Hello everyone! Today I’m going to share a few projects I’ve done recently using the Dimestore Vogue Sheets and Tags. The more I work with these papers the more I realize how much I’m loving the option of being able to use them as “larger” sheets as well as for 12×12 layouts. I can make things like these pinwheels, much larger without having to piece papers together. I just cut one long strip and I’m ready to start folding.
I used the “Tinted Tapes” on some of the plain wood dowels instead of painting them. On the others, I cut strips of the Dimestore Vogue papers, and wrapped them around the dowels (barber pole style).
The foil paper was great for making this little pretty. The paper was heavy enough to hold the bow shapes really well.
On some of my pinwheels I used Stickles on the edges, which make me think of a little tip I could share with you all here. I had seen this done years ago and I have stored mine like this ever since. Actually you can store wet glues, paints, etc. this same way. I try to utilize every inch of space in my studio, so this is how I did mine. I found a metal try at the $ store, (but a metal, pan, tray, cookie sheet etc. would work as well) I screwed it to the wood shelf just above my work table. I then attached magnets to the bottoms of the bottles. (I used my “cool temp” glue gun for this). Now all you have do is hang all your bottles up onto the tray by the magnets. Everytime you go to reach for one.. they will be ready to go. No holding them upside down, tapping and squeezing .. waiting for the product to work it’s way to the tip… it’s already there! Cool huh?
Okay.. before I close, … here is a card I made, using the same line.
Happy Creating everyone! Enjoy the day!
