A Graduation Tassel

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

My little cameraman was pretty disappointed that I’ve had to cancel all my classes and workshops I’ve had scheduled as he was so hoping we would earn the Disney incentive trip.  He has been my cameraman for just about a year now.  Last year when he found out the trip that we could earn was a trip to Disney he said you HAVE to earn this.  I told him it takes a lot of work and if he helped me we could possibly do it.  Well he has been working since last July being my cameraman and cutting out things with the big shot for classes and workshops whenever I needed the help.  Well as you know lately we’ve had some setbacks with my parent’s illnesses and my need to step away from my Stampin’ Up! business to care for my parent’s and family.   We are so close to earning the Disney trip but because I’ve had to put the business on hold my sales are way down.  In order to try to achieve this trip the cameraman and I are going to put out video tutorials which we hope you will find informative and helpful to create beautiful projects.  Some demonstrators charge a fee for the PDF files on making their projects but I like to share what I’ve learned along the way and all we ask is if you use our videos to create your projects we hope that you will submit an Online Order at my Stampin’ Up! website HERE.
In this first video I’m going to show you how to make a tassel for all the graduation projects we will be showing you in the next few days.

The floss I used to create the tassel was wrapped around 3 of my fingers about 16 times. The piece of floss used to tie the top was approximately 6″ and the second piece of floss that was used to create the top of the tassel was approximately 10″ long.

Again, thanks for your prayers and support. If you would be so kind as to place an Online Order if you use our tutorials that would be much appreciated.

    Thanks, Glenda. Your cameraman did an excellent job on this one! I’ll admit I don’t like making cards for open houses, but I’ve got a couple of ideas going now. TFS!
