My Cricut Craft Room theme for this Thursday was to use a Flower Cartridge. I chose Flower Shoppe. I wanted so badly to go crazy and add lots of flowers to this project but felt it only need a few to look nice. This was my first time using the cartridge. The flowers were easy to put together. I can see myself using this cart a lot in the future. For this project I used the <Scallop1> flower cut at 2" and 3".
I came across a Ribbon Spool Photo Holder project in the current issue of Northridge Publishings Signature Series magazine. I decided to give it a try. I changed mine up a bit cause well, that's what I do. lol I don't own a Harley but I got this paper on clearance quite awhile ago and came across it in my car the other day. Yes, it's been living in my car since for months. lol Now I just need to find some biker chick to give this to!
Wanna make one? Here's how:
Carefully remove the ends of the ribbon spool and cut two circles of paper at any size you like. Adhere a strip of paper around the middle of the spool. Punch a hole in one circle large enough for a dowel. This will be your top. Adhere a paper circle to each end of the spool. Paint a dowel and mini clothespin in a color that coordinates with your paper. Once dry, glue the clothes pin to the dowel. Put glue on the opposite end of the clothespin and insert it thru the hole pushing until it touches the bottom of the spool then embellish it any way you like. I didn't have a Harley Davidson embellishment to go with the paper so I found the image online, printed it out and hand cut it. I then adhered it with pop dots to give it some dimension, wrapped tulle around the bottom of the dowel before inserting it and finished it off with two flowers on the clothespin. The clothespin holds your favorite photo! You could even make one to hold recipes or greeting cards. The possibilities really are endless and it cost next to nothing to make.
