Mediterranean Blooms in Paper Tole

On my Live with Michele on Tuesday night I created this card using the Stampin’ Up! Mediterranean Blooms Designer Series Paper from the current 2024-25 Annual Catalogue. The technique used in creating this card is called Paper Toil.

What is a Paper Tole?

Paper Tole (Three dimensional decoupage) is the fascinating art of making realistic three dimensional pictures from a number of flat artist’s prints. The effect is achieved by cutting, shaping and reassembling the paper pieces to give a three dimensional image.

How too…

The video below goes through all the steps I used.

TIP: If you are wanting to coat the back of the DSP for extra strength and don’t have Modge Podge, then what you can do as Tombow Multi – Purpose Glue is acid free is to water it down and with a foam brush paint it on. Let dry completely before cutting.
