allow to dry a couple of minutes.

Crumple the tissue paper up in a tight ball, and then very carefully unravel the paper. Smooth it out but not completely as you still want a few creases left.

Using a glue-stick, apply glue all over the cardstock piece you are going to adhere the tissue paper to.
Adhere the tissue paper, leaving a few creases as shown. Wrap the excess tissue paper around to the back of the cardstock and adhere with the glue-stick.

To make a Cheaters Bow, wrap the ribbon around the glue pen and tie a single knot.  Pull the tails along the length of the glue pen. 

Tie another knot pulling the tails away from your tool. 

Slide your ribbon off the tool.  You will now have a loop in the middle of your ribbon.  Pinch the loop together at the middle and cut on an angle to open.  

Wrap around flower panel and tape to the back.  Trim ribbon.

Using Tissue Paper and Freezer Paper to make an Envelope
Turn iron on a medium-high setting. 
Cut the freezer paper 8” square.  Cut the piece of tissue paper at least 10” square.
Crumple the tissue paper, open and crumple again to add texture.

Carefully smooth out the tissue paper but don’t remove all the wrinkles.

Lay papers on your ironing board with the freezer paper on the bottom (wax side up) and the tissue paper on top (pretty side up).  

Put your iron in one place for a few seconds, lift it up, don’t slide it, and put it down again somewhere else so as not to smooth out the wrinkles.  Overlap your pressings.
Turn paper over and press again.
Cut excess tissue paper off flush with the freezer paper.
Turn your paper over (tissue paper side down) and iron it again.  Turn it over again (tissue side up) and iron again. 
Complete using the Envelope Punch Board.
