Mmmmmm Chocolate

Fashionable Stamping start there new challenge for the next fortnight and the theme this time round is BINGO.

My DT project is a recycled toilet roll which I made into a bag, then added a Turkish Delight … my most fave Chocolate Bar mmmmm.
The first two pictures are the front of the bag and the next two are the back. The three lines of the grid I followed are … show some metal, lace and words which is the first vertical line on the grid. This could also have followed the middle horizontal line which is the lace, distressing and buttons because I made paper distressed ruffles on the bottom … love making these.

We made a version of this at my Cottage Crafts class yesterday and the girls loved it.
I will be showing another one I made tomorrow but this one has a Cream Egg in it … all my ladies had a treat because I gave them a cream egg to add to their 😉 projects when finished. Minute on the lips, lifetime on the hips … at my age who cares!!!

Andrew has been flattening some bottle caps for me because they look gorgeous with a little picture in the middle then add Glossy Accents which makes it look like glass.

    You have some gorgeous images here, which look stunning with these papers! I had never thought of flattening bottle caps before…it almost sounds therapeutic. And just add chocolate!
