Almost Artisan 4


Here's yet another entry of mine into the Artisan Award contest from Stampin' Up! This pirate ship centrepiece was made with the Pirate Party pack. The flags, string, toothpicks, black ribbon and banner pieces come from the kit. I modified the banner pices into sails, by cutting the bottoms off the triangles, and adding some scalloped paper as trim. I used the Jumbo Eyelets on the sails to strengthen the holes and I liked the control it gave when placing the sails on the dowling. I also used the eyelets at the base of the sails for added strength when standing the sails up . The boat uses a small box as a base. Thinking back now, I probably should have put more detail into the boat. I also wonder how it survived shipping. I packed it up pretty securely, but you never know...
