Welcome to "Forgeries on the Fourth" where it is no crime to create your own version of the trendy, hip products from the inspiration kit using your own stash and ingenuity. Each month on the fourth, check out tutorials from your Master Forgers or links to resources they have found for you on the internet.
In keeping with the neutral tone of the inspiration kit, a link to these free printable birch bark tags.
Homemade paper, three different takes...
LesleyG has created a fair few forgeries this month including:
but there may be more!
Lisa found several links to some great bags such as this one in German which perfectly matches the original kit (!) and this one here. In fact, she tried that second one using a full sheet of scrapbook paper and then went on to make her own template and ran up two others. You can find out more on her blog.
And she had another go at the print and cut feature on her Silhouette Cameo to make some vellum die-cuts. Again, with limited success but the few that came out right are super cute!
What about some dotty kraft paper?
We would love to see anything that our members create using the tutorials we've found - and, even more so, if you counterfeit something from scratch. Please do share with us by adding a link to our monthly Mr. Linky!
