String Art Tutorial

I'm sharing a Design Team tutorial for Off The Rails Scrapbooking today  “String Art“. An easy technique but a little time consuming.

1) Draw a circle on the back of your paper, mark the circle at equal intervals. Pierce the marks with a paper piercer or a sewing needle.




2) Tape the end of your string/floss near any pierced hole on the back of your paper. This will be hole #1. Bring your string/floss up from the back of your paper through hole #1 to the front side of your paper. Count 10 holes on the front side of your paper and take your string/floss back down through hole #10.




3) Pull your string/floss up through hole #11 and down through hole #2. Repeat this process until you have completed the circle. The string/floss will go through each hole twice.
 
 
 
For the “So Cute” page I used a 9 inch circle and made my piercing at 1 inch intervals.

 
 
 
 


For the Puddle Jumper page I used a 9 inch circle and made my piercing at ¾ inch intervals.


 

 
 
 


Changing the intervals or the number of holes skipped will provide different outcomes.


Be sure to check out the Off The Rails Scrapbooking Blog
and see what the rest of the Design Team is doing this month.
