Howdy folks! It's been a busy day here at the Sereika house! I had hoped to have this posted about TWELVE HOURS AGO...but the day had a mindset unto itself it seems! LOL
Today I wanted to share a nifty way to use twine...I am going to use twine from The Twinery in Lemondrop, Buttercream & Mandarin. I find these three together make a very nice Autumn color palette. :)
The supplies you will need to make this fun embellishment are super basic:
The Twinery Twine in assorted colors
Scor-Tape Sheets by Scor-Pal
Nested Maple Leaves Die by Spellbinders (or die of your choice) & Die Cut Machine
Step One: Cut the Scor-Tape just larger than needed for your die cut. Cut scrap cardstock just longer on one end. Here I have cut a piece 2.5" x 3.0" then cut the cardstock just .25" longer, 2.5"x3.25". Adhere the Scor-Tape to the cardstock and remove the top piece to reveal the tape.
Step Two: Adhere the darkest color of twine on an angle almost in the center of the piece of tape covered cardstock. Begin to wind it back and forth pressing the twine firmly onto the adhesive as you go.
Step Four: Run the piece through the die cut machine a few times, shimming if necessary to cut all the way through the twine covered cardstock. GENTLY peel away die cut twine piece from die to reveal your custom embellishment!
Use finished piece on a fun fall project! I'd love to see what you do with this fun technique! Please share a link here if you do try it out for yourself!
