Have you checked out Papertrey Ink’s newest release?! It may be my favorite yet! Full of garden-y goodness and fabulous fruits (can you tell that alliteration is a favorite of mine!?)
After looking through the design team’s projects, I was inspired to create something fruity.
Enter: the current CAS-ual Friday challenge.
This week’s challenge is to use buttons and twine in a clean and simple creation.
Now, typically, buttons and twine are used as embellishments in cardmaking. Never being one to follow directions, I took this challenge as an opportunity to use buttons and twine in a wacky sorta way.
- With my fingers, I rubbed craft glue onto a length of twine. Then I wrapped the still-tacky twine onto a skewer.
- Within 15 minutes the twine was firm and I removed it from the skewer. I had to wiggle the skewer a bit, since the twine had adhered to it. The result was a perfect little “twine vine” for my bunch of grapes!
