Crochet trim

One thing I have noticed on alot of scrapbook pages lately, has been crocheted items. Flowers, trims, and even doily's have shown up on some pages. And since I have recently picked back up my crochet needles, I had to try to make some trims. I made this one as pratice, but I love how it turned out. Since I used a heavier yarn, it is a little bulky, but I will try a smaller yarn. I punched evenly spaced holes along the side of my cardstock. It took me a few tries to get a stich combo that I liked. This one is 2 double crochets in each hole and then two chains. Then you can just slide the cardstock under your page element. I think a shell stich would be great as a trim on a page, but I have yet to figure out the spacing!

If you would like to try to learn crocheting, check out Lion Brand Yarn's website. They have great video and picture tutorials to show you all the basic stiches. Happy crafting!
