Another holiday which I have, up to this year, failed to turn crafty!
So this year, I got organised. People should fear this. I could do terrible thing should I ever get REALLY organised.
I decided to make two things I've never made before. A nice box card and some Jamma bottoms.
Went a wee drive into town with my mum and picked a green and purple paisley pattern for Ben. He does appreciate a nice paisley.
I went into to my crafty cave (AKA. the front room) and whipped them up in about 2 and half hours. A bloody miracle.
Poor Ben. Always the guinea pig.
Though I have to say he did look pretty impressed. So much so he requested matching ones for the boys!
What a proud mother I am! I got the instructions (which were amazingly easy to follow) from Prudent Baby http://prudentbaby.com/2010/06/baby-kid/how-to-sew-pants-2/ what would I do without all these talented crafters.
And then comes the card.
I had seen this card http://extremecards.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/mothers-day-magic-explosion-box.html and couldn't get it out of my head. So I had a little go at it.
I just used some cardstock I had in the house. Decided to make the outside a nice monotone and the inside...
Ben was pretty chuffed with that too.
Heres to the next holiday crafting!!
