A Bit of Paper Weaving

I wanted to add just a touch of something different with this card.  I was thinking of weaving ribbon (since I have a big drawer full) but then decided on paper instead.  I cut 1/4 in. strips of paper.  I put down a piece of tape on my work surface.  It may work better if you use double sided tape.  I didn't and my paper kept moving.  Attach alternating strips to the tape, then weave more strips through them.  When I finished the weaving, I added some more tape along the back to hold the strips of paper.  I then cut it to fit my card.  You will have to apply glue to the edges on top.  It takes a little time but I like the effect.

The sunflowers are from the "Walk In My Garden" Cricut Cartridge and the message flower came from Stretch Your Imagination.  The lady bug is from Home Decor.  Can you tell we love Cricut?  I added Black Stickles for the seeds on the sunflower.  I added a little bling with a glitter gel pen.  Peggy
