Welcome to my BLOG today. It's the 25th, so time for the
Papertrey Ink September Blog Hop!!
The challenge was to "Wrap It Up". You can find the inspiration photo below but go here
for more details.
OH WHAT FUN!!! I still have many different ideas brewing in my head and this is only
one of them so be sure to hop around and check out all those talented people out there
So I decided I wanted to make some sort of wrap for a 3 wick candle from Bath and Body Works as I love to give these as teacher gifts. So I pulled out my Front and Center die and started cutting green felt that I have an abundance of this year. I die cut three of them and stitched the sides together on my sewing machine. The bottom formed a triangle on it's own by pulling them together at the base so I stitched those three sides until there was no longer a hole in the center. Much of the height was taken up when I did this so it worked out perfect for the shorter 3 wick candle.
I embellished using Leaf Prints Dies, Mat Stack 5 Layerz(with Bitty dot paper),Spring Moss and Simply Chartreuse CS, felt and buttons. Dark chocolate Ink and buttons. Wreath For All Seasons Stamp Set(Happy). Orange Zest Ink and a few other non PTI supplies were the twine and Close To My Heart Charm Alphabet Set. My sewing machine and thread of course.
Here is a close up below. I ended up flipping the leaf prints dies to get the reflection of them as well as the stamped sentiment image that Betsy showed us how to do on the MIM this week. What a fun technique that was too!
