Simple Chevron Layout

>> Thursday, March 8, 2012

Chevrons are so in right now and I admit i totally love them.  Today i am going to share a quick way to create this beautiful design element with an old tool/fad that you probably already have in your stash.

It's time to break out the old photo corner punch.  Punch a bunch of corners out of the same paper.  Here i am using the Double Dutch line.  I knew i wanted 4 chevron rows and you will need at least 5 to 7 corners.  What's cool about this technique is you can use small scraps to create this look.

Make a row of three corners by taking the second corner to the first corner matching up the edges.  Add the third corner to create mountain peeks.

Now you are ready to add the bottom part of the chevron.  Turn the corner upside down and match up the "v" of the corner.  Add the next layer and suddenly you have a chevron.  You can keep adding the next layers until you create a length you want. Easy peasy chevrons!
