Several years ago I taught a fabric stiffener technique at a paper crafting class. When Craft Critique was in search of tips on using products related to fabric I decided to dig my Stiffy Fabric Stiffener out of the cabinet and play.
Stiffy fabric stiffener is a liquid medium that dries invisible and leaves a matte finish on your fabric. It is a popular product used in crochet. In sewing, it can be used to laminate lace to fabric and for applique.
But Stiffy isn’t just for sewing! It can also be used in paper crafting. Add fabric to your cards to give the receiver a tactile treat.
In my finished creation, all of the chocolate brown layers are actually stone-washed silk which gives the card a nice feel!
To use lightweight fabrics in paper crafting, Stiffy fabric stiffener is exactly the medium you need to make the job turn out right. Even a light, airy, untameable silk can be used in the same way as cardstock… for a beautiful effect!
