Glue Stick Container

Hi everyone, hope you are all enjoying the lovely-ish weather of late, we had yet another downpour this morning followed by some lovely sunshine, I don’t think the weather quite knows what to get up to next, its changeable to say the least!

I have another design team project to share with you today on behalf of Wild Orchid Crafts.    I recycled a bright pink vanish stain remover plastic container, and re-purposed it as a new glue stick container to keep all my glue sticks in one place…

 

I tweeked the project slightly and you can see the additional flowers added to it over on the Youtube video that shows the project off here

“Mini” Bags

Hi everyone…. it’s been a while, but I am still here,  still alive and kicking after a week of being poorly 🙂

A couple of weeks ago I moved a tall bookcase into the shed to give me more storage space, as I was rapidly running out of it!… so whilst I was moving stuff around, I came across a drawer full of the $1 chipboard mini albums from Micheals in all different shapes and sizes.

After 2 weeks of pondering what I could make with them I came up with the idea of turning them into gift bags…

This is my 2nd DT project for the month of June for Wild Orchid Crafts ……

Oh how I love the colour of these strawberry wild roses… they are on special offer at the moment

The paper collection I used is Nantucket by Pink Paislee..
