The day my daughter was born was an uncharacteristically gloomy. But the moment she was born, it was as if I had my own little source of sunshine. I used the Cosmo Cricket 6x6 pads Upcycle, Social Club, and Salt Air. I inked the edges of the circles with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo. On the outer edges of the kraft paper, I used Pink Paislee Artisan Tape to create a frame of sorts.
For this week's theme of a DIY embellishment, I decided to decorate a manila tag to use as part of my title. I wrote out the word "sunshine" and then used a paper piercer to poke holes for hand stitching. After I was done stitching the title, I outlined it with more stitching in a different color floss. For my last DIY embellishment, I made a twine circle by punching out a circle from cardstock and covering it in adhesive (I used my Pink ATG). Then I knotted the end of twine and placed it in the center of the circle, twisting the twine all the way around itself until I was satisfied with the size of the circle. Then I trimmed the cardstock down and adhered my twine circle to the tag.
For an extra bit of flair, I did some random stitching with my sewing machine on two of the circles.
Thank you so much for looking! I can't wait to see all the DIY embellishments you all come up with. I'd love to learn a few new techniques. Have a wonderful weekend!
