I hope to inspire you with this theme of
My Vintage Valentine
I made the Vintage Corsage for a swap over at
I thought I would share it with you all.
This was fun to make. I cut a heart out of Chipboard and painted it with Tim Holtz's Distress Crackle Paint in Worn Lipstick, I glued a heart doily and I found a valentines pick at Michael's. I made a ribbon and tulle bow. The book text rosette I cut from a Tim Holtz die and I put Stickles ( Platinum-My favorite color with doing vintage stuff) on the edge. I found the vintage valentines tag in my stash. I really don't know how old this is...LOL
My Vintage Valentine project is this little cone
I favor crepe paper trim. I love is stuff and I find it hard to find or to expensive so I make it myself. I found a vintage roll at a thrift/antique shop in the bay area.
I also use regular party streamers.
To make the Fringe, I layer about 4 or 6 sheets of the streamer and sew down the center. I crease it down the middle to help me sew it straight.
If I want it to be a smaller fringe, I sew about 1/2 " away from both edges
after sew one edge I flip it and do the other. Then I cut it down the center and I'm left with two strips. Now that I've sewed it it time to cut! This is time consuming
I fold the streamer in half where the seam is and cut 1/4" just into the center
This is the small fringe. I did the same but cut maybe just under ever 1/4"
Now that you have cut it it's time to fluff
it's easier to put it on your project and then fluff
To make the cone I used a 6"x6" square
Then cut from one end to another to create a half circle
Create your cone and hot glue it together.
hot glue the fringe to the top edge
glue the doily and I glued German Glass Glitter onto Maya Road chipboard pieces
I used seam binding for the handle
I hope you enjoyed my take of the
