A Little Something

Yo, yo! What up, dawg?

Tonight was the two-hour season premier of Bones, one of my favorite shows, so I grabbed my creative supplies and sat back for some TV and crafts.

I’ve been practicing my sewing and finally think I’ve figured out how to sew a yo-yo. Yes, this is a relatively simple exercise, but it took me some practice to figure out…sad, I know.

Tonight I made a bitty yo-yo fabric flower that I decided to put on a card. I cut a canvas circle and hand-stitched it to the front of my card. Next, I fussy cut some leaves from patterned paper and added my elements together to make this thank-you. I used patterned paper and Rip Strips from Tinkering Ink and foam Thickers from American Crafts.

It’s not much, really, but I am proud that I now have a new flower option to work into my paper crafting. Maybe next time I’ll make a bigger yo-yo flower (by cutting a larger circle) and add it to a layout or frame. Good times!
