EBTKS Challenge 12 - String

String, sewing, fabric... it's all hot right now. Or maybe just in my craft room, but I'm loving it all right now. And because of that I just loved the challenge Winter came up with!
And it really can be any string around your house! I tried to think of ways to use string outside of sewing, and here's what I came up with:
I know I've seen this done somewhere, but for the life of me I can't remember. But if one of you lovely blog readers know who I can give credit to. I would love to give that person some credit!

****EDIT**** Thanks to my friend Kay... I'm pretty sure I got the inspiration from the fabulous Betsy here.

Basically I made a circle with brads and just roped my string around. I think it turned out to be a super fun card.


This month's sponsor is The Digi Chick! The options are really endless of things you can get there! So break out some string from around the house and come play! And you won't want to miss what the other girls have been working on. Check it all out here.

Courtney, this is awesome!!! It reminds me of those plaques we'd make in grade school art where you'd wrap the string around the nails and create cool patterns....there's a name for them but I can't think of it.

This is so much fun, Courtney! It totally reminds me of something I would make in summer camp when I was a little girl. Except you're looks much better! LOL! I LOVE IT! This really makes me smile! ♥♥ Kay

Very creative for the challenge! I don't know for the life of me why I don't participate in the EBKS challenges. I will this week for sure. I have floss running out my ears. :)

Yes, it is Betsy...you are correct.
