IDOS Winter Card Olympics Challenge #4 - CURLING

Welcome to another "I Dream of Stamping" Winter Card Olympics challenge! Challenge #4 is CURLING! You can curl paper, ribbon, or whatever else you want to curl! Just be sure to include HOW you have used curling on your card in the description. Make your project and then enter the challenge over at I Dream of Stamping for your chance to win a prize!

I curled some designer paper strips and made the curls into the tails of a bow. Just run thin strips of paper over closed scissors or twirl tightly around something long, thin, and round (like the needle part of a paper piecer). Do it slowly so as not to tear the paper or wrinkle it. If there are two layers to the paper, the bottom one might peel off, making it thinner and easier to work with.

Aren't these Pure Innocence girls from My Favorite Things, just ADORABLE?!!

Hop on over and visit with Jana and Michelle to see how they "curled"! Don't forget to visit I Dream of Stamping to see all of our challenges and join in on the fun!

I can't wait to see what you come up with!
