!Would you like some Spirelli?

Well I know we’ve all seen this technique, but at a Stampin Up meeting yesterday we made this really neat card using the Spirelli string method and I thought I’d make one to show you something new!

 Here’s the card I made and you can see each flower has Spirelli string art on it.

I used about 36 inches of white cotton crochet cord (I actually used a purple stamp pad to color the bigger flower’s cord). First tape the cord on the back of your piece.  Then wrap the cord to the fourth pump and wrap.  Then wrap from one valley to the left to four bumps over. Then wrap from one valley to the left to four bumps over and repeat.  Keep going until you get back to the starting point and tape the string tothe back.

I remember doing this technique when I was younger, but with mails hammered on either side of a board.  There’s some great instructions in the March addition of the Card Maker magazine.  Can’t wait to see what you’ll make with this techique!  Have a Magical Day!!
