We are so excited that this page by Colorbök designer Maria Filar is featured in the May/June issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine! Maria created this layout using strips of Colorbök fabric available at JoAnn Fabric and Craft Larger Superstores. These fabrics are from the Sweet Blooms collection (designed by Renee) and our Heidi Grace Taking Flight collection.
To use this technique on your own pages, accordion-fold a strip of fabric, using a sewing machine or hot glue to secure the folds. Don't worry about making it perfect - a little unevenness adds to the charm! To get a more distressed look, try slightly unraveling the edges of your fabric strip before folding. Use colored staples to attach the strips to your page. Maria used a double layer of fabric as her main embellishment, and a smaller single strip of fabric as an accent.
