It was only a matter of time before I combined my Sizzix obsession with magazine pages. I was hesitant because the pages are so easily torn and flimsy if not coated with decoupage medium. I didn’t really want to run that through my machine. It hit me that I could laminate the pages with clear contact paper to give strength and durability. Yay! Now I can fold, twist and rough up magazine pages about as well as I can heavy cardstock. This would work well for fragile old book pages and sheet music too.
I formed the 3 D rose by coiling the cut strip around a toothpick like the Sizziz 3 D Rose die insert instructs, then I added a jewel to the center of the rose with Mod Podge Dimensional Magic. I cut some leaf shapes from an old yellow leather purse, and used E6000 to adhere the rose and leaves to the Plaid Ring Bling ring blank.
