Tickled Pink ... and Purple ... and Teal!

There are feathers all over the place at the moment and I think they're a really fun addition to all kinds of projects, so I thought I'd have a go at making some myself ...


... I got the idea from Mardi who made a gorgeous feather with washi tape and twine to embellish the beautiful page she made for the January 1-2-3 Challenge.

I thought this was a brilliant idea, so I had a go with these wonderful brightly coloured Scotch Expressions Tapes, which I won on the Scrap365 Blog ...


... I also used some cocktail sticks and a pair of scissors, but that's all! Simples!
Here's what I did ...



Cut a length of tape, place it sticky side up, then add a cocktail stick as shown.


Put another length of tape over this, sticky side down and press together well, so that the stick is sandwiched between two pieces of tape as shown.


Cut into a feather shape and snip notches into the edges here and there.


Fringe the edges as shown, then fold upwards to give a more three-dimensional effect.

Easy-peasy huh?!

Thanks for popping in - see you again soon :o)
