Paper Weaving with the September Creative Cafe' Kit!

Today's card for The Rubber Cafe features the Paper Weaving technique with the Too Cute To Spook special incentive set for Kit club members at the special price of 7.99, (reg priced 14.99)

The first thing I did to create this fun backgound is to cut 1/2 inch strips from most of the papers in the paper pack in the Creative Cafe' Kit.
 It's a bit hard to see in this photo, but I ran tape down the left side, bottom and diagonally from top left to bottom right of a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch panel.  Start weaving papers as shown.
When you complete the weaving, flip your panel over and trim off the excess tails.
I then inked the edges of the woven piece with a black ink pad before attaching it to my black cardstock panel.  

I added the paperclip on this card with a bit of Scrap Happy Glue.  I could have clipped it, but I wanted to see all of the color on the clip, so I glued it on top of the image panel.
