Spools of Creativity…

Hi, it’s Beth. First, we must establish that I can’t sew my way out of a paper bag. But I have this odd obsession with all things sewing. Recently I bought a set of five vintage wooden spools, and this is what I’ve done with them.

Spools of Creativity by Beth PingryI love (sigh) the Curtain Call papers (and well, all of the papers) from Graphic 45. The patterns lend themselves to so many different projects, with a nice mix of patterns and images in many sizes.

I gathered the many sizes of wooden spools I had and started trimming, wrapping and winding the different patterns.

The paper is easily formed and holds it shape, so I only needed a few spots of E-Z Runner® Permanent Fine Adhesive on each spool. The toppers, which include a button, a metal embellishment and spiral turned wire, are held in place with the new Crafty Foam Tape.  The Crafty Foam tape allows me to cut the exact size I need!
