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.

Broomwrap2STEP 5:  Flare out the ends of your broom by lightly tapping it onto a flat surface.

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.


Are you ready to whip up some brooms?  Here is what you'll need:
