Jacob's Ladder - featuring Elmer's products





I thought I'd like to tackle a Jacob's ladder. I am happy to report they are no where near as complicated as they look! Well, at least crafting them is easy, getting them to fold up is another story! Cheesy

I found the running dots were fabulous to tack down the ribbons and the paper that covers the ribbon ends.


I used a handmade paper that had almost a fabric feel to it.




Fin! I think the next one I do will be a series of linked ATCs.

I could play with this for hours Smiley! I love Jacob's ladders but always assumed they were hard to put together.

I love your idea of doing one with ATCs.

From the first picture I had trouble wrapping my brain around what you had done. Thank you for explaining it. It would be a great way to make an ATC ladder/booklet. Smiley

I loved Jacobs ladders as a kid!  this one is super classy.  Would be really fun to have on my desk, to flip flop while thinking Cheesy
