Tutorial: Roof Tiles

Hello! It's my turn to post today :)

I made this card during the previous blog hop and I am going to make a tutorial on how I did the roof tiles.
I used a scallop border die - you can use any die or punch with a scalloped edge. For the paper, I wanted terracotta tiles color or something close to it anyway. I used some old SU In- Color paper. Sponged edges with grey ink for a rustic look. I always want to use my scraps first so I have no specific measurements. I just made sure the length will fit the roof I need. :)

Fold each scallop...

For added dimension, I rolled the strip with colored pencil. Whatever you have on hand to roll with it is fine. If your scallops are bigger, I would suggest using a round cylinder with a thicker barrel. I really like how the tiles are showing up now :)

Used the biggest/widest strip underneath the card. 

I "sandwiched" the kraft cs in between roof tiles so the back portion of the flap would be clean. Layered the strips of tiles - used double sided tape. After that I cut the edges at an angle to give it a roof shape. 

Easy right? I hope I made sense there lol!
Well, that's it for today...
Please come back tomorrow as we will be featuring the latest addition to 

Have a wonderful day!
