but when trimming a piece of ikea fleece to protect the dog’s new favourite snooze seat, the wavy edge made a simple rectangle just that bit smarter – and it cut the fleece like butter and better than with scissors
but what to do with the left overs?
looks great with the panels painted with left over glass paint but not for food containers as it warps ones expectations of the contents. Blue sugar anyone? Painted glass best for Epsom salts or potpourri storage.
particularly good for up cycling (white) wine bottles to hold our home made vinegars, sorry I gave them away before I remembered to photograph them.
so to use up the rest of the packs I am off to the charity shop tomorrow to titivate a couple of vases.
Docrafts adhesive cork and patterned paper, scan n cut letters plus petrol blue matting card finished with tool style brads and an inevitable dash of wink of Stella .
Happy Father’s Day on the inside but now (years into card making) I realize that just for you on the outside means a personalized message on the insert can be added at the mast minute. Off to make some manly stash cards!
materials: 1 A4 sheet cardstock (I used craft card), scissors, strong tape or glue, hole punch Washi tape to close and decorate
score and fold card into toblerone shape – I scored at 6.5, 13 and 19cm then turned the card and scored at 4 cm from either side
i then cut up the 4cm score lines, trimmed and wedged the flaps created to make triangles as shown
I then hole punched 14 holes (enough to squeeze in different scraps of ribbons, if it will wrap round an A6 card, I keep it). I only have an office ring binder punch so was limited to punch near a score line but the holes can be wherever you want). Then form the toblerone shape and stick the overlapping triangles together. I used red liner tape.
Poke ends of ribbon through the holes from inside to out, a crochet hook works well, and when your holder is full secure it closed with washi tape so you can top it up some time in the future without destroying the box
just a few more to make before I get the ribbon stash under control!
if decorated this would make a nice little gift for a crafty friend…
