Welcome blog hoppers! I have a sketch and a layout for you. I find scrap lifting easier if I draw a sketch from the page I want to use as my inspiration and store the sketches away for times when I’m short of an idea sorry I can’t remember where I got this one from, if you recognise the page please let me know so that I can attribute my sketch to the original page. I draw my sketches using Word but you can just as easily draw by hand in a notebook.
For this page I used a fair bit of Washi tape in making the bunting, the arrows and the buttons. If you are anything like me you have been collecting Washi tape just because it’s a nice thing to have oh OK I admit I’ve probably got more than I’m ever going to use! By the way I store my Washi on a jailor’s ring available from Ebay. Anyway, at a recent retreat we were looking at ways of using tape and my lovely friend Susibee discovered that after being stuck to card, it cuts easily with a punch. So we made some buttons which are quite simple to do and very cheap; here’s how …
Assemble a few pieces of scrap card.
He he you really needed a photo for that, didn’t you?
Stick strips of Washi as shown.
Cut with a one-inch circle punch.
Punch two small holes near the centre and edge with ink.
Thread through with baker’s twine and attach to your page with sticky pads.
OK so I didn’t I mention I have a bit of a collection of baker’s twine, too. :o)
To make your Washi bunting…
Cut a length of baker’s twine to the required length of your finished bunting.
Fix strips of tape over the twine so it sticks to itself.
And there you have your bunting. :o) Simples!
I have a little Washi tape and baker’s twine for one person who leaves me a comment today.
Please link me up to your blogs if you use my sketch, won’t you? I’d love to see what you do.
If you are taking part in the UKS Spring blog hop you probably arrived here from Beautiful Impressions and, after kindly leaving me a comment, will be visiting Mole’s Creations.
Thanks for hopping by,
