I am loving the versatility with this paper collection. And, it's definite masculine appeal doesn't have to be restricted to the humble Father's Day project. For this page, I've created a birthday theme. Something to celebrate the boys!
As already mentioned, the paper strips have been trimmed from the mini paper pad. The join has been hidden beneath the photo and the die cut ephemera paper pieces.
The paper fringe (something that is trending right now) was also created from the mini paper pad. To recreate this look yourself, trim a 2x6 paper strip and score a line down the middle length. Using your scissors, snip intervals of paper up to the score line, along the length. Slip the uncut edge beneath another paper strip.
To add depth to some of the die cut clusters, mount one or two piece with foam tape.
Complete your layout by creating your own kraft tag (kraft paper found in the mini paper pad) and type/journal the details on it to slip beneath your photo. The silver foil paper has been used with a Big Shot die and added as part of the title alphas.
