A Crafty Weekend
Is it wrong to fall in love with a paper punch? I know you gals with your Cricuts have a love thing going on!
I just bought this Martha Stewart edge punch. Isn't it beautiful? I know, I know, you probably have one already. But I am very new to this tag-making experience.
I thought I would try to make a tag before I make one of Elizabeth's, for her Tag Along. She will be making a different tag every month, and she provides the graphics for them. You can copy hers, or make it your own. So I made this little one, to get some practice. The crepe paper was definitely the boss of me, instead of the other way around! But I am learning. I wish you could see the glittery parts, because I love the Stickles glitter glue that I used. Either way, I want to use that edge punch to make many more!
I also made a bunch of felt and flannel hearts, all a little different from one another.
I acquired alot of apothecary jars last year. Last year. That sounds funny to say!
So I needed to fill those jars with lots of hearts, and felt ones seemed the cheapest way. Seven down, many more to go. I hope you found time this weekend to craft!
