1. distressing tool (optional)
2. ink with blender (optional)
3. spray bottle with water
4. heating tool (optional)
5. lace (optional)
6. double sided paper for the top (preferred)
7. paper for the bottom
Ink and distress the edges (optional).
Use your spray bottle to spritz around all the edges of the paper you are going to scrunch. Use your finger to blend and spread the water and let the ink run wild.
Going back to the first edge of where you spritzed, use a pinching motion to scrunch the paper. Depending on how much scrunching you want, move your pinching around like a zig zag motion, you may add more water if you need to for the effect you want.
Here I am bending back a fold that was slightly torn. I like to show off both sides of double sided paper.
I use a low heat setting so my paper won't fly away, to dry around the edges and it makes the paper stiff. Air drying works too, but takes longer.
