Sunday was a day of mixed feelings. Sunday was the 2 year anniversary since my Mum passed away after being struck down with pancreatic cancer. I was up at 4.30am to head off to Cobbitty Markets. It was a day of mixed blessings, rain, shine and lots of shoppers. I also stayed up until 3am making little gifts and ensuring I had everything I needed for Sunday my business launch. So guess who slept in and didn’t get to the demo as early as I had wanted 🙂
My lovely friend Leonie was waiting for me after her long trip from Campbelltown to Kellyville – she’s a gem and also my upline.
Leonie prepared 2 lovely make and takes as well as walking us through the catalogue and talking to us about the new Summer Mini Catalogue which goes live on 1st December here in Australia.
These are some of the bag in a box that we made – don’t know who owns the coffee cup 🙂 These are easy and great to make as they make versatile gifts for any occasion. You can fill them with a myriad of things – chocolates, ribbon, chipboard etc
This is Karen and Lesley. Karen’s waiting while Lesley was in deep concentration. Just in front of Karen you may be able to see the card we made.
Here are the 2 Margarets. Some of the tape adhesive proved more challenging than making the project.
The above photo shows you the little boxes I made and filled with chocolate as a thank you for attending. The ladies also received the template for the box so they could make more if they need too.
Hint When making such items use the red sticky strip tape as it’s strong and helps keep these lovely little projects together.
· 1″x12″ strip of patterned paper
· 1 x 1-1/4″ Circle
· Strong Adhesive
· Eyelet Border Punch
· Paper Crimper
· Brad or Button for centre.
· Punch eyelet border along strip of 12 x 1″ patterned paper
· Crimp the strip of patterned paper – run it through the crimper about 4 times to make the strip quite pliable to work with
· Cut circle from base cardstock and cover with strong adhesive – about 1 ¼” diameter.
· Attach one end to the outside of the circle.
· Folding as you go, work around and around the circle with the piece of crimped patterned paper.
· When finished your flower should cover the circle entirely
· Attach either a brad or a button to secure it together & then add it to your project
Yes, I know – you don’t want to think about it yet… It will be here sooner than you think. I did a Stamp-A-Stack class with the lovely Leonie Schroder. This is one of the cards we made. All the products are Stampin’ Up®. I love the bauble. We used the masking technique for that. We punched a hole in a post-it-note and centred it on the white card. We then stamped the sentiment and sponged around the edge of the circle. When you lift the post-it-note off, you are left with s mall bit of white in the centre which gives the bauble a 3D effect.
