Challenge Me Tuesday: Popping Paper

** Next challenge is to get Krafty!  Let's see you use up some of that kraft coloured paper, cardboard, and kraft embellishments! Send us your samples at  practicalscrapperslayouts(at)gmail(dot)com fr a chance to be part of our feature next week!

This week, we asked that you create a project using paper in a way that gives it dimension. ( folding, rolling, twisting, crimping, crushing, pop-ups etc. We wanted to see projects that were different than the usual paper flowers and dry embossing. We've got some great examples for you, enjoy!

Practical Scrapper Erin rolled her journaling spot in two directions to give it a "scroll" shape before gluing it onto her layout

Practical Scrapper Christine added dimension to her project by poking pin holes in the shape of a heart in her paper.

Practical Scrapper Christine didn't just use any old paper to make her medallion flowers, she used border die cuts from Momenta. The pink one with the different edges is made from a scalloped border.

Practical Scrapper Christine glued only the center of her Momenta flowers down and then pulled the petals up to add some unique dimension.

Practical Scrapper Rachel used her Silhouette machine to create the pop-out ampersand on her card.

Rolled paper candles in a Perfect Dozen! (flames are flower petals!)

 Practical Scrapper Erin used fringe scissors to add dimension to the wild Momenta papers she used for this page.

 Folding and distressing combined

Ann used a scoring blade to create mountain and valley fold lines that result in this pleated paper.

Cathy made loops in various sizes with paper and some burlap ribbon!
