Ripping Technique

Using the ripping technique on your scrapook layout can add a neat dimension to your page.

There are two ways to rip a page. One makes the ripped edge white and the other makes it the color of the paper.

To make a white edge, follow these steps:

Step 1
Hold the paper in the air in front of you.
Step 2
Decision: Would you like the white edge on the right side or the left side? For the right side, pull and rip the left side toward you. Therefore, for the left side, do the opposite, that is, pull and rip the right side toward you.

As you can see, which ever side you pull towards you, does not have the white edge.

If you are a little nervous about ripping the paper free-hand, try using a decorative edge ruler. click on the picture below to find out more.
