May Flowers and Summer Sweeties

Hi everyone… i’m back from my holidays, I had a fab time, it was lovely to spend time with my family overseas 🙂

I hit the shops today, I needed to get Chunky a new collar, I wanted a couple of new tops for work and whilst I was there popped into hobbycraft 😉

I picked up a packet of pillow boxes from the wedding section of hobbycraft, as its something I’ve never used or worked with before,  I had to wait until this evening to make something with them as my shed was like an oven in this lovely heatwave we are having 🙂

The first one I made used the Echo Park Hello Spring paper collection, I had a spare piece of the butterfly paper left over from the photo frame project on my previous post, and it made sense to use it up before breaking into another fresh sheet 😉

I added lace and machine stitched the edges then embelished it with one of the accent stickers, which I matted and layered before adhering it to the front of the pillow box

Supplies List :-

  • Pillow Boxes from Hobbycraft
  • Echo Park Hello Spring Collection pack
  • White Lace & Sewing Machine
  • Wild Orchid Crafts Flowers
  • Dimensional Adhesive
  • Scortape
  • Stardust stickles

then I made another one using Wild Honey Distress Ink

I am planning to make another couple of these tomorrow morning and recording the process on Ustream, then I will feature all 4 for on Youtube for my next WOC DT Project …

Supplies Used :-

  • Tim Holtz Wild Honey Distress Ink
  • Heat Gun
  • Yellow Iridescent Butterflies from Wild Orchid Crafts
  • Mulberry Flowers and Pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts
  • Studio G Stamps from Hobbycraft
  • Sepia Archival Ink from Ranger

Thanks for Popping in… Sarah 🙂
