bits and bobs

Yesterday was a rather quiet playday, half the usual suspects were either, poorly, knackered, on hols or working :o(

The theme was xmas in July and I found a stunning project for them on a gorgeous paper wreath using spellbinder dies.

Much mutterings from Ade about the mess I created in cutting out 24 doilys & 15 doily borders, a lot of glue and a bit of ribbon & flowers later I made the sample wreath for them all to see.

Talk about a waste of time, while I think it was favourably received everyone ended up colouring in images all day lol.

Ah well, I had fun making it ;O)

While the dies were out and I had Beccas page open I also cased a box she made and came up with this tissue box. Nowt more than a few sheets of card, bit of ink, cherry cobbler seam binding and a wooden snowflake. I have made another box using the dies as decoration but until the recipient receives it I cant show.
