Default What do you do with the thickest twill tape?

I love twill tape. A demo used it on some of her stamp a stack cards and I'm hooked. (they do that on purpose don't they). I also love it in the idea book samples.

But I don't know what to do with the thickest twill tape, and since I can just buy the medium and small ones I can't justify the purchase unless I know what to do with it.

So what do you do with it? I only do cards right now, not scrapbooking- and I don't need any new belts

You can probably search the gallery for twill tape and see some good ideas. But one thing you can do is make bookmarks with it. Just stamp on it, cut to length, fray the ends a little and there you go.

I haven't used the widest size on any of my cards, so I have no great original ideas for it. I do think it's neat to stamp on the twill tape though, so I'm sure it would be great to add a stamped layer of twill tape to many cards.

It makes beautiful bookmarks! Stamp with the chalk or craft inks and heat set with an iron after they are dry.

Here are some samples of things I tried to do w/the thick twill tape on cards...
Card Belt
Card Pashmena

Also, have you considered trading for something else w/someone who'd love to have the large twill?

I could never find a way to use this on a card so just recently we stamped a length of it and used it for a gag gift. We turned it into a guitar strap for a mini guitar for the HS band director.

I used in only once and I've had it ablout 8 months. I stamped one of the square stamps from one of the new hostess sets. It fit perfectly, and I just frayed the raw edges a little. I plan to play with it a little more

I just uploaded a notebook last night that I used the thickest twill tape on, this was the first time I had used some, but it fit really well on here.

I like using jumbo wheels on the thickest twill tape. You can make it a great accent on a card rather than using a thick strip of paper.

Thanks so much for the ideas.

I loved some of the cards that were shown (I couldn't see many, they must be in demo or subscriber galleries).

I guess i'm sold on twill tape

When you stamp on twill tape, can you use classic inks or should you use craft? I only have classic inks and would only be using it in card-making, not scrapbooking.

Sara, you can use either one

In my experience I use craft because I get better coverage on the twill, but both inks will work.

I have had the twill for over a year now and haven't touched it yet. But now I am so inspired!! I think for Mother's Day, I am going to be asked to be locked in my stamp room for my gift - after brunch of course!! Thanks for the great ideas!

Oh my goodness, Soni! What a fantastic idea!! I'm going to hang some up, but instead of adhesive, I'm gonna use mini clothespins, so I can change them, depending on the season!!

TFS your great idea!!

I did a card at a workshop that used the mummy from the halloween set from the last holiday mini. We frayed the edges, so it really did look like it was mummy cloth. (not that I ever seen a mummy (: )

Wonderful Words fits beautifully on it across the bottom of the card.
