Box

Jumbo Tea Light Candle boxes

Tuesday, December 13, 2016

I've been asked to run a stall at a Christmas market on Sunday so I have been busy getting a number of things ready for it.  I am sure these little boxes are going to be a great hit!  Each one has two jumbo vanilla scented tea light candles in them.


These are super easy and quick to make.  (Edit: I now have a tutorial on how to make these boxes: http://www.handmadebyfiona.com/2017/01/tutorial-jumbo-tea-lights.html)

 The main tool you'll need is the envelope punch board.  Here's everything else you need to make some for yourself (I used a couple of retired ribbons that I had in my collection. You can pick whichever ribbon you'd like for these - they are so versatile!):


Thanks to Pootles for the inspiration.

Happy crafting,
Fiona

Holy Family Christmas Bauble

Friday, December 02, 2016

I've taken the plunge and used my silver embossing powder.  It has sat gathering dust in my cupboard for ages before I found the inspiration to use it on this card for the little image of the Holy Family. 
Have you used it?  What do you use it for most?  Sentiments or images like I have here?


Heat embossing isn't as hard as you might think.  Have you tried it?  I'm going to be doing some tutorials over the summer to help people with some techniques.  Drop me a line and let me know if there's anything else you'd like me to make a tutorial on.

Celebration

Let's Celebrate Stripes

Tuesday, November 29, 2016

There are many occasions to celebrate in life and sometimes you need a card that just embraces that.  This one's for a friend of mine who took a radical change of direction in life and has just completed university studies, for the second time!  That's certainly cause for celebration.


This card isn't difficult but it is fiddly.  Cut all your strips of cardstock into 1/4" pieces and make the first piece you stick down the white piece which runs down the middle-ish area that starts off the change in direction.  Stick all these onto a piece of standard Whisper White, the trim off the excess and stick that down on another piece of Whisper White with a slight border.  Easy!

CASED from my lovely grannie upline, Kylie Bertucci.  Thanks Kylie!
