For this week’s project for the Pootler’s Design Team I really wanted to make something which wasn’t a card. When I look at The Little Things stamp set and that striped stamp images of decorated pegs keep coming into my head (don’t ask me why) so decorated pegs is what I have made.
I stamped out the stripe stamp eight times in Emerald Envy because I felt like giving the pegs a bit of a festive vibe. I cut these out and adhered them to normal washing pegs front and back using tear and tape. I went with this option as I have plastic pegs and thought it would be the least messy.
I next stamped out the gingerbread men and the stars and then punched them out using the 3/4″ circle punch. I then punched four 1″ circles out of Real Red and stuck my stamped image onto them. Again fixing them onto the pegs using the tear and tape.
I have used these pegs to fasten up bags of sweets, which we have loads of in our house as my husband has a massive sweet tooth. They could also be used to fasten up other food bags in the kitchen. I may also make a few more and use them to fasten Christmas cards to some hung up ribbon.
Hope you enjoyed today’s project and join me next Thursday for another project using The Little things stamp set.
