Sweater Trim Pom Pom Tag

 Here's another project that my ladies made at my Tags, Bags & Boxes class.  It's a super sweet snowman tag.  The fun part about this tag is the pom pom made from the awesome sweater trim!  I think some of my ladies didn't like the pom pom but with a little patience they come out adorable!  I need to make some more this weekend….I have some trim left that probably won't look very good on spring cards!

  We used a tag made from the 2 Tags die and Crumb Cake cardstock.  Then it was embossed with the Northern Flurry embossing folder.

  The snowman from Snow Much Fun was stamped, colored in and bit of Dazzling Details added to his edges that you can't see in the photo.  He is punched out and mounted on a Garden Green scalloped circle.

  The pom pom is really easy….along the same lines as a fork bow.  Just wrap the sweater trim around the tines of a serving fork about 15-20 times.  Then take another length of trim and thread it between the center tine at the top and the bottom so it goes around the trim you wound around the fork.   Tie it really tight in a knot and then slide the trim off of the fork.  You'll have loops on both sides of the knot, just use sharp scissors to cut the loops.  Then fluff and shape the pom pom.  You'll get some shedding (I thought it looked like something bad had happened to a muppet in my stamp room!) and you'll probably have some longer strands, just trim those down with scissors. Ta-da!!  A pom pom!

  So much to do, so little time!  Have a great day!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
