Stamp a Faire 2015 – Threads Challenge


Create a project featuring a thread nest.  We know everyone has a spool of thread lying around and we hope this tutorial inspires you to give it a try. Go dig that old spool out of your sewing kit and try adding it to your paper crafting projects in a fresh, new & trendy way.

Create a project featuring twine.  Danielle highlighted TEN different ways to incorporate twine into your projects, so pick one and get started!

  1. Wrap twine around a card where two patterns meet to create a border.
  2. Add a piece of twine to a section of a card with staples.
  3. Wrap twine around an embellishment before attaching to a card.
  4. Create a twine nest or branches with jute twine.
  5. Use twine as balloon strings.
  6. Stitch with twine.
  7. Bundle twine behind a focal point.
  8. Tie twine onto a tag.
  9. Create faux crocheted flowers with twine.
  10. Create luggage tag tied buttons with twine.

So this time we had two designers giving us their creative ideas on using thread and twine.

I enjoyed making this card.  I was trying to create an illusion of sky and earth in this card.   Because I used so many colors, I think I can make 10 different cards.   LOL
