This week's challenge at Just A Scrappin is
CHEERLEADING and add some bling!
Had no idea what I was going to do with this one until I remembered Hello Kitty Greetings has a Hello Kitty Cheerleader! I of course had to do my Buckeye colors. I bleed Scarlet and Gray!!
I think this would be a really cute birthday card for a girl or an adorable card to send to your daughter away at college. OSU of course! lol.
I also did a tutorial on how I created her pom-poms
I started with my scarlet and gray twine, also known as Maraschino and Stone. And a fork
I wrapped the twine around the fork, I think 5 or 6 times in this case
I took another piece of twine and wrapped it around the middle through the tines of the fork
and tie a knot
then trim all the ends so they are even with the sides of the fork
cut the side loop of the twine. It can be a tight fit. It is better to stick your scissors in the loops while still on the fork, then pull it off one side and cut. if you pull it off then try to stick your scissors in the loops it will be hard to get them all without fraying your twine. It can be done, just not as easily.
Then it looks like this
then you just scunch up both ends
I used Beacons to glue them onto my Hello Kitty
and now you have cute color coordinated pom-poms! After the glue dries you can also trim the edges if you have 1 random long string somewhere.
The paper is from Echo Park and I inked the edges in Maraschino Cherry from Quick Quotes. I added a banner cut from Pretty Pennants and silver stickles in middle of them. One last glitter bling I had in my stash and your done!
I hope you enjoy my card this week and join us at Just a Scrappin!
Think outside the box if you have to on this one.
Cheerleader can also be a card or layout done in your school colors.
Or a layout with a school spirit title
Or you supporting a friend/family during a fundraiser. (think walk for the cure) or a marathon!
Hope that helps give you some ideas to play along!
Check back next Thursday for our next challenge!
