You Rock!


Hello friends, Jennifer here to share a tag with you that I made with this month's Old School kit, as well as a tutorial on that little tassel tied to the top!  These little tassels are so fun and easy to make and they'll be perfect to add to your upcoming holiday projects!
I wrapped the twine from the kit around a medium sized shipping tag - you can also use a piece of cardboard or heavy cardstock.  The size of the tassel will depend on the width of the cardboard used.
Pull the wrapped twine off of the cardboard and use a piece of twine to tie a knot in the center.  This piece of twine will be the "hanger" so the length is up to you.
 
Pull the loops together and snip them to make the tassel.  Keep the two ends of the center knot together so you can use them to tie it on to something.
 
To finish the tassel, I tied a piece of twine around the base, which gives it a bit of a broom look.  I tied it to the tag finishing it with a little bow.

All of the supplies except for the shipping tag can be found in this wonderful kit!  I hope you have a chance to get one because I just know you'll love it!
Thanks for visiting today!

Pin It!
