Fringing scissors

Hello there,

How is your week going? Its been challenging here for sure, it was meant to be the perfect week fitting in activities for Luca while still working a bit and achieving some goals.

Plans made ahead rarely work out and we had to make some adjustments, its been quite the week but we are getting through it. I visited the doctor’s more this week than the whole of last year put together :(.

Back to a little project I have to share with you. I designed this box of tags for our Training event in January and its uses the new fringing scissors in the New catalogue.

How cute is that pom pom? Made out of filter paper and coloured using some coastal cabana reinker and alcohol mix in a spritzer bottle.

The box was made with the aid of the Envelop Punch Board a must have tool for any crafter, the crafting world has been made a lot wider with the launch of this tool (fab product)

You might be wondering where the filigree panel comes from. One of the products included in the kit was the fabby Simply Fabulous Simply Sent Kit.

And here’s the box opened with the tags peeking out.

We used the gorgeous Happy Watercolour stamp set to make some simple tags to stuff into the bag.

The ribbon, gems and the tiny hearts all came from the simply sent kit. Really good value kit, we made a lot of different projects from it. I will be sharing a cool mini album  next.

Thank you for stopping by today, enjoy the rest of your week.
