Tips & Techniques Tuesday: Washi-Stickled Flower



Happy Tuesday, Stickle Lovers!  Karen N here from Craftily Yours, and today, I am super excited to show you a fun combination of washi tape and Stickles!

First, I started with a 1.5" circle and some washi tape.  I then wrapped and folded the washi around the circle.  When one row was done, I moved in a little and wrapped and folded some more.  Once I reached the inside, I just tore the washi tape off....and then fluffed up the edges a little.  The fabulous Tim Holtz has a video - HERE - if you are a video learner.


What Tim didn't do is to add some fabulous Stickles to adorn the flower!  I did!  I added a large glob in the middle and then used the tip that I dipped in the middle to lightly Stickle the edges.

When I was done and let it dry for quite a while, I have this cute, easy and sparkly flower...


I've been in a Christmas frame-of-mind for the last month or so, so I used my Xmas Red Stickle washi flower on a holiday card...



Don't ya just LOVE Christmas?! I know I do!

Craftily yours,

Karen
