Grab your broom!

I saw these cute broomsticks and could not wait to make one.....or five!  They are so quick & easy.  We had a lot of fun making these at today's Stop-N-Stamp class.

How about a tutorial?

STEP 1:  Cut a piece of Designer Series Paper to 2-1/2" x 12".  Mark a line across at 1-1/2".

STEP 2:  Place a piece of sticky strip above the line, from end to end of the DSP.

STEP 3:  Cut random fringe along the top and bottom edge, cutting all the way to the sticky strip. 

STEP 4:  Place a Twizzler or pencil into a 1" x 8" cellophane bag & seal shut.  Peel the sticky strip from the DSP and begin wrapping the DSP around the cellophane bag as shown.

BroomfinalSTEP 6:  Wrap a piece of linen thread around the broom and add a tag.  My tag was created with the Bootiful Occasions stamp set---the greeting says "Grab your broom, cast your spell, and shake your booty."  The greeting was punched out with the scallop oval punch, and a piece of tangerine tango cardstock that was punched with the large oval punch was layered behind it.
