How to Make Cathedral Windows

Hello!

Today we’re happy to welcome Sarah Carrington, another of our Guest Designers to the Bubbly Funk Blogging team:

My name is Sarah Carrington and I am a 43 year old mum of 3.   I am a Cheshire girl living in beautiful Moray in NE Scotland and I’ve been crafting for as long as I can remember.  I love to create all sorts of projects and try new crafting skills.  I am currently creating a new craft haven and in the process am rediscovering all sorts of craft gems hidden away in my old craft pit!

My main love is scrapbooking and making mini albums, closely followed by a love of wet felting and weaving. I used to be on Bubbly Funk’s Design team many moons ago and am so happy to be asked to have a little play with some of the new Through the Letterbox craft boxes  xxxx

Sarah has been using a brand new Letterbox Craft Box called ‘One Happy Day’ to make some projects to share with us.  It will be available from Bubbly Funk shop soon,  but as a sneak peek we thought we’d give you Sarah’s little tutorial on how to make some Cathedral Windows, which are a component feature of her LO

************

I started my first LO by making a set of cathedral windows. I made 16 windows, some from plain Cardstock, and some using Patterned Paper.

To make a window, draw a circle and cut it out, or use a die-cut.  Draw lines about a cm in from the edge on 4 sides.

 Score these lines and fold the flaps in.

This is your window. You can ink the edges, distress the edges etc.

On some of the squares, I cut a slightly smaller square of patterned paper and inserted it into the window, the lovely flocked spotty paper and glitter paper from the kit were perfect.

Happy Crafting

Sarah
