No I haven’t really got any excuses for not finishing off my convention posts. I haven’t even taken the photos of all the lovely swaps I received. Perhaps I should just redirect you to Karen’s site – she is more on the ball than me, hee hee!!
Now this is a workshop I held 9 days ago – see I’m not to be relied on for my prompt postings!
This is the box I did as a demonstration. I wrapped some bath bombs in cellophane, tied with a bow and put inside. I gave this box to the hostess. I used the lovely Baja Breeze cardstock which I am really glad is going to be one of our new colours.
I made the flower by punching out the DSP twice with the round scallop punch, then cutting in between each scallop to make a petal. I then used my paper? to break down the fibres so that each leaf curled slightly. I then used the five petal flower punch to punch out the centre flower using the contrasting DSP colour. I finished it off with one of the lovely flower brads.
Below are the 2 different orientations of the make and take. They had a choice as to which orientation they wished to make. The credit for this design has to go to Anabel Welch as it is one she did quite a long time ago but I thought it was such a nice simple little card for a workshop and also introduced them to the double stamping and the two square punches.
