010416 CKC January Forgeries Tutorials

Well, this was definitely a very fun collection of embellishments to forge!
You may remember that I chose the Scarlet Lime October 2015 Planner Kit.

Let's try the tassels first.
The larger one was made with yarn.
I was blessed to inherit my dear Aunie's craft stash, so yarn I have in abundance.

The smaller tassels were finer, and wrapped with golden thread.
I used a full skein of embroidery floss & I didn't even take the packaging off!

Simply threaded a 7 Gypsies (I think) trinket safety pin through either end,
slid the paper holders to the center, tied off the heads of the tassels
at each end, then simply cut the full skein in half! Couldn't have been easier.

 Next  I made some tabs from the patterned papers.
I used the negative of an October Afternoon sticker for a template.

I will add an appropriate word or sentiment when I use them.

Finally I pulled this stuff to work on some Project Life cards.

Something new from Tim Holtz: Idea-ology Small Talk stickers.

Hope you find something in the inspiration kits
that sparks you to create your own custom version.
We're all about the counterfeits at CKC!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. You never fail to amaze me with the simple techniques that you use to create such fabulous forgeries!

  2. These are wonderful (as usual)! I think I'll be on the lookout for that rainbow embroidery floss the next time I'm at the craft store...

  3. Fantastic forgeres :) Love the tassels and the cute PL cards ;0

  4. Cool ideas, I really like the idea of using a full skein of floss.

  5. The full skein is a fabulous idea - would never have thought of that! Great forgeries as always that show how to really maximise your stash. Great job!
