What To Do With Some String...

The Pixie Dust Studios challenge this week is asking for a

Shaped Card

So here is one I made! It is not particularly practical as it won't stand up unaided but it sure will stand out from a crowd! I've used one of the digi images from Dreams Come True cd from Funky Hand - you can enlarge the images to A4 size with no loss of quality and then I've printed the backing paper from the same cd over the top.

After cutting it out, I used some of the offcuts and made extra dots which have been added randomly over the parcel after their edges have been inked.

The jute string has been added to the handles - I cut smallish lengths and then wound them around the handles, joining pieces by knotting them together and leaving the knot showing.

As I couldn't get the string right to the centre of the bow, I cut two different sized circles from left overs, layered them then added a bow tied with the same string to hide it all!
