how to use fringe on handmade cards

I love adding fringe to my paper crafting projects, especially handmade cards! I love the texture and it is just plain fun!


Another great thing about fringe is that it doesn't require a lot tools. If you have regular ol' scissors, you can fringe. However the more I make fringe, the more I appreciate upgrading my supplies. As you can see below, I started with regular scissors before upgrading to fringe scissors and now I have awesome Essentials by Ellen fringe dies!

My favorite materials to fringe include crepe & tissue paper because there are so many gorgeous colors and they are lightweight for movement. I also love felt and I can't wait to add some felt fringe to some home decor projects.

I also have one favorite way to add fringe to cards that I always come back to...adding it in a negative die cut space.

I love it because it's easy and striking! I use dry adhesive like double sided tape to adhere each layer of fringe on the card front. Then I use foam adhesive to mount a negative die cut panel like this rainbow, over the fringe.

Have you used fringe on cards? What are your favorite tips?

Thanks so much for stopping by!
