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

I have had a right old lazy day today… I got up bright and early, made a trip to the post office and mailed out all my packages..

Then took a drive to a local Hobbycraft and picked up a few bits n bobs,.. one of which, was this papier mache bare chipboard hanging photo frame… it looks really easy to make so will try and replicate creating one tomorrow 🙂

I took the frame and gave it a couple of coats of Rose Pink Acrylic Paint..

Supplies List :-

  • Docrafts Artiste Rose Pink Acrylic Paint
  • Tim Holtz Coredinations Kraft Distress Cardstock
  • Prima Botanical Flower

There are only a few supplies required to create this lovely wee frame, and you could knock one out just in time for mothers day tomorrow 😉

I distressed the edges of the cardstock to give it a real shabby feel

It’s simple but really pretty .A view of the back…
