Happy Monday! It's my day to post on The Twinery's blog! I hope you had a good weekend, and are in the mood for an fall themed project today. I have been thinking about this card for weeks...well not this card exactly, but something using LOTS of twine and cut-outs.
To create my twine background - I cut out a piece of cardstock that was 1/2 an inch smaller than my card front. I then applied some ATG tape in a grid pattern across the entire piece of cardstock. I tried two different methods to apply my twine. Learn from my mistakes! I first tried cutting each piece individually, but I quickly discovered that method was waaaay too time consuming. My second method was much easier and faster. Instead of cutting each individual piece of twine, I applied each line of twine WITHOUT cutting...until switching colors. Once I covered the entire piece of cardstock, I took my scissors and evened up any stray pieces of twine. All in all - it only took me about 30 minutes total. I can't wait to try something similar for Christmas or maybe hearts for Valentine's Day!
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
