Crafting with Girlie #1

Now that Girlie #1 is at the "big" school, her holiday dates vary to her sister.  This Easter holidays she scored two days more than her sister at the start.  Monday morning I had to pop round to see another English lady, who I do a bit of translating for, and we had a cup of tea there.  She is a real arty crafty type and was showing #1 a lot of things she had done.

So on our return home I was met with Mum, I really want to make something...

So, this is what we came up with

Ingredients were:  cheapy frames from Ikea, loo roll, white glue, acrylic paint, spray varnish

And for the fabic flowers/rosettes: old greetings card, hot glue, spare fabric and a button

She is delighted with how they have turned out.  The green and gold one have been presented to Aunty E and Granny, and the purple (her favourite) and blue one remain here at home.

They really were quick and easy to do, we were lucky with the sunny weather that helped to cut down on the drying times, although we should have left the white "blanks" in the frames for the purpose of photographing.  Live and learn.
