Tando Same but Different Week

Helloooo lovely bloggers!  Every now and then the powers that be over at The Tando Creative Blog ask us all to work with the same product.  his time we are working with a very recently introduced type and that is Flexistrips.  These are 12inches long and are, as the name suggests, very flexible so that they can be stack around corners etc.  The are scored along the long edge too so that they can be folded easily to make them stand up. Great for using with our our 3D products. At the moment there is a choice of Fencing or Grass.  We have been given the grass version.  Here is what I did with mine...  I have made a trinket tray...



The base is a heart shape and I glued the strip around, cutting & folding the bottom as required.  I added some small beads around the inside to 'pretty' up the join and some ribbon round the outside to finish it off.  It actually looks far better in real life than the picture!  Here are pics of how the pieces come...





Do pop over to the blog and see what else these handy strips could be used for, thank you for looking, HUGS xxx

Karen, I love the way you have used your flexistrip grass! Your heart tray is very cute surrounded like that... I'm ashamed because I didn't understand that the score in the middle of the long edge aimed to fold the grass easily haha, I just cut it arghhhh!!! :) Hugs Coco xxx
