Anything goes is Sheila's choice of theme this week
My project was made using a golf bag template which I resized to suit. Once I had cut out all my pieces with the robo the only thing left for me to do was to decorate the golf bag' I added the numbers etc to the clubs as well as an insert to help the clubs stand up. To finish I added extra clubs, flags and border peel offs to embellish the bag. I made a box to fit the golf bag into and used acetate on two sides so it can be left in the box. I must say I am really pleased with the results.
My card today is an image from Saturated Canary called Becky. She was a lovely image to colour and I used copics as my chosen medium.
I began with a C5 basic card followed by some matting and layering using a lovely piece of teal card. I then embossed a piece of white card using an m-bossibilites folder which had been die cut using my basics set of 5x7 spellbinders dies. I then die cut a piece of mustard striped paper from my crafty stash and a piece of mustard plain card which I think is from Anna Marie Designs. All topped off with a piece of black ribbon.
Thank you for stopping by at Craftateers.
With a hint of warmer weather this week my thoughts turned to the seaside. It's been 16 years since I last saw the sea and but I have plenty of fond memories of being at the beach as a child.
These beautiful stamps from Crafty Individuals have been lain, unused, in one of my stamp boxes for years so I thought it about time to get them out and use them.
I think the little caption says so much...
For these tissue box covers l measured all around the box, and added 1" for the seam also measure how deep you want it, then score for each corner. The "lid" was made in the usual way, but before making it up cut out an aperture to enable access to the tissues,then glue the "lid" to the main on the edges only. For the sides l cut squares slightly smaller than the side itself, cut an aperture in each one, and ran through an embossing folder of choice and placed decorative paper behind after inking the edges. To finish off l wrapped toning ribbon around the "lid" edge and added a bow. With these boxes there isn't a base so as to enable the whole thing to slide off and replace with a new box of tissues. Of course you decorate to your own choice. These boxes were very popular at my craft stall.
