ooooo Loads of stuffff!

Hello hello hello, just been so busy of late! "With what"? I hear you scream. With this for a start.

Eight layers of plastic bag in between baking paper and ironed

Then cut out the words, "MAKE DO AND MEND"
Next for the bunting
Not bad!
Now I also want to show that you can make wonderful journals out of left overs from other paper craft projects
Boxes of all descriptions...,
And sizes can be turned into journals with the addition of.....,
Paper, decorative 12 x 12, or wall paper, wrapping paper..., old magazines.

Next onto some felting, and embellishment! Here is some gorgeous felt from Oliver Twists.

run it though a big shot with a flower die.
Then I used the embellisher to bind the pieces together.
Added some beads to the middle and a pin to the back.

                       Now lets do some more make do and mend. Old envelopes opened up

Draw around then onto old cereal packet to create temples to be used time and again

then draw around them onto wrapping paper wall paper or decorative paper..., magazines!

Here I added some stitch detail.

I used double sided tape to seal up the envelope after adding a decorative liner from the scraps of paper.

See you later
