A Spool of Dreams

Hello, my crafty friends!  I wanted to share a little project with you to show you all some of the creative ways you can use the wonderful trims and patterned papers available at Classy Cards 'N Such.  For this project, I used a wooden spool that I had left over from some twine that I had purchased from Papertrey Ink.  I covered it with a strip of patterned paper from the Simple Stories Summer Fresh 6x6 Paper Pad.  I adhered everything to the spool using the 1/8" Scor-Tape which is a wonderful adhesive for all types of projects because it holds everything in place perfectly and permanently!  Next, I used two of the DARLING trims from Classy Cards 'N Such including the Yellow Floral Trim at the top, and the Natural Trim at the bottom of the spool.  I used a toothpick to make my banner coming out of the spool by hot gluing it in.  The actual tag itself is also cut from the Simple Stories Summer Fresh 6x6 Paper Pad.  I added some baker's twine, a felt heart, a Simple Stories flower sticker, a rub-on sentiment from Melissa Frances, and a mini pearl accent.  The edges of the tag are touched lightly with Tim Holtz Bundled Sage Distress Ink.  The Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads are all on clearance right now in the store.  Aren't these trims from Classy Cards 'N Such just lovely?  You won't be disappointed with any of them - they're SO versatile.  And....don't forget that you are welcome to use  Coupon Code KAREN-10 to save 10% on all your orders at Classy Cards 'N Such.
