Crafty Ribbons Christmas Lavender bags

























Hey everyone, hope you are well! I am here with some simple gifts to give at Christmas time. I used Crafty Ribbons Nisse Ribbon, fat quarters, felt, lavender and rice. You cut the fabric and ribbon to sew on the sewing machine inside out. You leave a little hole open and then I used a tidy tray to mix lavender and rice together and funnelled it into the little sachets. Lastly you hand sew them shut :)

Crafty Ribbons Summer Memories Hair Bow






















Hey everyone, I hope you are well. I am here with a hair ribbon I made with some of my favourite ribbons ever, Tulip fields and Lots a Dots ribbon! As we head towards the season of giving its always a good idea to get ahead with some projects like these so you don't have to experience the stress of crafting at the last minute. That being said who am I kidding...I always end up stressing for that reason! :)

Butterfly Box with felt lining


Hey everyone, I hope you are well! I am here with a gift I made for my friend's special birthday. I found some gorgeous napkins in a supermarket that I couldn't bear to use just wiping up so I decided to use them to cover some plain wooden boxes :)






I put mod podge on the wood then carefully folded the napkin down onto the wood and tapped any air bubbles out gently. I then left it to dry. On the top was a heart shape void. I didn't want to see inside the box from the outside so I found some pretty paper that matched the butterflies and placed it in the top of the lid, then covered this with thick cardstock on the inside for strength. I varnished the outside of the box and the heart cut out with more mod podge and left to dry. I then added a butterfly cut from felt over the heart.

 Lastly I cut panels of felt in a similar colour to the butterflies on the outside and covered the inside.

Crafty Ribbons Nautical Brooches























Good morning everyone, hope you are well! I am here with some Nautical Brooches I made for Crafty Ribbons using Nautical Ribbon and Grosgrain Ribbon. To avoid the bulk of tying bows I folded and glued them and then used a brooch blank on the back :)

Crafty Ribbons Alkaline Trio Only Love Canvas























Hey everyone, hope you are well! I am here to share a canvas I made for a trio friend for our monthly postal swap :) I chose 'Only Love' as my inspiration and I started by creating the lyric quote and framing it with a wooden frame. I then added jute ribbon as a mat for underneath.
I used a stencil for a tree and four different colours of tim holtz distress ink then covered it in fabric mod podge. I then embossed some areas using vintage embossing powder. I used texture paste in the top corner and then stamped over it with a script stamp.

Next I added the lace from Crafty Ribbons and the 'love' wood decoration over the top. I positioned my lyric frame. Lastly I added a trio charm I made using shrink plastic and tiny butterflies I had cut from drink cans.

Crafty Ribbons Butterfly Scrapbook page























Hey everyone, hope you are well! I am here with a scrapbook page I have made to document some of my butterfly photography.
I used Papermania Capsule Collection papers and cardstock, kraft card, Crafty Ribbons Butterfly script ribbon, a wooden heart, embossing inks and papers.
I die cut the photo I chose and then did the same with kraft card and other patterned paper. I set the layout out with the ribbon and jute as the centre element and then drew stitches around each paper element.
I heat embossed 'love' onto the wooden heart embellishment and used it as my sentiment and then embellished with flowers.

Beauty and the Beast Sparkling Black Rose Lamp

























Hey everyone, I hope you are well. I am here to share a personalised version of the rose in the Beauty in the Beast. (To represent my username sparklingblackrose!) I found a gorgeous velvety rose on etsy, a small bell jar, some silver wire leds with a remote and I got out my mica pigment from my stash.

I drilled a hole into the bottom of the base to make sure the flower stood up unsupported. I then cut away any leaves on the stem which were too wide for the jar. I got out my black mica pigments and painted them onto the edges of the flower petals and let them dry.
I then arranged the lights on the base and around the flower, lastly attaching the end of the lights to the top of the jar with a tiny bit of white tack.

Vintage Style Mini Drawers


































































Hey everyone, hope you are well! I am here with a set of mini drawers I have been meaning to alter for a long while. They came as plain wood with tiny handles I didn't like glued on. I pulled off the handles straight away!

I embossed some good quality cardstock with a vintage style embossing folder. I then carefully cut around the embossed pattern and glued onto the wood to give some texture.
I then painted the drawers in three different colours of chalk paint. After this was dry I mixed various vintage colours of mica pigment powder into the matte varnish and applied using sponges. I painted a generous amount on to the whole side then took a dry sponge to take some of the excess off around the embossed areas so that the whole surface distressed but with the concentration on the embossed pattern. I did this for two coats and left to dry.

I then drilled tiny holes into the drawers and used some gorgeous vintage style label drawer pulls I got from docrafts ages ago, this way it is very secure :)
