Fall/Halloween Tutorial with Janice Whiting

Hi, everyone!  Today I have a fun, fall inspired garland to share with you!  I saw this project over at Happy Clippings and thought by using our Score-Pal and Score-tape, that I could create the same project but much more easily and with the end result being more clean and crisp!  

1. Using the maple leaf template at Happy Clippings, fold your paper in half, trace temple, and cut out.

2. Turn the leaf cut out on its side and using your Scor-Pal, score at every half inch.
 3. Fold on the score lines, folding one way and then another, back and forth to create an accordion shape.

 4. Place a strip of Scor-tape across the longest side of the leaf.

5. Bend in the middle, adhering the side with the score-tape together, creating the maple leaf.

Create as many of these as needed to create your fall garland! I adhered a loop of twine to be able to feed each leaf through the ribbon.  

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you've enjoyed our week long fall projects!!! :)
