I started with these vintage subtraction flashcards (ironically, my math problems started early with never mastering subtraction), which I cut into file-folder shapes with the Penny Black "Tags &Toggles" die set.
You know I love my Dina Wakley paints, so I grabbed those and finger-painted some color onto my cards (highly therapeutic, by the way).
I picked up my sponges and my Distress Inks and rubbed some on. And yes, math was starting to be tolerable...barely.
I used Ranger Jet Black Archival ink and stamped on a bunch of random stamp images.
Last but not least, I whipped out the watercolors and filled in the rest of the card with colors.
Here's how they all turned out before I wrapped yarn around them:
I wrapped some yarn around these and secured it with some decorative paper clips that I've had in my stash forever. Now I have a nice place for some of my favorite yarn and I finally feel like I've gotten revenge on math!
