From Rubber Bubbles to rubber balls, I used this fun Queen & Co. embellishment to tell the story of my young daughter’s obsession with balls. I also worked Paper Twine in, which was just right for creating a bouncing path.
To bring on the bounce, I used a die from the Birthday Bash Kit as a curved template and traced lines on the back of my layout. With the lines drawn, I stitched the ball’s bounce using the Paper Twine. It is surprisingly easy to stitch with the Paper Twine, as it easily flattens down to fit through the eye of a needles. Nice!
To create the ball, I recruited some help. My mathematically inclined handy man placed the Rubber Bubbles in place on a punched circle and even went so far as to Dremel some of the pieces in half for a more realistic effect. He’s so cute!
Do you ever find yourself without large letters for a title? Here’s a quick way to create them. First, draw the letters on patterned paper using a pencil.
Next, stitch along your lines to create definition and texture. Once the stitching is complete, erase any visible pencil lines and trim around the letters for a quick, handmade alpha.
I hope this idea puts a little bounce in your creative step. Thanks for rolling by. ;)
