Shabbie chic flower

 After seeing some of the great flowers people make i found this 
amazing lady on you tube this is a link to her videos 
She is a wounderful lady i meet her at the weekend.
. She made this flower and it was so easy to 
follow i have done a step by step for you but if you go to Fi's videos
she shows you.

 I am bad at circles so i drew around a plastic beaker
on ti card then on the cotton and cut them all out,

 then i folded in half then half again then again making 3 folds

 Then cut an arch from left to right
to make a petal don't worry if its not perfect as you can snip 
 in between.

 Then useing a lighter or gas flame lighter use lightly 
to curl as you can see its ok if the singe 

 When you have done them all glue together and add a flower 
in center and a feather or 2
 Then a piece of card for bottom. 
I then made a stick pin witch is also on fi's videos.

This is the fished one i am so happy with it.
And enjoyed playing.

Craftymess Challenge no 19 Anything goes

 Its time again for a challenge over at craftmess 
We had so many for the last challenge thank you all 
for entering.
This time it is anything goes

so i made a DL note book from a kitty food box
i took the bottom of the box trimmed it to size 
Then picked some card and  made 2 pieces a little bigger  covered one side of the cardboard with it
 i used a patterned
cutting blade to give it a nice look,
 Then i cut a bit of paper to size for the other side
When they were all stuck down i cut some plain paper for inside 
then put then in my bind it and made the holes and added the ring,

 Then i stared to decorate i did not use thick card for the front as i did for back
its only as heavy as the card i picked.

 I made some bows with 3 bits of ribbon
Added some gems and a small butterfly and a sentiment
Hope you all try this you can use a hole punch if you don't have a bind it 
and put ribbon in the holes instead of wire  or rings
Thank you for stopping by
Cant wait to see what you all do.
Love and hugs
