I was working on a scrapbook page a few weeks back that featured one of our 5 daughters when she was in braces.  Her photo is what inspired this new line-weave tangle I call “Braces”

It’s created by simply joining together  left and right parentheses signs and then drawing a line between each shape to connect them together – similar to how metal braces on my teenagers teeth were connected with wire between them.

In the how-to video I’ve used it as a filler inside a star shape.  In the photo below I used it as a design element across the center of the page.  You could very easily use it along a border/string as well.



Here’s a 2-minute video showing you how to connect the lines to line weave this tangle. I hope you find it helpful.
