I made some popcorn trim for a few cards. You can see the Grace and Daniel one HERE
Here is a close up of the popcorn on that card:
(( I will edit tomorrows post with a link to that card as well ))
Here is simply how it was created.
I used twinery twine, tulip puffy paint and a heat gun.
Lay the twine on a heat proof surface such as a ceramic tile as I did.
Then place dots of paint across the twine as long as you want your popcorn string to be.
Heat your 'popcorn' carefully until it puffs up. I like to leave mine on a little longer to sort
of 'brown' it to make it look more realistic, but be careful not to BURN it.
See the hint of brown in that piece?
They look pretty.. and puffy, but not really like popcorn.
To make that magic happen, carefully flip over your string.
See - it is still wet underneath! Use your heat gun again to heat the under side.
This is how you will get the popcorn pieces to look like the real deal!

I hope you liked my simple little tutorial.
Have fun creating!
