I had so much fun on the Friday before the event making gifts for some special people who would be at Telford. I was short on time though so had to rustle them up rather quickly and I have to say that these were super quick to make. I wrapped a belly band around a couple of tins I had lying around and using the scallop border trim punch to decorate the edge. I had not used that punch for quite some time and felt guilty for not using it for a while as it has to sit and watch me craft everyday so hopefully it no longer feels left out ;0) As you may know i cannot stop making these coffee filter paper flowers and made a larger version using the floral framelits (2nd smallest size). I added some colour with our inks and a stippling brush on each layer of filter paper which gave a very delicate tone. I then ruffled the layers to create these beautiful flowers and added them to the belly band.
I added a sentiment with the That's the ticket stamp set, stamped in whisper white and punched around using the coordinating ticket punch. And then stamped my chosen sentiment using the Friendly Phrases stamp set (I love the fonts used in this set). I then cut a leaf and crimped is using my crimping tool (check out my video to show you how to make the leaves here).
I had to fill them with something delicious so of course I did not bake (it definitely would not be delicious) but Salisbury's did me proud!
I was also SO proud of two of my lovely team as they presented at the training event in front of 300+ people!! So I made them both a little gift to let them know that I think they are both amazing…
And they really were amazing! SO inspirational and one of the presenters Sarah Poulton, had travelled from the Isle of Wight with her partner and her little daughter and it was her daughters birthday on the Saturday and she was so selfless to share it with us!
The sun is shining here and my washing is on the line so all is good, hope you are having a lovely day too.
See you soon
