Envelope Photo Wallet

Hi Everyone!

Yesterday’s workshop at Stampers Grove in Edinburgh was fun and a good time was had by all making their Photo Wallets.

I made one along with all the lovely ladies who came to the workshop.. it was a lovely surprise to see Helen again, my crafty friend from Kelso. Β  Β I met Helen when I used to demo crafty stuff at the garden centre down there and she now comes all the way up to Edinburgh to Stampers Grove workshops πŸ™‚

Our photo wallets were constructed from envelopes and we used a variety of mediums, including Brusho Crystal ColoursΒ  to achieve our finished projects

Pom Pom Paper Clips

Hi Everyone..

I was out for lunch today at Loch Leven’s Larder and whilst we were waiting for a table, we had a browse around the shop, where they have loads of gifty things and I happened to spy pom pom paper clips, they were silver clips with white pom poms, and they were not cheap! … Β now I thought to myself, I can make them!, I have all the stuff Β in my wee shed!… I will make some when I get home, and I did πŸ™‚ and here they are πŸ˜‰

supplies list:-

  • Pom Poms – Hobbycraft sell huge bags of them
  • Paper Clips – I bought a plastic tub from Asda for Β£2 (it had paper clips and Push pins and other clips in it)
  • UHU Glue Β£1 from the Pound shop (really any glue will do use what you have to hand)

Now these a fairly inexpesive to make and look really nice and if you have kids they will go down a treat, plus I am sure they will love to have a go at making these too!

I hope that you will have a go at making some too… I’m sure your children/grandchildren will love these for when they start back at school… hey they are even great for taking into the office πŸ™‚
