40 spools

IMG_4995b_1600

I recently learned that a friend had a 40th birthday coming up.  I know this person is passionate about sewing and so I wanted to create something special to give to her as a gift.  I used a Quickutz 2×2 spool die-cut and created these out of 40 different colors of paper and framed it after assembly.  I think it turned out pretty neat even though I didn’t leave quite enough of a border around the edges for framing properly.

Cranking out each spool twice — once for the khaki colored spool pieces and then once for the thread color — was tedious but therapeutic in a weird way.  All worth it in the end.
