Made to Measure

I’m back today with some more Vintage Measuring Tape love. One of the cards I designed for Maya Road for CHA Summer was this one featuring their beautiful Measuring Tape trims. I had this idea for making a fun fringed look with the ribbon and it turned out just as I had hoped.

To keep the trims in place, I used a Be Creative Adhesive Sheet and applied my ribbon lengths in rows. The overlapping ends of the ribbon aren’t adhered and I love how they curve slightly upwards for an interesting dimension to the design.

The burlap flower adds still more texture and makes a great place to pin on some additional embellishments.

If you’re looking for more measuring tape ideas, you may have missed this post.


Happy creating!
