Evening all, hope you are keeping out of mischief but if not, I hope you are staying safe.

As winter draws in it’s important to take up a more winter appropriate hobby, hence why I have turned my efforts to paper crafting.  See my previous post… Let’s get crafty… I have set up a table, with all my craft stuff on, in front of the biggest window in the house and I’m ready to be settled in for the winter.

Paper crafting is vast.  There is an incredible amount of choice in the products you can use and a myriad of techniques you can employ.  It’s a real minefield.  The potential for spending all your money on this hobby is high.  So crafter beware.  I personally have spent far too much money already on it but I continue to spend, it’s very addictive.

So I thought as a little Saturday treat I would post a photo of one of my creations and give you a feel for where I bought my craft items from and how much they cost.

So here goes…

Paper Crafting Example

The materials to make this card cost 63p:

– 6×6 card (white linen) with envelope : 12p (pack of 50 – £5.70)
– 20cm gold organza ribbon : 7p (from a 4m roll)
– Black and cream cardstock : 12p (approx.)
– 4 Black flower embellishments : 32p

To make the card I also used the following; Tonic punch (Twined Lily) to make the black flowers, an Ebossalicious 6×6 embossing folder (Floral Frenzy), fingerlift double-sided tape to tape down the card and a glue gun to fix the flowers.

If you want any more details just drop me a question in the comments.

That’s it from me.  Hope you all enjoy your crafting endeavours and have a real crafty winter.
