Well, today is Day 2 over on the Imaginisce blog revealing projects using the new i-top 2.0 tool. If you haven't checked it out you must head on over there to the blog because there's some great projects posted yesterday & today. There will be more the rest of the week as well.
Here's what I created with my tool. They are Thanksgiving napkin rings.
Take a strip of patterned paper (approx. 2" x 9") and accordian fold the paper.
Cut a piece of cardstock (1 1/2" x 7 1/2") or whatever width you'd like, make some scored lines along the outside edges. Sand those scored lines (I'm using Core'dinations cardstock so this leaves a wonderful finished look). Then gently bend the cardstock into a 'ring' shape and adhere the ends together slightly overlapping about 1 1/2-2" of cardstock.
Adhere the accordian folded piece of patterned paper to the cardstock napkin 'ring'. You may need to use a little bit of adhesive in the center to keep that part down as well.
Use the i-top 2.0 to cover and extra large brad (34mm) and a slightly smaller sized brad (22mm). Cover with patterned paper.
I took a pair of pliers and snipped off the brad 'prongs' or whatever you want to call them. What was left I bent in and then used some Glue Arts Adhesive squares to adhere the brad to the center of the accordian folded piece of paper.
To make the head of the turkey I punched out 2 small white cardstock circles (regular hole punch (1/4"), a heart shape punch from patterned paper and 2 small black Glam Rocks. I adhered the black Glam Rocks to the white circles using my i-rock. I adhered the 'eyes' to the orange covered brad & then I cut out a triangle shaped piece of cardstock which I adhered below the eyes. The heart I turned upside down and adhered that behind the bottom edge of the orange covered brad.
The finished product.
After created the face of the turkey I used a couple Glue Arts Adhesive Squares to adhere the 'head' to the 'body' of the turkey.
And there you have it - turkey napkin rings! Voila!
