Hello and welcome back! I’m finally up to posting some of the projects I’ve done for Papertrey Ink’s 10th Anniversary Challenges, and just in the nick of time as they end tomorrow morning… so brace yourselves for a rash of posts. : )
The Papertrey March Blog Hop Challenge is to use embroidery on paper. These are a couple of the inspiration photos. I have done very little embroidery, so I just used a few basic stitches on my paper spring flowers and matching felt key fob – nothing like amazing work of Izziyana Suhaimi in the inspiration photos above.
I don’t have a die for a to-go coffee cup, so I used a flower pot instead – I bet you wouldn’t’ve known if I hadn’t told ya! I also up-cycled a Panera coffee sleeve and a Starbucks stirrer to finish it off. So far neither has complained about being used together. (Keep playing nice, you two!) You can’t tell from this pic, but bowing it over the stirrer gives the cup nice added dimension.
