Creative Inking Blog Hop April 2016 Springing Into Flowers
April 20, 2016
Thank you so much for hopping by! I love to find a way to use Stampin' Up!® products in a different way. When I was at the hardware store recently I saw some plastic tubing. It inspired me to make necklaces and bracelets using Stampin' Up!® Designer Series Paper and In Color Blossom Accents. I got tubing that items would fit in. For one, flowers were "fussy cut" out of Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper. For the other one, In Color Blossom Accents were placed in the tube. There are all sorts of ways to fill the tubing so let your imagination flow. Below are the two necklaces (or bracelets as I made both) at the stage of tubing filled. You cut tubing depending on length you want making sure you have enough for fasteners:
Next holes were punched at the end. You can use all sorts of ribbons depending on the look you want. You can also get small corks that would plug the holes and adhere an eye hook to the end of the cork and add your ribbon to that. I used what I had which was duct tape and wrapped the end after placing the ribbon through the holes. It worked as well and there are so many colors of duct tape if you want to go all out making these.
Below are the finished projects. You can see how the duct tape was wrapped around the end to strengthen the end and make sure items do not fall out of the end.
Thank you for stopping by. Hop on to the next blog, but before you do please subscribe to this blog so you do not miss out on anything.
Awesome!! You are so clever! I would have walked into the hardware store and saw plain old plastic tubing! Thanks for sharing!
