Wonky-decoupage stepper

Hello my crafty pals. Thank you for visiting. You are all looking slimmer today as my new graphics card has removed lbs (or kgs if you prefer) from all of you. I’ve never been able to cut a straight line so I smiled at the idea of cutting something wonky on purpose. I printed this decoupage ages ago and I think it was probably a free download. I hadn’t a clue what I wanted to do with it but just thought I would have a wee play. I made the topper to start with using the Spellbinders wonky squares, then folded an A4 sheet of pearlescent card, then I worked out roughly where to do the cut on each side and then where I wanted the folds, I didn’t actually do any measuring so I think it worked out reasonably well. I ran a bit of lace along the bottom mounted on matching coordination card to the card used for the sides. I popped a few flowers, bead sprays and pearls about and a Memory box die cut which I cut in half after gilding.
I was not sure what order to put things onto my card and felt a bit “all thumbs” when doing this one but still enjoyed it. I will catch up with viewing your blogs soon if I don’t run out of steam. I have so much to learn.

and a sort of top view of it - lol.

Don't forget to have some crafty fun. xx Flora
