Fabric scraps, scrapbook paper/cardstock, ribbon, washi or paper tape
Fabric and/or craft glue
paddle wire (or other kind of floral wire)
The process is pretty simple. Cut out strips to desired length, cut some paddle wire and fold in half (if desired), line the fabric with glue and fold over. You could also lay an additional layer of fabric on the top but be sure you are thorough with sealing it closed with glue.
With washi tape I just folded it over and it stuck together.
Did that even require mentioning?
And of course with paper, I used craft glue but a very thin layer to seal it closed. I found if I made it too gooey, the paper would soften and tear.
I decided to wrap these cute coasters and use a coordinating twist tie. I got on the bandwagon of these fun tile coasters made with mod podge and scrapbook paper and seriously...the easiest craft on the planet. And such an awesome result. The ceramic tiles cost me 16¢ at Home Depot and I used paper I had on hand.
And sorry to be so blog absent lately. I have 2 more deadlines by Thanksgiving to meet and I am rushing to get them done. I will fit a few more goodies in through Thanksgiving so I hope and pray you are up on your blog reading!
I will be...we literally have NO PLANS FOR THANKSGIVING! Ours kind of changed last minute. One of you can invite me over and I will bring a yummy dessert. Maybe an apple cream cheese tart from Martha that I have made for YEARS. It is truly a blissful caloric experience.
Oh and if you have flyer miles for a family of four that would help too.
And clothes for cold winter if you live where it cold.
And maybe a lesson on etiquette since I am asking myself to your Thanksgiving.
I'm done now.
