“Bunny Times” Snip and Fold Teeny Mini

I just couldn’t help myself….. I had to make another one ๐Ÿ˜‰ ย they are sooo addictive and I have really enjoyed making them.

This time I went for pink, then I found a cute rabbit, then it turned into a Spring~like “Bunny Times Mini”

I didnt give this one a chipboard cover, I just left it “as is” because the patterned paper is quite sturdy, I covered the edge with the gorgeous rosebud lace trim that Deb sent me.

We still have no heating… although the engineer is supposed to be here today between 12pm and 6pm, so until then, I have to craft in the lounge, as that’s where my workshop heaters will remain until the house gas central heating is resumed.

Remember that gardening paper stack, journalling spots and rub-ons I bought the other week half price.. well they were in amongst a pile of stuff I brought down from the workshop… so I decided to make a notepad with them today ๐Ÿ™‚ ย  I will be keeping the rest of them to make a gardening mini next year to record all the stuff I grow ๐Ÿ™‚

Supplies List :~

  • Stampin Up Blue Cardstock from the Earth Elements Pack
  • Born to Shop “Go Green” A5 Patterned Paper & Glitter Transfer Stickers
  • Small Supermarket Notepad
  • Dimensional Adhesive Squares
  • ATG 700 Gun
  • Corner Chomper

Satin Flower Brooch

I’ve been trying to think of easy things to make down in the house until I can get back up to my workshop….

Our gas central heating broke down completely on Christmas Day, so we had to bring my Oil Filled radiator and my Fan heater down from the workshop to keep us warm… it’s amazing just how quickly a house cools down when you have no heating and its minus 8 degrees outside brrrrr….. ย ๐Ÿ™‚

So i’m in the house, watching everyones fab youtube videos and looking for things to make, that I dont have to bring tons of stuff down from the workshop…

This Satin Flower Brooch was the ideal starter…. I had already die cut the flowers from satin material, they just needed the ends sealed off with a naked flame & assembled with a brad and a brooch pin (I burned the edges a bit lol) but it looks fine as it’s just for me

Hope you all had a fabulous christmas ๐Ÿ™‚

Supplies List :~

  • Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Die
  • Satin Material Greens (from the ยฃ1 shop)
  • Papermania Caspule Collection Sweetie Brads in Verde
  • 1 x Brooch Pin
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • a Naked Flame ๐Ÿ˜‰
