Forgeries on the Fourth - November Tutorials

for·ger·y
ˈfôrjərē/
noun
  1. the action of forging or producing a copy of a document, signature, banknote, or work of art.


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.

Let's refresh our memories on this month's kit...


Ahhh, yes.
  That's the one. 
 Let's see what your Master Forgers have gathered up for you.

Susan found these printables that coordinate nicely with the inspiration kit. They are intended for planners but would make great embellishments for scrapbook pages.

And on the same theme, Lisa also tracked down some free printables which can be used on all types of projects:
And some free Silhouette cut files:
Lisa also made up some die-cut foxes to match the theme of her kit using a multi-piece die but with some clever hand drawing and a bit of scissor work, you could easily build your own. Try searching on Pinterest for fox templates and you'll find several cute and simple variations:


And matching the printed twill in the inspiration kit, Lisa got her stamps out and made her own. Simple, quick and easy - just the sort of forgeries that Lisa's so fond of!


You can see more details over on Lisa's blog here.

Lesley has created some tags using her scraps and made some easy strips using Word



Lynnette spotted these autumnal paper trees on an Etsy site HERE for $15!  Now I KNOW my scissors can whip up these fabulous fall finds.  No machines needed!  The wonkier the better!



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!
