Looking for feathers to add to your card? Well, you could run to the craft store and purchase a bag. What do you do with the other five hundred? I did find out that you store them very high in a closed container. Left some on the table, came back to my craft room and feathers were everywhere. My white ragdoll cat looked a little guilty and tried to say, "It wasn't me, I found it like this." Little did he know they were stuck in in hair. He looked like Big Bird!
You could go out and chase birds; maybe you could find one.
Or....you could make your own from Washi Tape.
These are fun to make. You need a roll of washi tape that is about a half inch wide, some white florist wire or I used the thick bakers twine.
Lay your wire or bakers twine down on the stamping surface. Cover the ends of the twine with a small piece of washi tape to keep it straight. Pinch the tape in around the wire or twine.
Then, add a row of washi tape on both sides of the twine covering the piece you put down for the spine of the feather on each edge.
Turn to the opposite side and cover with wash tape the same as the front.
Now, with both sides covered, cut the edges in the shape of a feather.
Last, fringe both sides of the feather shape fairly close together.
Now you have feathers, with no hunting or cat problems, to add to your card. Kitty will not attempt to catch them.
