I wanted to share with you a fun way to make raffia using Core'dinations Cardstock. You can see it on the Core blog today as well.

First, cut strips of Core'dinations Chocolate Box Cardstock with your trimmer....


Next, run them through the crimper....





then Sand!


Now you have some easy raffia for jars, birthday and those ever important Holiday bags!


The transparency, ribbon, felt pieces and bling are all LYB...I love their products!
