Herringbone is a pattern made up of rows of parallel lines which in any two adjacent rows slope in opposite directions.  Mine wasn't done is the traditional way. But it turned out fun!

DOstamping Tips:

  • Cover the 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" panel with Stampin' Seal + (or use Adhesive Sheets #152334)
  • Cut a variety of patterns in widths varying from 1/4" to 5/8".
  • Start by laying 1-3 strips down in a diagonal direction (as shown above).  The strips will hang off the sides of the panel.  Just trim off to the edge with a scissors.
  • Continue by laying down strips perpendicular to the first strips and trim to edge of panel.  Repeat in various perpendicular directions until the panel is completely covered.  Make sure all edges are trimmed off nicely.
