It’s Thursday! Over half way to the weekend! The last two days I’ve showed how to weave to make a background page. Today I want to show how to weave a mat. It really turns out cute!
The first thing that I did was to tear my paper (again I used two colors – I had a third color for my background page) into 1″ strips. The number of strips needed depends on how big the picture is. I then laid down one color of strips and tried to decide how I wanted them – I knew I didn’t want them straight across. After I got the basic idea I wove the other color – under, over – all the way across. I then attached the strip to the first and last vertical strip.
I then continued to weave the horizontal strips as far down as needed (depending on picture size and look desired).
What I did next was attach the picture to the mat and then attach the mat to the background page. I then tore off any extra ends until the desired look was accomplished. Here is my finished page.
I think it is adorable!
God bless you and yours on this fine day!
