up, up & away – First Posted: Monday, February 15, 2010

I have a kite digi for you today. A little confession from me…I save the pieces of ribbon that I cut from my bow tails, yep, I’m that frugal ha ha. Well if you are like me and can’t bear to throw your little pieces away then kite tails will be the perfect use of them.

I printed my image onto white cardstock and as I wanted a harlequin kite I printed it onto 2 different papers too. I cut out the sections from the patterned paper that I wanted to use and paper pieced them onto my white card. I die cut my white card with the largest Labels One and sponged it with blue ink before removing the die to give a white border. I punched pairs of holes with my big bite down the string of the kite and threaded different colour ribbons and tied into a simple knot to make the kite tails.
