New Bangs

Chris Hertel's daughter loves purple, so it was a given for her to use this gorgeous Utopia Collection for a layout about her new stylin' do!

Here are some instructions from Chris: "Using a 12 x 12 purple cardstock base, I trimmed a piece of Tranquil paper from Kaiser Craft's Utopia Collection, and
also a piece of Bliss, to 5" x10", adhere them side by side leaving a
1" border all around. I rounded the opposite corners of the papers.
Next I took 3 strips (1 1/2" x 12) of the back side of Tranquil,
glued them together, then folded (using approx. 1/2 inch folds) like
an accordion. Unfold the accordion, and refold the paper into
pleats, then zigzag stitch down the center. With all the folds the
paper will come out much shorter, to about 12" long. I folded a piece
under to make it about 11", and then glued it in the center of the
patterned papers. I then made some embellishments using my die
cutting machine, and added some purple Stickles and some BoBunny
iCandy Jewels. Add your photos, embellishments, journaling and title."

Paper: Kaiser Craft Utopia Collection
