Welcome to the 2nd Annual Handmade Holidays Blog Hop!!! And for those of you who are new to this space, welcome. I hope after you read today's tutorial that it will convince you that this space is worth bookmarking and visiting time and time again! :)
Anthropologie-Inspired Lampshade using my Fiskars tools.
The Twinery until you get a band the thickness you like. Go slow and with each wrap around be sure to use your fingers to push the twine tightly together.
Pretty Scallops Lever Punch XXXX Large and punch 4 scalloped circles from cross-stitch cloth. Punch a single circle using the Circle Lever Punch XXXX Large from the same cloth.
Little Yellow Bicycle. I just removed the bronze brads that came with them and inserted some colorful fabric-covered brads in their place. The felt texture of the petals and the linen texture of the leaves add subtle texture and compliment the cross-stitch material nicely.
Circle Shape Template to trace several circles, varying in size, onto some colored canvas to create your own flower embellishment. Insert a fabric brad through the center. The pink flower was created in the same fashion as the scalloped flower cut from cross-stitch material using sheer organza fabric.
So...back to the hop details:
