I can't even believe that it's Pinterest Challenge time again! This actually couldn't have come at a better time, because the day that I was planning on completing this little craft, Katie and Sherry announced the new challenge!
For those who don't know, the Pinterest Challenge is Katie Bower and Sherry Petersik's way of getting us to stop pinning and start doing! I was supposed to take something that I have pinned and recreate it in my own way. And so I did just that.
So here is the original:
It's a tree ornament that has an wedding invitation inside. It's a great way to do something with old wedding invitations!
I started by cutting up the invitations into strips. I used a paper cutter to get straight lines. I tried to make each strip have a line of words on it so that you can peep through the ornament and be able to see what some of them say!
Then I wrapped the strips around a pen and held them for a few seconds. They curled fairly easily. I did two ornaments, one with my own invitation and one with a friends. One thing I did find is that it worked better with thinner strips. This might be unavoidable though because basically your strip width depends on the font size on the invitation.
Rolling, rolling, rolling!
Do you see what I see? Oh look, she likes them too!
