Creating Mitered Corners on Scrapbook Layouts
Bias tape looks beautiful around the edge of a quilt, and it works equally well to fram a scrapbook layout, creating a cozy setting for your at-home stories. Here's how to get beautiful mitered corners like those on Wendy Sue Anderson's layout:
I Found You by Wendy Sue Anderson, as seen in Scrapbooking with Fabric & Notions, page 69.
1. Start with a roll of bias tape and a sheet of cardstock.
2. If you look closely you will notice that one side of the bias tape is slightly wider than the other. The shorter side is the FRONT. This is important. Always put the wider side on the back of your project.
3. Open the bias tape and start stitching it onto the edge of your cardstock - be sure the fold is snug against the edge. (I like to start near the center of the bottom edge of my layout) When you are about 2-1/2" from the corner, stop stitching. Lift the presser foot.
