I've decided to finally take the plunge and start a new project just for me. I have not planned it out, but in my head I have an idea, so I'm just going for it and just see what happens. I'm going to be quilling, but this will have to fit in between me making stock for the forth coming events. To be continued.....
One of the things I love to do is use something old and making into something new and being loved again and that's what I've done with some old maps.
Here I've made some Kusudama paper flowers out of an old map book and they look great and brighten up any corner of a room. They are simple to make and can be of any size from small to very large. You can also put them together to create a flower ball, which I've made quite a few over the years and are often used for bridesmaid bouquets.
You can use up your old buttons for the centres. I love making these.
I've been playing around with quilling again and made a little heart for today. I've now run out of papers so just waiting for my order to arrive before I can have go at this very addictive craft again.
It's was my grandson birthday a couple of weeks ago and here is the cake I made him.
It wasn't hard to make. I covered the board in grey icing and painted the Death Star lights in white food colouring. I enjoyed that part the most. It's all eaten now. Got to think of something special for my granddaughter next.
So here are few more things that I've made this week. Lots of paper flowers ready for a 5 day event in August. This coming week I will need to catch up with book folding, and also start the Christmas stock.
