Baby shower decoration and box!



These are a small portion of what i was commissioned to make by a former work colleage, i also made 20 cake boxes and a banner which i forgot to take a picture of [whoops] and i've started to made a baby shower scrapbook yes lots of pink! aahh. I made the giant rossettes and then stamped words in the centre, embossed in silver and finished with flowers, the box i covered in paper and used 3d stickers, flowers and a handmade felt flower yes in pink.

CANDLES!

So the nights are drawing in and with electric prices the way they are [ not cheap lol] I have brought some candles to use. So I decided to decorate them by stamping this little chappy from S.W.A.L.K. ''winter cheer collection'' by crafters companion onto white tissue paper , I then coloured him in using Spectrum Noir pens and them cut him out leaving alittle gap, then by using greaseproof paper to keep him in place on the candle I heated him using my heat tool until the image could be seen though the greaseproof paper.  SIMPLES!!!
