Cards in a Bottle

These are the projects that was featured in 
Creative Hobbies Issue 8.

The Mason Jar is filled with cards to give as a gift.
The jar is decorated with washi tape, ric rac, lace tape, a paper rose
 and a stamped image on paper. 

The paper Strawberry is filled with special treats.
It closes with the ribbon on top.
(This is my favorite)

 The Paper cones have small thank you notes
and are filled with Lindt Chocolate of course!

These Washi tape and paper feathers are used as decorations for
small paper bags filled with sweets.

Creative Hobbies Project. Sneakers with Sharpies.

This is a project that I did for the 
Creative Hobbies magazine, Issue 10. 

The Pilot Frixion Pen is a miracle. 
(those are the red lines on the tekkie)
As you can see, you draw what you want, colour 
the drawings with your sharpies. Outline the 
images with your black marker and then make
 the red lines disappear with the heat of a hairdryer. 

I used surgical spirit to blend the colours.

Unlike the decoupaged tekkies, these are waterproof
and ideally suited for kids.

Decorated Tekkies

It is March.... the last time I posted was in December.
Before we breathe again in will be June...
Are we keeping up?

Anyway, we had a tekkie class earlier this month and it was 
huge fun. The ladies are entering their Tekkies into a competetion!
None of them had ever decorated a tekkie before.

The pink tekkies were made by a Grade 5 girl. 

All of them turned out beautifully.
I am glad that I am not the judge.
Well done Ladies!
