I love Core’dinations so much! The possibilities are truly, truly ENDLESS!  Ellen Sosnoski here with a fun and easy tutorial on how to make your own Chevron print.

How much do you love Chevron?  Let me here it!  Here are some of my favorite examples I have found on Pinterest.

P.S. did you know Core’dinations is on Pinterest?  Follow us here and we will follow you back, too.

From iheartprintsandpatterns.blogspot.com:

And another gorgeous print from a cute Etsy Store with loads of chevron prints

Here is my tag I created using some Chocolate Box cardstock.

And a close up:

Here is how I did it. Please note: I recreated this on a larger scale so it was easier to take photos and see the grid. I would recommend starting small like I did with a tag. A 12×12 sheet of cardstock is really hard to line up on your scoring too for THIS project because you are twisting and turning it. So you want to practice first and start on a smaller scale.

Note: Not familiar with Scoring?  Check out the Learn Tab on our website for our awesome How To videos including Scoring.

First, start making a grid on the BACK of  your Core’dinations Cardstock. Remember that when you are scoring with Core, you want to work from the back so the raised image is on the front to sand.

Now you want to connect the grid to make the Chevron pattern. I did mine freehand, you can definitely use your ruler but this is only a guideline for scoring. You definitely want to use the ruler for the grid.

Now you can adjust the sizes of  your pattern if you would like. The larger the pattern the easier. As you can see, it may  take you some sketching to get the look you are looking for but we are working from the back so that doesn’t matter!
