This Christmas I was very lucky to receive a beautiful paper crafts book as a Secret Santa pressie. Couldn't really be more perfect for me!
Its filled with lovely ideas and projects. I particularly like the brooches...
..butterfly gift tags...
...and mini star garland...
....definitely gonna try my hand at all these.
Love a bit of inspirational bookage....so over the weekend I decided to get cutting, sticking, and generally rather messy, with some cute and colourful papers and an old atlas.
Im a big fan of re-using and recycling and the atlas has made some quite sweet quilled flowers. A few little pearls in the middle finish them off.
Then a few very girly, and very pink butterflies. Im toying with the idea of making some more of these and attaching mini pegs to the back and making a sort of detachable butterfly bunting.
Whether I get around to that or not, they are still quite sweet.
Speaking of bunting, I decided to try and make a mini paper version, made up of lots of different papers.
A little fiddly in places, but definitely worth persisting with. I love how it looks hanging above my work desk. I think this is one that would look great at Christmas in reds and creams.
So all in all a fairly productive few days.
Now im turning my attention to Mr Fox and Mr Badger (a mini project I started before Christmas and had hoped to finish before Christmas!!!).
One day I will learn to finish what i've already started before taking on something new...(then again maybe not?!).....
