What can you do with string? by Phillis Walrath
I usually use string or embroidery floss on my pages as an accent and to add to some depth to my page. I just lay it down in a swirly line and then staple it down, like I did in my March page. Today I want to show you how you can use it to make an cardboard embellishment have more pizazz or make it the color you want for you page.
I started with this cardboard flower that I have never used because the stripes on it didn't fit with my other designs on my pages. I had it marked to go in the trash, when I thought about how I could transform it to a different color.
I used this green floss to cover up the flower. I attached some adhesive to the back of the flower and then began twirling the green around the flower.
I continued covering the flower with the green string. I applied some adhesive on the ends of the petals to help the green staring stay in place.
Once it was covered completely in green I weaved some of the string into the other string on the back of the flower. Since the flower was very fat I applied it to my LO with adhesive dots
Here is my finished layout.
Thanks Phillis, what a great way to use up some of your string stash.
