1. Adhere a piece of ledger paper to tag.
2. Add WISH ticket to the bottom of tag.
3. Free-hand cut (yes, you can do it) a scallop border from a scrap of vintage music paper. Adhere to bottom edge of tag.
4. Add crochet lace at top edge of paper.
5. Cut a piece of cheesecloth approximately 2 x 15” long.
| Run a basting stitch to gather fabric. |
NOTE: We stitched ours a bit off center so that when you fold it in half one side is longer than the other.
|Pull the basting stitch to gather fabric.|
|Fold in half lengthwise at the stitching line.|
|Use a thick craft glue to adhere to chipboard ring. I used a ring instead of a solid circle so the brown striped ribbon could poke up through the ring (see step #8 ). Let dry. You can use a piece of heavy cardstock or interfacing in place of the chipboard ring.|
6. Pinch wide stripe May Arts ribbon in half and secure with wire. Trim ends.
|circle is 1 1/4" wide|
|Wrap wire around the end of the twig. Using needle nose pliers, bend the wire toward the longer end of the stick.|
|Thread 3 pearls or beads onto wire (they can be different sizes).|
|Bend the wire back towards the twig, wrap around twig to finish off.|
12. Weave a small piece of crochet lace (same as we used on the tag), onto the bottom of the twig. Gather so the lace is bunched under the wire. Wrap ribbon No. 2 around twig, below the lace and tie a one loop bow.
|The ribbon secures the lace by sandwiching it between the wire and ribbon.|
|Use liquid glue to add to center of circle. In the photo, the end of the stick is hidden behind the ribbon.|
Okay, that's it for today.
On Wednesday, the much anticipated #7 - Crowned Wings tag.
See you then!
