My creative friend Helen, who makes and sells books that she binds herself, has made some using my wrapping paper. I think they look great, what do you think? You can see more of her books at the brilliantly named www.helbentbooks.co.uk
Tomorrow I'll be back in Birmingham for the Summer Market (www.summermarket.co.uk) at The Bond, from 12pm-7pm. I'm looking forward to it - I don't do many markets at the moment, so it's nice to meet people, sell stuff and see other designer maker friends! Plus there looks to be loads of delicious food there, yum yum.
I'm selling all my usual things, plus new prints, cards, see you there!
Hi everyone! I posted a picture of an envelope I made for some of my jewellery the other day out of some wrapping paper I had left over. I thought I'd share it with you here with a little 'how to', in case you wanted to make one too. It took me about 3 minutes.
It's really simple but great to use in most situations; writing a letter to a friend, sending a gift in the post or just brightening up your usual envelope.
Firstly, decide what size you would like the envelope to end up as. I wanted mine to fit a necklace so I placed it on the paper to work out the size;
Just make sure that you leave room for flaps on both sides and at the top.
Cut slits between the side flaps so it's easier and neater when you fold them in.
So, fold the side flaps in and then fold it in half;
I sewed the sides together but you can just glue them if you want.
Add a sticker or some tape to hold the flap down and you're done. Easy peasy. I sent mine to HM Revenue & Customs. (not really)
everyone, hope you are having an excellent Wednesday. Wednesday's are
always better than Monday's but not as good as Friday's, don't you
think? Anyway you might be reading this on a different day, like
Saturday and then you'd be well lucky.
Ok, so now we've got the blah out the way we can move on.
