Several years ago I did these little spools for a project for the Designing With series of books by Autumn Leaves. This is one of those projects that even 7 years later, I still enjoy. These were done with the idea that it would be a gift to a special friend. Kind of a cross between a mini book and a card. Paula has be
pushing encouraging me to make a Christmas version so she can tie them to the tops of packages....so I did and here is it...
Cut a piece of brown craft paper 8 1/2 x 11 to run through your printer. Arrange the words in strips on your paper to fit your spool. I decoupaged the ends of the spools with vintage 7gypsies tissue (I know, I'm a lucky girl to still have some!)
Glue or sew strips together and attach end to spool. Sew a piece fabric to the other end of paper strip.
A tag is inserted in hidden pocket.
If you would like to make your own spool card/mini book and would love all the materials and the formatting done for you, they will be available tomorrow in our Etsy shop. They are really lots of fun and with the formatting done, they are quick and easy.....a cute little something for a special someone.
