Whisker Graphics Day

For today's post I tried something completely out of my comfort box, but I had to try it anyway.  Making feathers out of twine!

Kind of fun.

To make these, here is a little tutorial;

Wrap the twine around a piece of cardboard.  Cut one edge for even pieces.

Using a pipe cleaner, knot each piece around it, one after one.  It's time consuming, but kind of relaxing at the same time ;).  

Once done, trim in a feather shape.  To keep the shape, I sprayed starch over the completed "feather" and let it dry over night.

Then, I finished off by making a card.

What do you think?  Lots of texture, I'll say that....

I used the following Whisker Graphics products:


Thanks for stopping by~

Awesome card and I can see all that work on those twine feathers surely paid off. Not sure I would have the patience as I am more of an instant gratification type of person. But you really did great!
