I've had these Vintage wooden spools that are about 7" tall and it just hit me today that they might make a great holder for some of my handmade paper tape. I know there is a lot of paper tape out there but it just never seems to be in the style I want. I wanted some done in some original ledger paper so I made it today. All I did was cut strips and ran it through the little Xyron "X" machine that is 1.5 inches wide. I also made some with some license plate cardstock and then tried it with Vintage wallpaper. They all turned out great. I just took the film off and left it on its backing and rolled it onto the Vintage wooden spool. I like how it turned out. Might have to do some different designs on another spool.
This is how it looked with the thread on them.........
This is how it looked with the tape on one of them. It holds three different designs.
That's it for today. Hope you have a great afternoon/evening wherever you are.
I am a mixed media artist and dabble in all kinds of art. The most important thing to know is that I am a big thrift store, swap meet, bargain hunter for art supplies and will definitely be telling about it on my blog. Back in 1994 my Mom got me into rubber stamping but I quickly went from that to decorating papers, making journals, working with acrylic paints, doing found object jewelry and altered art. My creative life really changed after attending art retreats like ArtFest, Art and Soul and Art Unraveled. I now do a little of everything.
This was my favorite doll who had red hair just like my Mom so I named her Juanita. This will date me but this picture was taken around 1950. I am sitting at the front of the home that my father built in Canby, Oregon. I still have her to this day and she still looks as good as new. I think everyone was really shocked that she stayed in such good condition as I don't think I was that careful with other toys. Lots of special memories since my Mom is gone now.
