Camellias: A Paper Tole Tutorial

Hello fellow Power Poppy fans! I'm Ally and I'm here to today to teach you the technique of paper tole and digital stamps.

Here is the card I'm going to make today. It's a super simple design but with lots of hidden dimension...

Power Poppy: Paper Tole Tutorial by Allison Cope

For the PAPER TOLE technique you will need the following tools:
  • 3-4 printed (or stamped) images: I used the fabulous digital Camellias stamp set for my main image and the clear Geraniums Take Two stamp set for my sentiment.
  • scissors and tweezers
  • a stylus and firm foam mat
  • a dark marker for edging: like a Copic W4 or W5
  • 3 dimensional glue like OLBA glue
And to make it even easier, I created a video for all my Power Poppy fans on how this technique is done.  So grab a cup of something warm because it's been cold out there and enjoy!

And here's a side view of all the dimension created by the paper tole technique...

Thank you so much for this tutorial. I have always wanted to know how to do this. It looks harder then it is, I think. I need to try it!

Oh my goodness Ally, this is amazing, what patience to cut all of the layers so perfectly!!! I don't think you could mass produce cards using this technique but, for a special card for someone very special, it most definitely be perfect.
Thank you so much for taking the time to make this wonderful tutorial, you make it so easy to give this technique a try.

Oh, Ally, I finally got to watch your wonderful tutorial! It's fabulous, and I so enjoyed it! I've done some paper tole and LOVE it! And I so appreciate your recommendation of the OLBA glue (I've used bitty pieces of 3M dimensional tape, and it was a LOT of work...hehe!). Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful gifts, and I love your card! Yes, this is one of those cards for extra special people! Hugs, sweet friend! You rock!
