CRAFTING TIP OF THE WEEK (#78) Moving Elements


For this week's tip I thought I would share how you could give movement to certain elements on your crafting projects.

One of the things I find this concept easiest to apply to is animals.

Basically, you reassemble body parts using small brads. For instance, say you want to scrap a layout of a day at the zoo with your family. You will certainly take photos of animals while there. Why not make them more interactive by reassembling the parts on your pages to move.

When developing your photos be sure to get duplicates or if printing on your home computer print 2 of the same photo. Cut the body from one photo, set aside. Then cut the head, tail and legs from the other photo and reattach all to the body by punching holes in the photo layers at the same time with a small hole punch. Insert a brad in the the holes until your assembly is complete. Then just slide the moving parts left & right.

I love this interactive way of adding a unique and even more memorable feature to my projects.

I hope you do too.

Tune in tomorrow for tool time Tuesday.
