Bottle Bag

I had bought a bottle bag that looked like a suit and decided it was too nice for a bottle. I sliced it open to put it on a card...namely one I was making for my sons 18th. I had cut it in half so that I could stick it to the card and use it as a pouch. I then put the back of the bag on the back of the card, lined up with the bit on the front. I made a special envelope style thing so that money or a gift voucher could be put into it and then slipped into the pouch. Turned out quite good and I was rather impressed with myself. Here are the pics.(apologise for the blurr......I had broke my wrist and had pins and stuff sticking out of it at the time....Im right handed and that was the wrist I broke so it was a bit tricky to make and had problems holding the camera still too)

Loo Roll Book

I recently found a tutorial for a book made from the inside part of the toilet roll. It looked so good that I had to try it. My finished product wasnt as good as the one made by the person who did the tutorial but it turned out well. I made it for a friends daughter who just had a baby girl at 7.05am today (04/05/12) and she weighed in at 8lbs. Im pretty chuffed for both 'mummy' and 'granny' lol

The book closed.

Open with the tags laid out.
The book opened.

Elegant Easel

I bought some things that were out of my comfort zone. Eventually came up with some design and here they are.

One of these will be in the mail in the next day or two to a very special person that I admire. ;o)
