Designer Tip:
For added interest, change stitch type when sewing and do not sew over edges in areas with larger tears.
Lightly mist paper edges with water before tearing and curling paper. As the paper dries, it will hold it’s shape.
For a more natural look, use multiple colors of ink when stenciling petals.
The gradation of color on the banners adds depth and a feel of movement.
