Hello there! I don't know about you, but I love to get crafty with scissors. There are so many possibilities even with regular straight edged scissors. I have a fun project to share with you today on how I made these cute fringe pencils and fringe card.
To make them you'll need….
- patterned papers
- straight edged scissors or fringe scissors
- sticky tape
- washi tape
To create my fringe pencils I started by cutting my paper to measure 8 1/2 x 3 and I folded it in half before cutting slits with straight edged scissors. Next I used double sided super sticky red tape to adhere them to each pencil. At the base of the fringe, I added washi tape to hold everything in place.
To create my card I used leftover fringe pieces and layered them starting at the bottom of the card and working up. Next, I added a floral sticker strip and a piece of washi tape. I added a die cut phrase (hello) on top. I used foam tabs to adhere a star die cut to give it a little dimension. I finished up by adding a wood button and a phrase tag.
I hope you enjoyed my project today and are inspired to get crafty with scissors. These fringe pencils and card are just perfect to brighten someone's day.
