At the beginning of January, our daughter left the UK to go and live and work in Australia - our 3 sons and their families are already there...
Before that we helped Sophie clear her house. This meant many trips to various charity shops as well as putting things on ebay, after she had packed the stuff she was keeping.
It sort of put us in the mind of clearing some of our clutter...so, amongst other things I have been putting quite a lot of crafty stuff on ebay - trying to destash my craft room!!
I hadn't realised I had so many half finished projects in so many different crafty areas!
Anyway one of my lots is for some Craftwork Cards packs of plant pot and planter cards. Each pack contains 10 of each press out shapes in white - ready for colouring or embellishing and glueing. I am selling these 2 for 1 as I thought they would be ideal for Playgroups or Brownie packs or such.
The planter makes quite a nice little gift box: I just added some patterned paper.
Using the plant pot card design and little children in mind, I came up with this simple idea: Again I decorated with patterned paper.
However, as I was sorting out my craft room I came across some chipboard embellishments
and came up with the next idea:
The plant pot bottom is embellished with some snippets of ribbon (the butterfly ones from a prize from Mrs A - thank you again ValeryAnne!) on a scrap of textured card.
I added an extra piece of card above the pot to attach the floral embellishments to...
I will link this to the Butterfly Challenge. Although I haven't used an aperture and only touches of the colours it is definitely 'Anything Goes'!
By the way if you'd like the link to my ebay lot it is here
