Everything ABC’s Blog Hop (Letter F)

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!  For this hop we will be featuring the letter F. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their F element will be featured in their post.

If you came from Tonya Whitehurst – Heart & Soul Scrappers then you’re on the right track!

Fabric Wreath by Wendy Kessler

For the letter F, I chose FABRIC.  I created this wreath by cutting fabric into 1″ x 6″ strips.  I reshaped a wire clothes hanger into a circle and tied the strips around the outside until it was full.  The CTMH Chantilly fabric was the perfect colors for a spring wreath and one package was just the right amount.

Dance Treat Tubes

Dance Treat Tubes by Wendy Kessler

I made these goodies for this weekend’s dance competition.  I used the Cricut to cut the letters (not sure which cartridge) and the Close to My Heart Aspire stamp set.  The treat tubes are also CTMH.  I attached the letters with micro glue dots and they are holding well.  The grosgrain ribbon is attached with a 1-inch glue line to hold it in place and then tied.  Names will be written on the back of the dancer tag.  My first filler choice was Sixlets in the dance colors (available at Walmart) but my daughter preferred Skittles.  Another option would be to fill them with a variety of dance items like bobby pins, hair ties, etc.
