I love to make scarves, but taking pictures can be difficult. Weather it is is finding a model or getting the point of view on the scarf. I decided to make a cut out. I started out with cardboard and sketched a silhouette. I wanted a neutral background with a subtle pattern. I used a tattered book to decoupage it. All of my supplies I had lying around the house.

You can see a repair I made. It helps to have a large enough box that you do not have to extend over a fold. I did support the back with a 1x4 to prevent further problems and to support it.

I used Mod Podge in a satin finish to prepare for my paper scrap. When that ran out I also used school glue.


I then placed my scrap in the desired spot. It looks better when you have randomly torn pieces. I tore off the headers for a more uniform look but did not worry about the margins.


I used more adhesive to seal the piece onto the piece. Add one piece at a time overlapping. Turn your pieces so they are not all going in the same direction.


It works great to showcase bold colors, monochromatic neutrals, or anything in between.

This rocks, and I am bookmarking it. I saw this 'model' on one of your earlier posts and will try my hand at this. Next to read about the scarf.
