Braided T-shirt bracelets

I just discovered these braided T-shirt bracelets on line a while ago and thought I would give them a try as I have acquired a small stash of scraps!! I really love the soft look of these ones and the feel is really nice too - comfortable!!  They stretch just enough so you can get them on and don't have to worry about losing them.
Here is a link to a tutorial if you are interested in making your own.  These will be fun as prizes for an event I will be attending this summer!!  I may make a few more in different colours!!
The perfect project for your favorite T-shirts who have had an accident or are worn through in a few places!!


Graduation card

We have a niece graduating from high school this month and so I made her a card!!
I started with a white card front, layered some black and added the graphic gold metallic decorative paper.  I created the greeting using Corel Draw and included a cap I downloaded from CLKER.  It has a tassel in the original but I wanted to add a real one so I removed it from the digital image before I printed it.  The greeting is patterned after one I saw on a card on Splitcoast Stampers - I changed the fonts and the wording to suit what I wanted it to say.  After laser printing it I watercoloured the cap using black watercolour and added a gold tassel (gold embroidery thread) with a tiny gold brad.  I layered the greeting on black and included a strip of gold embossed mesh which I flagged on the bottom end.
