St. Patricks Day Thread Spools Vintage Card Holders


Awhile back I attended a Creative Tea Time event. One of the crafts we created was called a "Spooky Spool" where we used vintage images and put them on top of spools. Well for St. Patrick's Day I thought I would recreate these cute spools using March images. 


I had gotten this great package of March paper ephemera from Gingham.bigcartel.com. She has these amazing retro kits, you should check them out. 



With a lot of my own stuff and I just started layering the paper till I was happy. :-) To get the image to stand up I hot glued alligator clips to the center of the spool and then hot glued the image to the clip. Hot glue just seemed to hold everything really strong. 

So now I have six little photos that are whimsical and just perfect for March. You could really do this with any of your vintage cars or even photos. The varying heights of the spools work for any shape or size. 

I hope this inspires you to create your own and please let me know if you do create your own version. As always, please let me know if you have any questions.
