Gift for a Friend

Today I want to share a gift I created for a friend.



On wooden clothespins I wound seam binding I had dyed with Glimmer Mist. The seam binding is 'Hug Snug' I purchased on Ebay. The Glimmer Mist colors I used are Candy Apple Red, Santa Baby, Vintage Pink, and Juneberry Wine. It was an easy process. I placed the white seam binding on my Ranger mat (for easy clean up) and sprayed the Glimmer Mist until I achieved the color I wanted. Wearing gloves (a must!) I tousled the seam binding to get complete coverage. I air-dried the seam binding and then wound it on the clothespin. The seam binding is perfect for cards, scrapbooking, and decorating gifts.

The tag was created from Vintage Street Market's 'Dimestore Vogue' collection. The collection has designer papers with sewing images, aqua foil paper, brown crepe paper, and paper embellishments. I also used some of Vintage Street Market's tinted tape (aged) on the tag. If you like sewing-theme papers or a nostalgic 40's/50's look, you will like Vintage Street Market's collections.

Hope you have a great day and there is sunshine where you are. Thanks for stopping by! LindaC
