Oh I do hate it when I can’t get right on the SDC challenge, especially as MIL brought my early Christmas gift of a load of new images. So a trade off – in-laws here so less time to craft on the one hand (although that is more to do with MIL and her helping make the doll-from-hell for DD then because they are any sort of burden) but new rubber on the other hand.

You would be forgiven for having no idea what this is, or for knowing where I am heading with it! What it is is mylar strapping. I think it is used for making “strapless” items so that they stay up. But that isn’t what I used it for, of course – my strapless days are long past! Another clue?

The problem with a Jacob’s Ladder is the strapping covers the images. With clear strapping, problem solved. I did TRY to photograph the step-by-step but honestly it was just too hard to see what was going on due to the “invisible” strapping. There are How-To posts out there for making a Jacob’s Ladder, so I am not sure if it is worth me making another one using colour coded ribbon. It may happen, and if it does, I’ll post it then.
