First Cut

Printable Party Invite & DIY Backgrounds

This week’s shape, the borders set by Jennifer Wambach comes with 6 designs that can be combined or used separately to create patterns and borders.  Super versatile, right?

For my project I used the border shape combined with some of my favorite things parties and the print and cut feature, and created this little invitation. I’m loving these bright colors lately!

Jen decided to make a customized paper with today’s shape!  She used a bronze sketch pen to create the chevron outlines and then cut chevrons that were slightly smaller out of some patterned paper scraps, to fill in some of the spaces.  So cute!  I can’t wait to see how Jen uses this paper in an upcoming Thursday’s Sketch!
What will you create with this week’s shape?
