If you love the regular size Happy Jig, then you are going to LOVE this new tool! It is perfect to create home decor projects with handlettering words and symbols. The new BIG Happy Jig works uses a wider wire and you can also use neon wire! How cool is that?
To create my decorations I started with a 10.5 inch wide piece of cardstock. I measured 2.5 inch on each side and created the banner. After that, I used my Crop a Dile to punch holes on the bottom and top of my wall banner.
I used my Big Happy Jig to create an ampersand with gold wire. This design is from the regular Happy Jig tool guide, you don’t need to change anything, the designs work perfectly on both tools.
One thing I love about the Big Happy Jig is that you can remove the peg case and the mat it is flat so it doesn’t use much space on your craft room.
Once you are done with your design bend the edges so you can insert the design on the banner.
I also used one design from the Happy Jig Instagram account (werhappyjig) and made two connecting hearts.
Use cotton wool and your Tassel Loom to create 5 inch tassels and one 2 inch tassel. I decorated the tassel with Stitch Happy Gold Thread so they coordinated with the wires.
Use the 5 small tassels to decorate the bottom of your banner and some thickers to write the “you” and “me” words.
I love how the ampersand floats over the banner!
For my other decor I used the 2 inch tassel and some wood beads to decorate the two hearts. I made this tassel with all 3 colors of yarn, I think it looks very cute!
What do you think? The Big Happy Jig gives you so many possibilities! What would you make with it?
Have a great day!
