Good Morning!

Remember that Fiskars paper crimper?  Today’s Tutorial from Design Team Member Ellen Sosnoski showcases a unique way to use that crimper with Core’dinations Chocolate Box cardstock. So blow the dust off of it and let’s get moving!

First, using your paper trimmer or scissors, cut very thin strips out of the cardstock. Scraps work great for this, too.

Next, run them through the crimper.

And Sand.

In three easy steps, you have your very own, hand made raffia. the great thing about using the Chocolate Box cardstock is that you can showcase the front and the back of the cardstock!

You can use it too fill jars like this or gift bags and other little trinkets.

Here is the finished project…
