Using fabric in a scrapbook layout adds a unique texture to your pages. Have you tried it yet? If you have, have you created anything with fabric recently? Using fabric in papercrafting has come a long way in recent times. You can now get adhesive-backed fabric which is so convenient to use. It’s all ready to go, just cut, peel and stick. A couple of manufacturers providing this material are Michael Miller Memories (see image at right) as well Love, Elsie has some really cute designs made for KI Memories (See image below at left.)
Elsie Flannigan tells ScrapScene the following about using fabric in projects: â€œSelf adhesive fabric is one of my new favorite items! I love the texture and there are so many ways to use it! I love making mini books with it, cutting my own titles and creating â€œstickers!â€ Elsie shows how the adhesive backed fabric works on her post here. Also, check out Elsie’s blog for many more great ideas using fabric.
