Tag: Twine - Thank You SEW very much!

And all the craftsmen among the workmen made the tabernacle with ten curtains.
They were made of fine TWINEd linen and blue and purple and scarlet yarns,
 with cherubim skillfully worked.
Exodus 36 : 8


Welcome to Thursday Totally Tags ‘n’ ATCs over at!  Every Thursday we on the Design Team will do a team post featuring Tags n' ATC's.  We will have a specific Theme each week featuring an element, technique or embellishment.  We’ll all come up with something excitingly different – using various types of tools, etc. to create our projects...i.e., Cricut, CAMEO, Spellbinders, punches, stamps, paint, material, lace, inks, etc.   The sky's the limit!  The only restriction...  If we use SVG's or Digi's, we will only use those from the vast selection at PCW.

Spring is a time of "new beginnings" and we love to see things "take root, blossom and grow”, we decided it was a good time to announce some changes to our Challenges and Link Ups.  Here is the link to Melin’s explanation of how things will work now.  Be sure to pop over there and be included in the creative fun! 

The Theme for this week’s projects is TWINE!  As I have been sewing since I was about 9 – back in the Pre-Paleolithic Era ! – I thought I’d use that aspect in combination with my paper-crafting this week.  I made a ‘spool of thread’ Tag – with the Twine representing the thread.  Here it is –

*  I cut two of the spool shape .svg from cream parchment cardstock, a file which I’ve had for ages and I don’t know from whence it came.  I wrapped Taupe/WhiteTwine around one piece and then adhered the other piece to the back of it, so there is a place to write a note on the back.  

*  I used the ‘5 pt. Flower’ from the MPC ‘Birdcage and Flower set cf’ for the focal point flower.  It’s cut from cream cardstock and the edges were inked in light blue.  The center is dark brown (Daisy Punch) with a gold brad. 

*  I made a beige Rolled Rose from lace hem binding and added a light blue gem to the center.

*  The flowers are laid on a bed of (MS) punched leaves and branches cut from hunter green/white polka dot paper.

*  I printed the sentiment in dark brown on light blue cardstock – using the ‘Heart Sweet Heart’ font (Cross-stitch).  I used ‘Thank You SEW very much!’  Other choices I had in my list of possibilities were: 
**  You are SEW thoughtful!
**  I am SEW Thankful for You!
**  I love You SEW much!

*  I added some strands of the twine in the hole of the spool and tied them.

Have You made any interesting Tags recently?  I’d love to see them!  Let me know if you have any questions about anything I’ve done here or on any other blog post -  Blessings until next time!

Thanks for visiting here today!  I hope you take a few minutes to check all of the Tag/ATC creativeness on the other blogs, too!    Melin should have a Free File for today on her blog, also!  I’ll Update and have the file here as soon as it’s posted over there -  

Be sure to remember MPC for all of your Cutting and Digital files.  Tomorrow is our Digi Dessert Fridaze post, every other Tuesday is a Cutting File post and in between I may post some other projects. 

B’ Bye!
