Because I love all things vintage and I love shabby chic but can't afford to buy the real thing, I decided to try to create my own spools. This is definitely an upcycle project.
I cut the toilet paper tubes and then rolled them smaller, using my Sookwang tape. Then covered the tubes with the ads I had worked on. I cut out two circles out of cardboard, and glued paper to them. Inked the edges, added the Coats and Clarks Labels on the top and the old timey labels on which I wrote twill, cotton and satin.
Voila! Instant vintage spools.
What do you think?
Bye for now.
