Fun Ways to Use Fringe Trim - On a Tote and a Card!

I just love fringe, and the colors and varieties that Expo International has is amazing!!!   I used the same fringe in 2 very different ways, one on a summer tote bag and the other in a card!  Lets start with the tote first.



Here is a video on how to make this fun fringe summer tote.



Simple supplies needed to make this toe, a couple of fun trims from Expo International, fabric glue, and a jute tote!!  



I used the shanti 2"multi color fringe paired with the 4" chainette trim in gold layered on top of each other on the Parker bar handle tote bag.  



I took some of the fun gold fringe left over and decided to see how it would work on a boho card.  I paired it with some washi tape feathers I made and it turned out super cute!!


Here is the video on how I made the card



I start with making the washi feathers first.



1) Start with some crafting wire add a strip of washi tape to right down the middle.



2) Fold over the washi tape over on itself and the wire.



3) Trim the top and bottom to make a feather shape.



4) Using scissors fringe out the tape to make it look like a feather.



Here is the batch I made for the card.  Details on how to make them wider in the video!



I then layered the trio of feathers over the flower with a little of the gold Expo Trim under it for a fun boho layered flower competel with a vintage button on top.



You do not need much of anything else going on in this card since the boho flower with the fringe and feather steals the show!!



Now you must check out all the other fun project that the Designers Crafts Connection (DCC) team has created using Expo Trim, they are so cool!!  Here is the full list of all the designers and blogs.
