Here I am, up early trying to snatch some time at the computer before the little ones wake up. Am I getting it??? Would you believe it! They typically get up around 9am but this morning.......8.15am arrrrghh. Fortunately though, they have decided to play with Lego for a while before breakfast which gives me a bit longer to post these pics :)
I made this gift set for a friend of Lydia who had a birthday last month. The gorgeous papers were given to me by my lovely friend Lynda. The image is from DigiStamp Boutique Lucy Collection and is coloured with Copics. I also coloured a clear button to match as well. The sentiment is 'teenage angst' downloaded from urbanfonts.com.
A sour cream container made from matching cardstock, filled with sweets, sealed with double sided tape and crimped at each end.
I resized the image, this time cutting it out and adding it to the carton with foam pads.
This keyring was made with felt and fabric. I cut the felt pieces with a nestabilities heart die and used a smaller die for the fabric piece. I glued the ribbon between the felt pieces with hot glue and hand stitched the hearts together with small running stitches.
The gift bag is made with 2 sheets of white A4 size cardstock and a wide strip of matching paper added to the front and back. The tag is cut out with this Sizzix die. The glitter ribbon (for the handles) is from Marks & Spencer (christmas range)
For another of Lydia's friends, I made these felt pins for a decorated cork board. Both girls' birthdays were on a Monday and Tuesday of the same week, so we had a frantic weekend getting it all ready. Hopefully it was worth it!
I got the idea for these pins from Sarah at Paper and String. I asked permission first and as they are not being made for re-sale it was fine :) I really want to make more for our own cork board but I have too many half finished projects to do first...I'm running out of space to store them all!
The pins on the cork board.
I also stuck plain buttons on pins but it's hard to see in the photo.
That's it for today!
Thank you for visiting my blog and hello to my new followers :) I'm afraid my blog updates are a bit erratic but I will try my best and not let too much time pass between posts....!
