i also chose a "headline" card from the collection as the main element of the hanger and sanded the heck out of that too.
while the flower petals dry, it's a good time to braid the hanger. using "stone", "cappuccino" and "buttercream" twine, cut 5 strands of each color ~14" long. keep each color bundled together, and tie a knot at one end, leaving a bit as the "tassel". then braid the entire length leaving about 2" at the end to tie a knot, but don't tie it yet.
assemble the card, layering the "home" element on top of the blue paper, then onto a 4"x5 3/4" paper that's been sanded and inked with "iced spruce" distress ink. punch two regular-sized holes in the top corners of the card. feed through the braid so your knot is on the card front, then thread through the loose end of the braid, and tie it off leaving the knot and a tassel on the front of the card.
i hope you were inspired today to make good things - things for home and hearth. don't forget to leave a comment below so you're entered to win this fabulous prize.
