Xyron and Quick Quotes Blog Hop Week

 This week, Xyron's DT is playing along with the team from Quick Quotes! How fun.  I decided to create a folding screen/ home decor piece.  I'm going to show you how to make this, using some heavy cardboard for the base.  The Baggage Claim collection was just perfect for this.  I may go back and add some travel photos later - but I think it would be cute to clip them on and change them out as desired.

 1.  Cut two pieces of chipboard 12" x 6.5".  Cut a piece of chipboard 4" x 6.5" to use as a template for scoring.  The chipboard is too thick to use a scoring board in the traditional manner, but I used the 4" wide template, and drew a pencil line every 4" on both pieces of board.  Then I was able to score these lines.

 2. Overlap the end panels of the cardboard strips, and adhere them together using the Xyron Mega Runner.  This will give you 5 panels (the center one will be double thickness).

3.  Fold the score lines back and forth, so that the screen will stay in position.

4.  Ink the edges of the screen with the QQ Powder Puff Ink (Blue Lagoon).

 5.  Cut the paper panels from the patterned paper and ink the edges. Run through the Xyron 5" Creative Station.  Adhere to the panels.

 6.  Make faux washi tape by cutting a border from the paper, and running it through the Xyron 1.5" Create-a-Sticker.  When you tear away the adhesive strip from the machine, it will create the perfect "tape tears" on the paper as well.

7.  Decorate each panel as desired - with the faux washi tape, stickers and stamped images.

I LOVE this! I have been looking for something decorative that would work for each of the seasons and just haven't wanted to do the picture frame and stand thing. This is perfect! Thanks for the inspiration!
